Pros

Great work environment with catered office, plenty of options for break entertainment, and weekly happy hour.

Engaging and challenging work.

Cons

Poor execution of plans, often coming across as uneducated, reactionary choices from many members of the executive staff.

Very little recognition from executive staff to the rest of the company.

Inconsistent policies. No way to view company policies as an employee.

Advice to Management

Publish company policies, work with staff to ensure that plans are properly understood and executed. Show your employees that you value the work they do.

    I have been working at Conversica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and a strong developer culture. Developers work well together and have each other's backs when something goes wrong. Constantly evaluating and incorporating new software technologies.

    Cons

    Rapid change can leads to bugs and bad data. System runs 24x7, so when things go wrong developers are expected to correct problems before quitting work.

    Advice to Management

    Announce (and explain) organizational and policy changes farther in advance.

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

    Pros

    Great people on the peer level, snacks and lunches provided, good location, quality health benefits.

    Cons

    With management that puts immediate profit before long-term gains, this place looks great until you actually have to interact with upper management or executives. Forward-thinking ideas are shelved indefinitely in favor of making a quick buck, and employees are hired (and kept) based on how little they are willing to work for or who they know more than proof of skill or experience.
    Constant possibility of being fired at any moment based on a double standard of high and unclear expectations and little to no direction, time, or budget.
    Leave your standards at the door if you want to get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on making a product worth selling before you try to sell it, and learn utilize the actual skill-sets of your employees instead of forcing them into positions where they are bound to under-perform.
