    Pros

    Great company culture, getting stuff done is the order of the day, super motivated team driven to succeed. Teams work well across different parts of the org and everyone is open to collaborate and work together.

    Cons

    None to mention, usual growing company pains (dependency management, new responsibilities, new market requirements).

    Pros

    Bloomreach has been a fascinating place to work - not only because of the quality of its people from a raw horsepower perspective, but also from the amount of trust and opportunity people around you offer if you are willing to own and drive in your line of work. Products are phenomenal, people are fun, reliable and humble - and incredibly driven.

    Cons

    The company is going global, which by definition has impacted culture. Like any transition period, this can sometime lead to certain tensions - in my experience however it has only made the company stronger, more resilient and at the end of the day more interesting.

  6. "Great tech, if not a little naive on how to bring the product to market."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Bloomreach full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic technology and people. One of the best cultures for a working environment, people are very good, hardworking and uber intelligent. Never a dull day, and if you are someone who enjoys learning and are comfortable with accepting you won't be the smartest person in the room, this is a fantastic place to be. Also, the many perks, like unexpected gifts, company paid lunches, walking into the Mountain View HQ to see Yoga classes taking place, all in all makes the environment great and drives excitement to work hard.

    Cons

    If there was one con it would be lack of guidance and clear understanding of the product offering. The actual offering is still something that needs a more clear overview. The different types of businesses that can and can't benefit from this technology, not as a clear path as you are made to believe. The product still requires some maturity to fully achieve its peak, but I believe with the smart minds behind Bloomreach, it is only a matter of time before they perfect the product offering and keep moving from strength to strength. Also, there is a whiff of an all boy's club at the leadership level in the UK, but in saying that, there is a very good culture within the entire business.

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

    Pros

    I feel extraordinarily lucky to have found such a brilliant company to work at. The challenges that we have solved are very real problems for our clients and as the technology works so well we find ourselves being trusted advisor to most of our customers. The culture is absolutely brilliant and I am constantly amazed at the enthusiasm of the team not only to do their own jobs...but also to help others and to truly collaborate. We have an inspirational leader and I would walk through brick walls for him. I cannot wait to see the company continue to grow and enjoy the journey.

    Cons

    We move fast and so we occasionally run into problems because of that but most other organisations probably wish that they could innovate as quickly as we do, so its not a massive negative. Occasional challenges remain about working in one of the remote offices (not head office in Mountain View) but this is really a small challenge.

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

    Pros

    Top notch organization with great leadership team, Silicon Valley vibe, and smart people across the entire group. Enabled with technology (whatever folks need to do their job). Flexible working options. Offices around the world. Really care about people and their families.

    Cons

    Slow to integrate content (CMS) and search. While search is differentiated, some products are still in a tough commoditized market. Some attrition over the past few years (note: people had spent 4-5+ years at the company, so it's market dynamics).

    Cons

    1. Processes are pretty slow sometimes. 2. Should hire really smart architects/consultants to help us with the design approaches.

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

    Pros

    1) Every person I’ve reported to has been far and above as a manager than any previous places I’ve worked. A good manager is the most important thing for me in a job & really appreciate the care and attention the company puts towards making sure it hires the right people to be managers. 2) Career progression. I’ve been promoted 2 times in 2 years— including into a completely new role I didn’t have prior experience in. The company invests in its employees. 3) Great perks. Catered lunches, free snacks, free drinks, inexpensive healthcare plan, HSA contribution, Retirement contributions, corporate Udemy account (you can learn pretty much anything at no cost using this—from piano to programming), etc. 4) Great people! Everyone is kind & considerate. Not a lot of office politics either. Count many of my coworkers among my friends.

    Cons

    I don’t have any complaints! Other than this being the best place I’ve ever worked & don’t see how I could ever find somewhere else that could live up to Bloomreach!
