to work for

LIKE A TRADITIONAL bazaar, this company encourages shoppers to talk about what they are buying. Its own employees get a buzz out of work, too, with a positive score of 84%. Bazaarvoice develops applications for the websites of clients such as Dell, John Lewis and Asda to allow their customers to discuss products, campaigns and brands. It then syndicates the content of these conversations across the internet to advertise to other potential shoppers. The London firm, which has headquarters in America, does best in our survey for My Team (88%, in 22nd place among small companies). It grew by roughly a third to 94 employees last year, with 44 new joiners, but there is still a strong sense of family (89%). Bazaarvoice has a strong social conscience (92%, in eighth place) . Last year the firm became a patron of the Prince's Trust, running workshops to build young people's confidence.

Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

77% of staff agreed

I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

8 out 11 of Bazaarvoice's managers in the UK have been promoted internally into their roles - they did not join Bazaarvoice as managers. This means there is a great understanding within the management team of the needs of the team members and their clients in line with their core values as a business. Also each manager is held accountable on each of their values and they should demonstrate qualities in their work aligned to these. This also applies to recruitment and the people they hire. Each candidate should be left with a very clear impression of the values of Bazaarvoice and how they implement that into day to day work. Candidates are all assessed based closely on their values as well as their core competencies.

My Manager

95% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

As a result of strong performance across the teams in June 2014 the entire UK team from Bazaarvoice travelled to their headquarters in Austin, Texas for a global ‘All Hands' meeting which mixed receiving company updates with recognition of people, celebrating and socialising. As well as this day long event, the team were able to stay a whole working week to spend time in the US office collaborating with colleagues from around the world.

My Team

92% of staff agreed

This job is good for my own personal growth

Each year at Bazaarvoice's annual ‘All Hands' meeting employees that have gone above and beyond within their roles or by contributing to company culture are recognised with a reward of equity within the company. Additionally within quota carrying teams there is the opportunity for over achievers to attend ‘Winners Club' with the CEO and other senior executives. This year five of the team flew to Mexico for a five day 5 star break. These are both examples of significant rewards but throughout the year Bazaarvoice will look to reward and recognise individuals who display and represent their values through spot bonuses and adhoc announcements to the team.
