Civis Analytics Employee Review
Civis Analytics Product Manager Review - Great People, Unfortunate Leadership
Civis does an incredible job of bringing in amazing folks on the ground, who are the best I could ever imagine working with. The problems exist at the leadership level. Leadership needs to make a decision about being a software vs. consulting company.

Good place to start your career as a software engineer. There is an imbalance of senior engineers with junior engineers. Clear product direction is also lacking, they've made poor product decisions in the past. It seems like the product direction changes every year, which can get frustrating. Cross-functional teams can be a nightmare. Pay is low, but not terrible. Benefits are okay, WFH policy is somewhat strict. Company culture is great, especially if you're into progressive politics. Co-workers are easygoing and enjoyable. They're always encouraging others to learn and grow.
The company has an unclear vision and management is an echo chamber with negative attitudes towards it's employees with clear favoritism and class system with favor leaning towards data scientists and forgetting about everyone else.
The people are awesome
The company culture from the top is not
Hours are flexible as long as you get your work done and make it to your standups and meetings. People know each other well and there is a good bond between everyone. Everyone eats lunch at the same table, CEO, HR etc.
Perks could be better
