Intern - External Sales and Sales Operations (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – 16 October 2017
Great place to work. The people there are amazing and extremely helpful for learning the ins and outs of the job. The company provides a competitive work environment with a focus on making you better at what you do.
When I started at Bazaarvoice it was a small company culture, even though the company had gone public and had over 800 employees. Over the last 4 years, there has been a decent amount of attrition, and some of the newer leaders in the organization come from a larger corporate culture. That said, there is a significant contingency of technology professionals that keep the 'start-up' style culture thriving as much as possible.

Too many stops and starts, SaaS portion of the business needs innovation. Big divide between c-suite and the people that are making it happen. Unfortunately the company stock value has been in steady decline.

Bazaarvoice has a great work life balance and they really take care of their employees. Compensation is competitive. Benefits are great. More importantly, the people I work with have become my friends outside of work and I love being around them.
Paid fairly well for the work being done, however...

Paid fairly well for the work being done, however remote positions by design are meant to be flexible. That's why they are attractive. This job is not. Sporadic hours every day of the week that are set hours (12-1, 6-7, 10-11 on Thursday, etc.) along with flex hours if you'd like to work more than your set schedule. You'd think for a job requiring a college degree there would be at least a professional trust and respect for the employee to get the job done.
I have no words to mention about this organization. Micro managing, no clear vision, talking without goals, & untrustable. Product roadmap the most disastrous. The organization quickly grew but now it is collapsing faster.
Company with a prospective future as an innovator, brand leader and creative talent overshadowed by poor management.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – 13 April 2016
Pros -Meet and work with incredibly talented people -Flexibility in work schedule (in office/remote/work from home) -Be a part of a SaaS company that has arguably interesting and innovative products/services
Cons -Uncertainty about what kind of leader you're going to get. (Don't know whether your leadership is going to help you thrive or set you back a few years. People are always leaving their jobs, thus department and team structures are always shifting on a rapid scale.) -Blatant office politics. (People, usually leadership, manipulating their way to a bigger paycheck/recognition no matter the consequences, workplace go…
Overall Take a deep look at the kind of managers and leaders you hire and how they treat their teams. Listen to what team members have to say and how they feel. Ask yourself why so many good, talented and exceptional people are leaving Bazaarvoice.
Work with talented people
