I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay, smart people, awesome culture. People with bad attitudes tend to weed themselves out; Bazaarvoice tends to hire fantastic talent with great attitudes.

Cons

The location on 360 is a bit difficult with traffic. The company is growing fast and they sometimes suffer from growing pains.

    I have been working at Bazaarvoice full-time

    Pros

    New pay structure is over-market for Engineers
    Many smart people with whom to work

    Cons

    New products fail to impress
    Growing discord within R&D
    Poor technical leaders who play the blame game by pointing fingers at the engineers
    Poor follow-through on company wide or intra-departmental initiatives

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the culture that made BV great. The new sweat-shop, blame game culture is pure poison and has many engineers looking for the door.

    I worked at Bazaarvoice full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some people in certain groups are fairly cool; free drinks, snacks, etc; quite a bit of $ spent at company meetings and parties.

    Could possibly provide an adequate environment for a recent college graduate or someone hired to a management position.

    Cons

    Might not be allowed to perform the job for which you are hired; many people aren't genuinely all that friendly; some managers are fond of "micromanaging"; culture feels phony.

    Probably not a good fit for a professional with experience, a family, etc, especially if not a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to forget that some of your employees have worked for companies other than Bazaarvoice. Also, a lot of talent is overlooked, marginalized, or simply wasted because an employee doesn't fit a particular description or belong to a particular social group. Finally, don't speak on behalf of employees you don't truly know.
