Pros

Extremely smart and motivated people. The Bazaarvoice mission is to bring authentic user generated content to online commerce. It's a mission that is easy to believe in and very well respected in the industry. BV is the leader in the space by a long shot.

Cons

Because BV has grown so fast, it's still trying to solidify processes which is both a good and a bad thing. However, It's great to not have too much process.

Advice to Management

Keep doing an amazing job and don't let the BV culture slip away as the company grows into bigger shoes.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Casual culture, good benefits, CEO is a great guy who sincerely believes in his company and does a lot for the community and his company.

    Cons

    Incompetent management- they promote anyone who is "good" at their job to management without thinking "does this person have solid people management skills?" or "does this person have management training/ ever managed people before?" I have seen many good people fired for petty things or leave the company because of terrible/ ineffective management.
    No work life balance- I have been working here for a long time. I keep thinking this will get better, but it never does.
    Inefficient processes lead to too much ambiguity and nebulous, half baked resolutions
    Building is overcrowded, yet company is reluctant to let people work from home

    Advice to Management

    Require management experience or training before promoting people to management positions. Invest in hiring people from within to create better efficiencies.
    Let people work from home/ become remote employees! This will solve your building space issues. If you are worried about people not getting their work done, the interviewing process ensures over achievers and there is too much work to goof off!

    "A great opportunity - but it's a part-time job, don't expect full-time perks/benefits, understand that to enjoy the job."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great for stay at home parents, 2nd job, retirees
    Great pay ($10 - $16/hr)
    Variety
    Independence, freedom from workplace negatives
    Nice people

    Cons

    This job isn't for you if you thrive on interaction with your colleagues and feedback from your superiors. Reading reviews can get tedious. Compensation plan (completely based on failures determined by other employees) needs to be a better system.
