      Great culture in a high growth market

      Pros

      Great culture with great benefits, focus on employees. Investing in technology and people with the new platform. Inspiring leadership that really care about the employee experience. Really cool new office... although not back into yet.

      Cons

      Not keeping up to aggressive hiring goals, so need to prioritize, and continue to focus on employer branding. Such an incredible company. Need to tell that story.

      Pros

      The people and culture are the main standouts. The company actually listens to employee feedback. There are recharge days that extend long weekends. New office looks amazing, look forward to going back. Lots of opportunities for meetings with your leaders to talk about career and development. CEO and leadership is easily accessible.

      Cons

      There's a lot of work and sometimes working long hours. Wish the office was closer to a subway stop...but I guess they can't make a subway stop appear.

      Company doesn't have leaders in place that represent values

      Pros

      Honestly team culture of those on the same level as you is pretty great Opportunities to connect with others outside your team

      Cons

      The company does not practice what it preaches. Feedback is often heard, discussed like it is going to be acted on, and then nothing is done on it. This happens repeatedly to the same feedback. Some leaders on the sales team should not be in their position as they do not represent a leader you would think would work at employee engagement company. It will be interesting to see how the team develops over the next couple months with so many issues being swept under the rug.

      Pros

      - Great teammates and fun culture - Lots of autonomy from manager - Salaries were adjusted in 2021 to be closer to market average - New office is great - Decent handling of pandemic, will be switching to 2 days working from home per week - Effort put into employee development

      Cons

      Poor work life balance: 50 to 60 hour weeks are the norm. Requests from upper management outside of regular working hours are not uncommon. Little to no progression opportunities Growing pains

      Pros

      Some perks like being rewarded with points

      Pros

      -The culture at Achievers is truly amazing. For the most part, everyone is very happy, hard-working, collaborative, and intelligent. -Strong job security -Great product in a growing market -Employee benefits are very strong -'Unlimited vacation' -Work from home is allowed

      Cons

      -Career progression - it's fairly hard to be promoted regardless of your performance. There's a lot of 'office politics' involved with promotions. Also, job openings are limited. -Competitive salary - unfortunately, Achievers tends to pay below industry standards for most positions. This is likely a tradeoff for the great benefits package. -Need new/better laptops and tech for all employees

      Pros

      The leadership is among the best I have ever seen. Senior leadership walks the talk. Employees are supportive and ideas are not shut down.

      Cons

      I can't think of any as this truly has been a positive experience. Some people may not happy about returning to work so an announcement about a hybrid workforce situation may be welcome.

      Pros

      The recognition seems like a gimmick at first but it really does add to workplace experience when your work is being recognized and awarded. Transparent CEO and great leadership team. Full of great players.

      Cons

      Depending on the team, work can get a little bland sometimes, no real room for innovation.
