      Terrible manager but great team members and culture aspects

      Pros

      - Culture of working together and wanting other to succeed - Fantastic benefits and perks (unlimited vacation, phone plan reimbursements, snacks in the office etc) - Great people working together. Employees at the individual contributor level were awesome! - Beautiful offices. - Strong attempt to push for a culture of recognition.

      Cons

      - Unqualified managers with poor leadership and feedback skills. - Lack of direction and planning for where the department (and company as a whole) is going. - Unclear breakdown of roles and responsibilities, employees are expected to make decisions without any clear direction and then are criticised for not doing things exactly the way management wanted it. - Lots of talking but nothing really happening.

      Be hired at the right time, otherwise it is impossible to be promoted

      Pros

      Great people, superb culture. A lot of opportunities to learn and fun events.

      Cons

      The biggest problem with Achievers is compensation. First of all, the payment rate is less than the average of the market. A lot of already left people hired with much higher salaries (a friend of mine who was a senior engineer and was receiving 85K at Achievers, hired with another company and now he is receiving 120K, and this is not the only case - I heard here and there similar stories). So I cannot understand what is wrong with matching payment with the market. Looks like they consider the lowest level of market standards, rather than average or highest. The second problem is, you should be hired at the right time, otherwise, it is next to impossible to receive a promotion. A co-worker told me he was rejected with the position of SW engineer (with less salary), and the same person 6 months later being hired as a senior SW engineer (with a higher salary)! There are a lot of engineers and senior engineers who are more deserved to be at a higher position, compared with some staff engineers hired recently. Looks like the management is more interested in new hires, rather than old employees who played a significant role in making Achievers a leader in the market. Promotions postpone again and again, and you should kill yourself to prove you deserve it, and yet there are people who are not as good as you, but they have higher positions and therefore receive a much higher salary.

      Pros

      -Really great people. Friendly, easy to get along with and always looking to help. This has been largely a constant in my time here. -The product and company have a very social and positive mission. This isn't just a product by corporations for corporations. The impact on the everyday user and their engagement is a genuine concern for those in product/client facing teams. This could be attractive for some especially if you're not generally drawn towards very technical and obscure software. -In general teams are usually open to allowing you to learn and take on side projects for your development.

      Cons

      -Needs more competitive compensation. -Behind the positive outlook there is some undeniable tension between client facing and engineering sides of the company. Some favoritism. -The product needs some updating to current standards. New features are great but when the older ones are still not the most user friendly or look aesthetically outdated it's not a good look.
