Director of Engineering (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 27, 2018
Lot of interesting problems to work. Pretty easy to move between teams. Lot of home-grown software and not man opportunities to use anything else. Individual contributors are generally happier than management. Planning and cross-team collaboration is difficult and not well organized. Lot of good benefits and the CEO is the best. People generally care about one-another.
Good eng leadership, decent facilities, great peers
Lead Account Retention Specialist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 17, 2018
My review for Docusign is this it is a good place to work but like any other offices you have people that are out for what ever and looking to step on any one or just does not like a person and do anything to get them fired because they may feel like this person is a threat. But over all I liked working there they really do take care of their employees
Strategic Account Manager (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – October 29, 2018
Good, not great. Silos make it hard to understand company goals. Very disorganized sales organization. Very immature process, people have competing agendas, technology is vast but thoroughly confusing. Culture is okay, but nothing special.
RSUs, recent 401K match
Work/life balance. Disorganized. Little to no growth mentality.
Rapid Adoption Consultant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 9, 2018
While a good product, the culture at Docusign is at best unfocused, with no real long term plan for how they will train and maintain the native knowledge base. It is at best sink or swim with an emphasis on sink. Sales is cut throat with unrealistic goals, not enough staff to meet the needs of the clients, and a support team with a high skill and low direction. It would seem that the benefits (catered lunches, free soda, easy access to alcohol) outweigh the need for a concise plan for how the staff operates on a daily basis.
Director Enterprise Services (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 29, 2018
Great opportunity and great place to work that had a clear vision. The only reason I left was once it was close to going public they brought it a bunch of outside folks and I felt advancement was limited for internal growth. Not that that transition is done, I think the opportunities are there again as they grow and expand. Good people
Like to bring in big names from outside for higher up positions
Sales Development Representative (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 9, 2018
It was an absolute pleasure to work at DocuSign. Great way to begin your career, with lots of emphasis placed on training new hires. There was a clear structure for advancement and a competitive environment that allowed d focused and goal-oriented individuals to thrive.
Education Market Development Representative (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 21, 2019
DocuSign is a growing company, battling some learning curves as standardization is optimized internally; however, with a terrific culture and people all over the organization willing to help, it is a terrific place to work.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 28, 2017
This is a good company with a lot of room for improvement. A typical day is hectic and challenging. There is always a lot of work regardless of the department. I enjoyed being challenged every day. Management differs from one department to another; some like to micro-manage others don't. The hardest part at the job is the preferential treatment given to favorite employees regardless of one's work ethic. The most enjoyable part of the job was my work colleages and the product.
Free Snacks and Office Happy Hour every other Friday

It sounds great when you get the offer: beautiful building, high salary, worklife balance, start up culture, snacks and beer. The reality of it after a year: they hire people just to rotate them out of their company and keep their friends safe and give them the measly percent at the end of the year as bonus that is considered simply making up for inflation, but for you? You don't even get that, not even a thank you. Listen to the reviews that say high politics, as they are very accurate. Docusign is a boys club that will not even thank you at the end of the year. Don't waste your career here.
Onboarding Success Manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 5, 2018
A great group of dedicated individuals. There is a lot of cross functional collaboration and a very cohesive group. Great office space and fully stocked kitchens. Management really cares and is always looking for constructive feedback. A great place to work. .
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – May 18, 2014
The whole organization is top heavy. Despite having around 650 salaried workers (a few more contractors and temps), there are over 40 VPs and over 100 Senior managers or Directors. This doesn't stop DocuSign from continuing to hire an additional VP every month, though, at the cost of withholding compensation from any employee under director level. It seems like the shift towards an IPO plan has really been a move to get all of the current executives friends in on the cheap-stock-option action before the official public offering - Just another way for rich friends to get richer.
Promotions within the company are avoided (by regular employees) at all cost, as they come with 0% compensation change, a shiny new title, and a 300% increase in workload. That's it. No additional influence in architecture or product decisions, no added stock options. Just another move to see how much can be piled on an engineer before they burn out.
The employees who work the hardest and the ones who do just enough not to get fired are recognized as equals from the eyes of the executives, with hard work often being rewarded with nothing other than MORE hard work.
There are a lot of managers and directors who try to do right by their engineers, but they are completely powerless against the growing executive boys club.
