    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    * Coupa is growing 40% a year. * Great culture ... "we are all in it together" mentality. * The whole company rallies around new customer acquisition while also ensuring our current customers achieve value (you don't have to cringe when mentioning who you work for at parties). * Strong executive leadership team, including a passionate, driven CEO with a vision to lead Coupa from the David to the Goliath in the spend...

    Cons

    After sharing all those positives above ... I'm going to do my best to identify what prospective salespeople might consider cons to Coupa. * You must have a lot of energy to work at Coupa. It is a fast-paced environment and filled with passionate employees who expect each team member to carry their weight. If you don't fit this description, do not join Coupa. We are not a large company so it is next to impossible to...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in marketing and inside sales to grow pipeline (Chandar is making a huge impact). Continue to believe in your sales organization and respect that some sales cycles take a long time, with the potential for starts/stops, due to issues outside of sales control. Avoid giving backhanded compliments in front of broad audiences saying "finally, this has come in ... it's about time" on the win announcements....

    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Coupa is probably the best pay master in Pune area.

    Cons

    They expect an electrician to the work of a plumber and a barber to manage them all, thats the best analogy I could come up with. Please let people work on things they like to work, dont push them to a limit where they have no option but to leave the company

    Advice to Management

    Only think I would like to say is dont lose amazing engineers just to keep some really bad managers. The only department where Coupa sucks are it's managers, be it engineering, support or Operations. You've built a great team but it will be for nothing if you keep hiring bad managers who literally force people to leave.

    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're a self starter, target oriented, self motivated, this is the place to be. The company is still in its initial stage and the potential for growth is infinite. Having worked in 3 different IT giants in last 9 years, I feel at home here. Flexible working hours, great work life balance, great senior leadership with vision. If you're putting your 100% take it for granted that it will be noticed.

    Cons

    This ain't a place of literal fun and frolic at work. If you're a person who look forward to too many extra curricular things happening, it's not happening. Moreover, teams are pretty much self involved. Hence, everyone is work focused with a tad lesser cross team interactions.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Keep up the great work and keep us guessing with more work and learning curve for employees!

    We appreciate your review and perspective. We certainly have a bias for action at Coupa and we find fun ways to execute on our mission and hit our goals.

    Company Growth is more than 40% Per year Good work and culture HR team is good and co-operative

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction is less. Employee Growth is less than 10%

    Advice to Management

    Please think about employee Growth not only company growth. Employee Growth should show only for Guaranteed income.

    Pros

    Coupa is a great place to work. This place gives us opportunity to do our best everyday. We have great leaders who value customer experiences. I am proud to be associated with this growing company.

    Cons

    There is a hierarchical approach that is used by some managers in Pune office. They want to dominate and make all decisions. HR team need to be strong for Pune to grow and it is not today.

    Advice to Management

    It is very important that you should bring correct people with matching experience. Pune is losing very good employees because of the attitude of some of the managers. You should look at retaining these employees.

    Great engineering team to work with State of the art technology Empowerment in execution Cooperative work environment and people

    Cons

    - Low salary, company thinks people work for CEOs vision and for charity, salary is not a factor. - Employee benefits can be taken away without any notice or any consultation - There is lot of talk about culture and values but very little practice. - All employee related decisions are made at HQ, local HR team is not even consulted, they are there only to execute orders from the US.

    Tech employees are not a use and throw commodity, especially when you have tied yourself to a specific tech stack.
