      Horrible Culture, no investment in Innovation

        Jive had an amazing culture of amazing people who have moved on to uplift competitors and create successful startups. The culture of mutual respect was so strong that a very large contingent of employees stay in touch, make recommendations for each other, and generally look out for each other.


        Aurea swooped in for the IP and customer list while demonstrating that they didn’t even fully comprehend the value or even the function of the product they were buying. They showed their hand on day one of the takeover in 2017. They showed that they had no respect for employees, nor for customers, and definitely not for security standards and certification that was hard fought for and won. Almost immediately they violated security protocols for certain customers and Jive's FedRamp status. Current management is unethical and purely self-serving. They must have done the back-of-napkin calculations before the takeover that they’d make their investment money back purely off the customer renewals for three years, while old loyal customers scrambled to find a replacement platform they could migrate their data to. Currently, as employers, they require spyware installed by IT on your own WFH equipment as part of your employment contract so that they may take screenshots and log keystrokes, just so they can make sure you’re being “efficient.”

      Anyone have any experience interviewing with BASF?


      Marketing Manager

      Went through multiple rounds of interviews for a manager role (Screening, hiring manager, group panel) and yesterday got an email inviting me to the final round with the VP. Only 2 hours after I responded and the recruiter sent an invite for the interview, I get an email saying they “are actually going a different direction for the role”. Upset yet another opportunity yanked away. I emailed back politely asking what happened to cause this sudden change for feedback purposes. Any thoughts (cont)


      Amber Hynes

      Hi, I had an interview Thursday. Back story, I worked with this company a few years ago for 2 years. I ended up quitting, I had applied because they are under new management. I explained to the manager everything that happened etc. She told me that there was high competition this hiring round. After the interview she said if all went well she would contact me with an update. (Yes/no) I reached out Thursday evening but the other manager didn't have an answer. (Check comments for the rest)
