Its team of 70 employees has grown ten-fold in the past 14 months alone and the company is projected to double in size by the end of year.
The San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal conducted an independent, third-party survey, of employees from more than 300 Bay Area companies in order to rank BloomReach in the #8 slot. Employees were asked to rate their company based on team effectiveness, alignment of goals, trust in coworkers, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, work engagement, and people practices. Company rankings were announced at the 2012 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area Awards reception, held on Thursday April 19, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
