    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great office space, management was easy to talk to. Developers, designers and marketing team was really close to each other, and exchanging ideas was pleasant since nobody took a boss-role every one was open to explore suggestions

    Cons

    Not much training, really tight deadlines, working overtime to meet deadlines was very common, salary compensation under the industry standard

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have a global footprint and it's a great experience for anyone new to the e-commerce space.

    Cons

    The leadership team does not really understand nor have any experience in running a business and what's most important to the merchant. Everything is trial & error and we will learn from our mistakes.

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Powerful platform with great potential for growth.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership that understands the e-commerce industry and only has a copy and paste strategy. Let's do exactly what Shopify is doing... 3 years later. US office, which is now closed had a team that actually understood ecommerce and many ideas and concepts were either turned down or taken and later implemented 2 years later.

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Open source technology that is being used around the world. Bruno was a genius and had a great vision for the company and taking the company worldwide by adapting the US culture and customer service for all clients based in the Americas. I worked with great managers/ leaders who offered amazing training and support. We had no titles in the US and everyone worked together as one.

    Cons

    Slow progress in evolving the platform and adapting to the need of our Merchant Base. The US and France office never have seen eye to eye. Our mission was to be there for our merchants. Communication was key. A merchant who is having issues and needs support is not the first priority in the minds of our top leaders of the company in Paris. US Culture = Customers come first PrestaShop Culture = How much did they pay? They can wait and we will reach out to them when we have the time!

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time

    Pros

    It's kind of like entering an amateur league to gain experience, then finding the right company in the ecommerce space to move up into the big leagues. A great way to farm your experience nothing more.

    Cons

    Baffling and frustrated upper management push blame on hard-working employees due to the "too many chiefs, not enough Indians" motto. This then turns into political inner workings to patchwork the issues and write false reviews for a high turnover company that can't foster relationships internally to keep skilled employees happy.

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Internet startup. Great product. Great office. You might get to travel to Paris and some trade shows. Team lunch from time to time

    Cons

    Prestashop used to be great for the first few years The US. Management and employees cared for each other and everyone was honest with one another. Communication was great, basically we were part of a team that cared. Sales were doing great and the company was growing. But then it went all down the tube. After 2014 Nobody has cared about the workforce and we are the ones facing the customers. The benefits and work conditions are horrible. Low pay and no raises. Full disclosure I left a few year ago and am now writing this review.

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain experience and learn about the industry.

    Cons

    Poor level of communication from the HQ and CEO's vision is all over the place. I've never seen nor spoken to her, which is pretty bad.

    I worked at PrestaShop full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - You may get to go to Paris. - You get good experience working at Conferences/TradeShows. - You get good experience working with a different culture (Paris). - You get good experience understating the workings of an software system, and Wordpress. - You build a strong relationship with other employees who are suffering through the incompetency just as you are. - Miami and Paris are attractive cities.

    Cons

    - Full disclosure: I waited two years to write this review because they will probably figure out who I am and give bad references. I know this to be a fact but I have enough experience at other companies that I'm not worried about at all anymore. I didn't want to be petty and write a bad review but they need it. Moreover, I spoke to current employees and partners and they all agree that PrestaShop has not gotten better but continued to get worse, both in the software and in the organization internally. I really trying to give the best advice here. I have no reason to write this other than to help potential prospects and partners. Only go here if you have nowhere else to go, as a temporary measure... If you really feel you got lucky getting this job with whatever salary they give you, do it. But never take this job over another. -The career opportunities are NOT there, no matter what they tell you. There are no opportunities within the company, or once you leave, see the next point why. -Reminder: NOBODY has heard of PrestaShop, only some people in Paris and some developers in the US know about it. You're better off being a Office Admin for Salesforce than a Director/Manager at PrestaShop -It has a BAD reputation from all the years of incompetency and arrogance. -Executives (all French) do not care about you (Miami). They care about their French employees. -The Miami employees that actually do stay there 2+ years are making a mistake (like me). - If you ask ANYBODY who got fired/quit this company (so many!), there is a 100% chance they are happy somewhere else. I know because I still talk to 10 former coworkers. - NO RAISES. Don't even think about it. I'm serious. I'm talking about a 1.5% raise when salary is less than 40K, it's a complete joke. -You are replaceable, dispensable. They look for cheap young talent, then they tell you you're talented until it comes to review time, then all of the sudden you're a horrible employee. - It's clear to me that the main people in charge have never ever run a company that actually cared about their employees' growth. - Don't even get me started on Benefits... Horrible.
