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

    Pros

    Free gym and internet reimbursement

    Cons

    Pathetic work culture.. No value for employees. Before joining Avalara, I had read about the reviews on glassdoor, but I thought it must be someone who is spreading negativity about the company. But all that is written about the company is 1000% true. Service based companies are better than such al fake company. Everyday feels like I am going to school. Right from senior manager with 10 year plus experience has zero professional ethics. All she does is torture to the employees. I will never recommend anybody to join this organization or atleast support. Support here works like "CALL CENTER" and there is nothing technical we are suppose to handle. And if any feedback given to managers,they take it very personally and get angry on you.. They seem very immature.. This is really frustrating and please read all the reviews on glassdoor before coming to hell. I was not willing to even give 1 star to this company.
