        Approves of CEO

        I have been working at Avalara full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        High paced and fun. Original entrepreneurial culture still strong now that it's global.

        Cons

        High growth is not for everyone. If you don't like constant change and the need for self-reliance then not for you. You won't get a clear career path generally cause the company shifts so fast

        Advice to Management

        Keep the drive strong. Listen to employees more - they have to keep it together

        Pros

        I cannot find any pros

        Cons

        no Training, no support, very bad management in some areas of the business and if you dare to say something you will be pushed back

        Advice to Management

        Maybe is time to recognise that certains managers who harass and discriminate the employees should be replaced

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

        Pros

        Free beer & lunch some days!

        Cons

        Once you start, they half way train you and then leave you to depend on other reps for help. The managers are always on vacations or in meetings, so no one will help you when you're new. Our manager use to ask us to write good reviews about the company because the real and honest reviews were so terrible. Leadership constantly changes comp plans, so our pay was never really too clear. They promise you one thing when...

        Advice to Management

        Learn to listen to your employees and TREAT THEM ALL FAIRLY. People shouldn't be afraid to speak to you about anything. Also stop making so many sporadic changes without fully thinking them through, it makes your team feel as if you don't know what you're doing.
