    The office is growing at an exponential rate and can be crowded at times.

    Pros

    Conversant has a great work life balance, unlimited vacation and great benefits. Alliance Data which Conversant is an umbrella under I feel truly cares about the company.

    Cons

    Management needs some work. Really! How these people got into their positions is really surprising. A lot of good ole boys club, women really don't count. #metoo.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horse. We all work for the same company!

    I have been working at Conversant full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited time off. Tech forward company.

    Cons

    They care so little about associates. I would recommend working no more than 12-18 months before moving elsewhere. Not the best place to climb your career ladder long term. They are not here for you or to support you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people. You pass over a lot of people based on arbitrary rules and screw over good ones simply because of those rules. That is why they leave.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, unlimited vacation policy.

    Cons

    There's virtually no way to grow as a developer in this position. You're locked into a very small developing environment that doesn't challenge you to learn more. Most of your projects will be different variations of the same exact issues repeated over and over and most of your day will be occupied by meetings . Compensation is below average and despite promised opportunity for growth it is unlikely.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees competitive wages or at least utilize them to their ability. Otherwise you'll continue to lose talent.

    I worked at Conversant full-time

    Pros

    Intelligent and fun people, definitely a younger vibrant vibe in the office - even while there are still quite a few 30/40+ people, which I think is a good thing.

    Cons

    Not a super collaborative environment, a lot of things kept behind closed doors or "secret". Can be rather competitive as well, so these things together breed a high tension atmosphere. Meetings can escalate quickly.

    Pros

    - Great work life balance - Unlimited PTO
    - Culture is great. Conversant is filled with intelligent, hardworking people
    - Managers really care about your development as an employee, depending on who you are reporting to
    - Competitive 401k matching

    Cons

    - Upper management insists that this is a tech company first, but salaries do not reflect that in the tech departments
    - Your experience here depends heavily on what manager you report to

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I could give is to limit losing talent. Brainstorm ways to keep people around.
