    Pros

    free breakfast, lunch. some people are smart and all they want to do is do good work. chance to take advice from them is great. some people have zero attitude. its so easy to approach them. but they are very few. some people genuinely want your input and take no offence in changing their opinions if you can convince them. depends on which team you are in but you can have really good tools to make your work easy. but...

    Cons

    experienced people dont care about infrastructure but some fundamental problems are definitely there. office is cramped but that's ok. the problem are the people calling the shots inside the office. Its typical service based company. India management call themselves product based company but they really are simply serving to US office. major chunk of engineering talent is in India Pune office but all big decisions take...

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees. really genuinely listen instead of just doing survey formalities. understand product culture. stop following other companies. make your own path in giving best experience to your people. identify and break bad people. break the small kingdoms. open door policy doesnot mean that you first put yourself in cabins. They should mould good behavior in managers instead of doing god knows what in...

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

    Pros

    Free breakfast, lunch. Some departments r good.

    Cons

    Very less learning experience. Managers got just promoted because there was no one. And because of this they don't know anything. Just take big salary but never justify it. They make sure no talented people r hired or survive as it will create danger to their (Just Salary taking position.) Talent is not at all respected infact managers fear such people and frustrate them. Many good people left because of this reason....

    I have been working at Avalara full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good company, Good policies (just documented). HR is neutral and don't have any rights. Free food i.e lunch snacks and breakfast. Be in good books of managers(work for him, refill his pegs) you will be promoted as Tech lead/Sr Tech lead, no need to work.

    Cons

    Worst old employee, promoted to Managers but does't deserve it. Unique technologies in connectors but everyone try to save position. Ready to do all unprofessional stuff to save themselves. Get automation framework designed from QA and fired that engineer. Play with career of interns.

    Advice to Management

    True is true and false is false. Scott, You have big dreams and you can achieve it.... but you have to learn Indian politics in your organisation.

    Facilities are nice, morning breakfast, lunch and evening snacks are there with free of cost, other facilities too

    They can kick you out anytime from job without proper enquiry, if any complaints against you, you are gone, even if you are right, hr doesn't enquire properly...

    Advice to Management

    Please enquire real reason to remove one employee. Do not depend on manager's statement only.
