    After 5,5 years, I am still a happy person to work for Turnitin. Turnitin has a positive value, shows flexibility, and understanding to the employees.

    Minpunten

    It's a great place to work. So, there is nothing bad to say.

    Advies aan management

    They're doing a great job.

    Pluspunten

    I am relatively new to Turnitin and I think the company is making all the right steps to modernize the tech stack, expand the product portfolio and focus on customer needs. Change is hard and some people seem to want everything to stay the way it's always been but I believe the changes are for the better. The office is a great environment, with lots of great amenities and treats--not Google level but a solid employee focused set of benefits, snacks and services. Fantastic office parties and outings. Flexible time and location, work from home flexibility, etc...

    Minpunten

    Lots of work to be done because of all the changes which can sometimes be overwhelming.

    Advies aan management

    Stay the course. Some people will leave but the team that will result will be stronger and more committed.

    Pluspunten

    Company provides free snacks. Some good social activities.

    Minpunten

    People are not treated equally or fairly, there are examples of people being promoted to management positions only for being drinking buddies with a director.
    One of the directors in the UK office acts very unprofessionally on a regular basis, this director has shouted and threatened people in meetings and accused members of being unproductive while other members in the same team who are less productive seem to be humoured and be able to "get away with murder" without any repercussions. This director creates a split in the team due do not being able to separate personal from professional relationships.

    Advies aan management

    Separate personal from professional relationships as this is turning the work environment to be toxic.

    Pluspunten

    Great benefits
    Great training
    Variety of work to get into and the product itself is very interesting
    Gadgets provided at office are very Hi-Tec
    Free food, tea etc
    Very fun office outings

    Minpunten

    Toxic work environment - especially in the customer service area I've seen someone in a trainer position to be bullied away and others to desperately look for other positions so they can leave, lots of drama and you need to suck it up to the right people and give of the right vibes to be accepted or otherwise any kind of promotion or balance at work is not possible
    In some parts no possibility of growth
    They do ask you to put in extra work without any chance of a raise
    Very US-centric
    Communication between department sometimes missing

    Advies aan management

    Maybe look into bullying? Try to sort out the communication issues between management and employees

    Great collaborative team environment. Some really amazing hard-working people. The office is very much in line with the high-tech office vibe and bennies. company offers good compensation/benefits

    Minpunten

    Bad investment spiralling out of control. Ignored the impact on existing employees to see others let go. Disappointing to see the drastic change and "sweep under the rug" mentality

    Pluspunten

    The big pros for me of working at Turnitin are the meaningful work we do and the great work/life balance.

    Life is already hard for teachers. At Turnitin we get to make their life significantly easier with grading tools and originality checking, which saves teachers tons of time, so they can do their best at what they do.

    Further, Turnitin is not a "burn the midnight oil" kind of place. We believe in good hard work, but do so within normal 40-hour weeks. This balance has been quite good for the many years I've been here.

    Minpunten

    No company is perfect. At Turnitin we do have to deal with the same imperfections as other companies that have been around for while, like brittle legacy systems and maybe too many product directions at once. But on the whole it's good.

    Advies aan management

    Sometimes I think folks forget that our main product is for checking plagiarism; it's the reason why so many customers use us and we do it better than anyone out there. My advice to management is to ensure proper resources are spent refining and improving on this core competency.

    Thanks for sharing your experience! And your point is well taken about the focus on our originality service. In terms of resource allocation, we're generally looking to balance three things... Meer

    Pluspunten

    * Great people work here (but these are a dying species) that truly care about the business and product.
    * Great office, great view over the Bay Area.
    * All the snacks and beverages you can handle.
    * Laid-back office atmosphere (too quiet sometimes).
    * Management keeps and open door policy (but still, pick your words wisely).
    * If are an engineer, you'll interact with many of technologies and learn a lot within a short time-frame!
    * CEO and CTO are really sharp and competent individuals.

    Minpunten

    * This is a multi-million dollar company that should be a multi-billion dollar company by now, and if that didn't happen yet, it can only blame itself, despite having the monopoly of the market.
    * Market control by competitor acquisition is another of its go-to practices, since in-house innovation often falls short, as stakeholders get impatient when results are not achieved within a short time-frame.
    * Competitors many times smaller were able to disrupt Tii with just an handful of engineers and sales people (Hello Vericite!). Learn from that!
    * Middle management and so-called facilitators, specially those without a strong technical background are clueless time-keepers / buzzword repeaters, without a true understanding of what it takes to execute some technical requirements.
    * The core product stack is an old beast (not ageing that well), composed by a set of different technologies mashed up together over the last 10 years, and still withstanding the ever increasing load requirements - which is a statement to the technical skills of that group of engineers, that for many years have literally kept the "lights on".
    * Sales is a revolving door. And engineering is going on the same direction.

    Define a strategy and most importantly a product vision that inspire everyone, and give it enough time to show results! A successful set products is always the result of good people working hard and most importantly, believing in a sound ambitious strategy. When good people don't care any longer, since the strategy is constantly shifting, then you are missing an essential component of that magic sauce. Then, you should start worrying...
