      Good place to work.

      Pros

      Great culture. Supportive management. Great teamwork. Distributed by nature. Work from home. Family over work. Expanding rapidly.

      Cons

      Jumping through career ladder is hard (it depends on individual teams, regions and approach of leaders as well). Generally hire external is preferred than promote from within. Moving across organisational functions is hard. Ex: consulting to sales or csm.

      Phenomenal Products, horrible management

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great products. Satisfied customers. Phenomenal pipeline and growth.

      Cons

      Worst management ever. Still suffering PTSD from being called “stupid” “idiot” “unprofessional” as well as management stating that others are “idiots”. Seen people cry and shaken. Turnover is high - one headhunter told me this was one of the highest turn over companies he gets his leads from.
