The latest conversations about Tech
a day ago
So I recently got an offer at Tiktok but I’m not actually interested in joining due to their poor WLB. TC is currently 30% higher than what I make. Can I share this with my manager and ask for a counter offer? Counter offer seems pretty common at our company, but they don’t necessarily match the bump exactly, which is fine. Is there a chance that he is taken aback that I’ve been interviewing during work time and kicks me out? Don’t want to take the risk of actually accepting Tiktok…

Free food, opportunity to learn important and useful skill set, cool co-workers
Feels like they're trying too hard to relate to millenials with nerf guns in the office all the time, beer on Fridays, foosball, any game console you could think of and wings, queso and tacos the frequent free food it often felt like I was working in a never ending frat party. This made it hard to get work done and everyone spoke of the 'Volusion 15' you gain when you start working there. It also often felt like they were 'paying' you with these culture perks instead of financially rewarding employees. Trying to go public sometime soon so working employees hard for less in order to increase profitability Not flexible with hours, if you take an hour for lunch or doctor appointment you have to stay an extra hour. 8 hours required, no negotiating.3

Fun and laid back work environment, good perks, 4 weeks of paid time off a year. Good director in CE department.
Low pay overall and minimal raises if any. There is a very high turnover rate which can lead to poor customer experiences as new reps have little job knowledge. There is a strong focus on numbers as the call center is minimally staffed (in other words, high wait times for customers and a heavy focus on cranking out calls, sometimes at the expense of top quality service). Very little feedback for team leaders. Leads are expected to have regular meetings with their direct reports, but rarely get any coaching or guidance from senior managers.

They have free food all the time as well as other free snack type items in the office. They don't really take themselves seriously so it is a care free and fun environment most of the time. Thats about it.....
Well where should I start? I worked for Volusion for three years and only moved up a dollar in pay while yet consistently being a top performer. Like others said here there is no incentives/pay raises (EVER) and the management is a joke. This place tries to have fun and play office games and ride scooters all over the place and emulate what I would imagine what a Google office would look like, yet they are NOWHERE near where Google is. I am absolutely certain that when real companies like Google were in the beginning phases they were getting at it and busting their butts, not running around on scooters and rolling pigs around. I remember a conversation I had with a member of upper level management about the fact that I was continually passed over for raises/promotions when I was consistently one of the top performers, and discussing how that there was really no incentive for me to excel there and if it would be acceptable to just perform at the same level as the others there since they made the same amount as I did and I was clearly not going anywhere. His response was 'well when you came to work here you agreed to give your 100% and if your numbers went down we would have to talk to you about your performance.' Essentially saying that I would be punished for not covering everyone elses workload while they surfed facebook and barely met the minimum daily requirements for contacts. Oh and in that same conversation I was told one of the reasons I was passed up for promotion was because I was not 'social enough' and that I didn't participate in enough of the office activities. Well the issue with that is that at that time they actually had a contest going based on contacts and taking time off of the computers while doing literally the ONLY thing that may get me any kind of extra money out of this place was really not a smart thing to do in my book.10

It's a job They have snacks There is a game room
Really low pay No benefits for your first 5-or-so months No chance to get to know anybody you work with (because you're always on the phone) Company does not find it beneficial to focus on keeping support people, and instead accepts that they will have a high rate of turnover, so they don't do anything to make support 'concierges' happy9Volusion Response7y

There are some great perks and benefits
They pay the bare minimum and expect you to pick up the workload of whoever they decide to lay off that quarter.2Volusion Response7mo

The only pro I would say to working here is that you learn to deal with extreme micromanagement which is helpful because it will make your your next job that much better. The HR girls do a good job of making events too so that the whole team can get together and play games or eat some wings and drink some beer. But these pros you can get at any start up company and to be completely frank, they do not make up for the cons. It is also a pretty easy sales gig if you are just starting our your career.
Don't work here. The pay is way lower than what a decent salesperson can make elsewhere in Austin. I have watched all my friends come in, realize what this place is, and then leave. Management makes you feel guilty any time you want to take a day off, the one time I asked to take some days off for vacation with family, I was given so much push back that I almost flat out didn't go even though I earned that time off. There is only one decent sales manager there and he is the youngest of them all which says a lot about the rest of the higher ups. Managers will look through their employees laptops to see if they are talking badly about them or their job on our instant message system, what is this middle school? This place is miserable and I am on my way out thankfully. I would not recommend this place to anyone with even an ounce of sales talent, take your skills and go somewhere that you will not be treated like a child and paid terribly.7Volusion Response9y
I am happy to hear you enjoyed the perks during your time with Volusion – a fun, laid-back environment certainly helps alleviate every day work pressures. It is disappointing to learn you had negative experiences with management. With regular check-ins, anonymous surveys, and employee feedback, we are able to address any issues between management and their reports. In addition, I hope every employee feels comfortable enough to discuss any of these issues with their department head. Providing competitive salaries is a priority at Volusion, and we are continually evaluating to ensure every high performing employee is valued and compensated fairly.

Nice perks like beer Friday, free ice cream, casual dress code! Some of the most fun and brilliant people I have ever worked with.
Low pay and feeling under valued. I have worked here for three years, and it does seem to be a bit of a revolving door.3
