Data Warehouse Architect (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 24, 2018
Kasasa Is first and foremost a marketing company. They will go to great lengths to showcase themselves as a great company, making great products, and a great place to work. For all the effort to seem great, it's really not. The products are terrible. Testing is done in production. In technology, there is a caste system and if you are not on a team of five architects, you will have no say in how anything gets done. The architects like to read AWS blogs and then try to misapply anything new that comes out. When it comes time to actually impliment something, they will run away and leave you holding the bag. It doesn't matter how hard you work or what you get done as you will not go anywhere. The technology division already has a CTO, Chief Software Architect, a team of architects, and a VP. None of them know what they are doing. If you want to collect a paycheck and do nothing, this is the place for you. If you have ambition, you will slowly go crazy.
Culture is a big deal at Kasasa, and it shows. It's not just a box that the executives check for the sake of an objective. It's something that matters deeply to all the leadership and is thus put in everything.
This makes for a great environment as you are surrounded by brilliant people.
Sr Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 24, 2018
Liked management and coworkers. It was fun and interesting technology but project management was lacking. Product had a good foundation but last minute feature development showed an immature software development process due to mistakes at the project/product/program/overall management levels. Just wasn't the right fit for me at that time.
Client Director (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – October 31, 2017
My comments are based on my department/management only. Cut-throat, arrogant, egotistical, insecure, greedy management. Condescending, power-hungry. Extremely high turnover. Unstable environment. Re-org, re-org, re-org. Compensation, commission and bonus changes constantly.
Good company, good products but my group is horrible.
