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

Pros

Strong Leadership, Strong Culture, Strong PeopleOps team, Excellent PTO benefits. Better than average health benefits

Cons

They make changes - then don't tend to wait to see the impact. Expect process and org changes to have an immediate and significant impact,where some changes take a while to see the upside. A lot of times, they will change direction before even having time to see the benefits.

Advice to Management

Some better training for folks, but that is improving. Handle Change Management better

    Pros

    Overall the company has great culture and hires talented, smart employees. Most employees genuinely seem to enjoy coming to work every day. Benefits are great - free food, unlimited vacation, team offsite events, and wellness plans, etc. The company hosts a fun and inviting on-boarding for new hires and most are encouraged to follow their career paths within the company.

    Cons

    However the finance/accounting department does not align itself with the rest of the company and has incompetent leaders. Employees of the department are belittled and heavily micromanaged due to the insecurity of senior management. The CFO is blinded by his staff as to what is going on in the department. You are encouraged to make changes and improve processes, but when you do your ideas are immediately shut down or you are asked to prove your point in so many different ways until you finally get frustrated and give up. The amount of unproductive meetings and constant fire drills is ridiculous. The workload is very poorly distributed and unmanageable. The moral of the department is horrible and most of the great employees leave within a year or so.

    Advice to Management

    The finance/accounting department needs to be completely restructured with new leadership. Acknowledge the low morale and constant turnover in the finance department. Stop putting 'band-aids' on every single issue and redefining it over and over again - fix the root cause of the problem.

    I worked at Bazaarvoice full-time

    Pros

    Extremely impressive portfolio of clients.
    In my experience, it was a very thoughtful and caring organization.
    Solid benefits, including an unlimited vacation policy.
    The pay was decent and on par with the rest of Austin technology firms in my experience.
    There is reasonable flexibility to work from home and get away from the office as long as you are in good standing.
    There is a lot of potential for this organization.

    Cons

    Extremely clique-ish. I felt like an outsider at times since there was a feeling that the "original Bazaarvoice employees" did not embrace the additional staff brought in to help the company grow.
    The culture felt very manufactured in my experience.
    My department, and at least one other I was exposed to, worked people to the point that there was low morale and high turnover.
    Turnover in leadership was a constant.
