    Pros

    I am totally inspired by our co founders Dave and Aneel. They set the company culture and it's felt throughout every level of the organization. Not only that, the work is exceptionally interesting. The end goal is to make enterprise software that is engaging, easy, fun, and desirable to use. It's problem solving at its finest! Day to day, you get to work with other employees who have a passion for what they do. It makes it fun to come to work - you actually WANT to go to the office.

    Cons

    No cons that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it!

    Pros

    Focus on customers is world class along with product offering. Most customers are very happy and truly satisfied.

    Cons

    Sales cycles are very long and limited. Too many salespeople chasing too few opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Align sales territories so that the majority of sales representatives feel they have a solid chance to make their quota. Dissatisfaction among salespeople is high due to limited opportunities for success.
