Fast paced, customer and employee focused!

Client Success Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at Achievers full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAt Achievers, we understand that it is our employees that make us so successful. We are constantly growing, and adapting to that growth, but through that what has remained constant is the value that is placed on making employees feel like their hard work is valued and will be acknowledged. When our employees meet targets and deliver on customer expectations there is a significant amount of public praise that is placed on those employees. On top of performance based recognition incentives, we have a generous benefit package, which includes fitness subsidies, in office lunch, 4 paid volunteer days per year. On top of that, our leaders are not elitist, everyone is given an opportunity to reach out to leaders to give feedback, ask questions, and ask for help.

ConsThere is never a slow moment here, so if you are someone who prefers to coast along, this gig is not for you. as we strive to become more scalable, our processes our constantly changing, so you can never fully adapt before it is going to change again.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to give opportunities to existing employees to grow, rather than always going outside to hire.

A Place to Enjoy Going to Work Everyday

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at Achievers full-time for less than a year

ProsI have been with the Company for 9 months now. When I started it seemed like it was too good to be true, I assumed that once I was settled then reality would set in and the energy and work environment would become just like any other work place. Nine months later this is not the case. I still enjoy going to work everyday, Sunday's are no longer miserable because Monday is just around the corner.

The Leadership truly cares about their employees. They not only care about their employees today but also where their employees want to go and their career growth. Another pro is the balance of work/personal life. We work hard and things move extremely fast but we are always encouraged to maintain what is important to us in our personal lives.

ConsLike the other reviews have said, there is the occasional craziness related to any start up. This has significantly improved within the past month or so due to some key leaders joining the company.

A fast-paced, high-growth company that provides great opportunities for employees.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Achievers full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAchievers promotes from within. As such, the company helps true A-Players grow in their role and offer great career support and mentoring. The leadership team is approachable and allow employees' voices to be heard. The culture is upbeat, fast-paced, and high-energy.

ConsWorking at Achievers can sometimes be exhausting - long hours, tight deadlines, and mountains of work - but the reward and outcome is worth it. Achievers has a sink-or-swim culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to help employees grow!
