"Great place to work!"

StarStarStarStarStar
Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Austin, TX
Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Austin, TX

I worked at Bazaarvoice as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing people who inspire you to try your best for everything you set out to do. Always looking for better ways to improve code, customer experience, and data visualizations. Great open culture, small tight teams, and visibility into where Bazaarvoice is heading for the future. Lots of learning opportunities during lunch and learn sessions, and hackathons.

Cons

Bazaarvoice is growing like crazy so seating arrangements might be a little cramped.

    Pros

    Exciting industry
    Incredible client roster
    Many smart, supportive colleagues
    Top-notch annual marketing conference (Summit)
    Interesting acquisition in FeedMagnet
    Brand has good value in job market

    Cons

    Constant change in executive mgmt
    Too many inexperienced mid-senior managers in 'stretch' jobs
    Too many 'change' projects, on top of tighter and tighter budgets
    Core product/service poorly architected, takes an army just to keep up
    Really inexperienced sales/field teams
    Culture that seems fun on the surface, but is actually damaging (For example, people can organize like crazy to wear costumes or make funny videos. But basic processes and tools that help people do their jobs are missing because folks don't want to be 'corporate.' Also, a frat-like environment remains, which stifles diversity and the innovative thinking that goes with it).

    Advice to Management

    Fewer priorities and stick with them
    Keep execs in role--no more flavor of the month
    Hire, reward and retain experienced, competent management
    More focus/progress on product and service cleanup
    Carefully review hiring practices to break up the current pattern, get more diverse thinking in the door
    Walk the halls more, especially in sales--you will be surprised how juvenile (and sometimes offensive) the behavior can be

    I worked at Bazaarvoice as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back, flexible hours, great offices, great people.

    Cons

    Definitely got a little of the tech company CULTure feeling there. The product isn't super interesting but you can tell there are a lot of people "drinking the Koolaid" as you might hear in the tech industry.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on more innovative product developments.
