    Intentions are right and the leadership team is doing everything to launch this rocketship. Everyone in Sales celebrates your success and are willing to help. Sales enablement is doing everything to help be more efficient and are constantly introducing new tools. Great work/life balance.

    Growing pains. It takes forever to find simple answers which leads to frustration.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great company with a great potential, the formula WAS right with the right direction but something has changed...its time to figure out what and fix it.

    Pros

    FinancialForce offers best in class solutions and amazing work / life balance. Being a part of the Salesforce ecosystem, with a well known brand, prospects are very open and keen on taking meetings and having conversations. The pay is great, significantly above market average for similar type roles in Chicago. Variable compensation is very real, unlike other sales roles at companies that sell you on OTE and don't deliver....

    Cons

    There is some misalignment between marketing, sales operations, and the business development organization. There are too many restrictions on accessing certain reports and functionalities within CRM. Typical growing pains of a startup moving into a more mature phase.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overdue the transition to a mid-market business by putting in too many burdensome policy's and procedures within sales operations. The only way to ensure data integrity is to hold every employee accountable for their actions. That means opening up CRM privileges, rather than restricting.

    Pros

    FinancialForce has the best overall corporate environment! The participation and collaboration all the way from the CEO down to the individual contributors is awesome. Overall everyone has a positive attitude about the company, their roles, and their compensation. The executive team has been careful not to overgrow the company by headcount, and they have been very successful in hiring the right personalities for the...

    Cons

    It is a rapid growth company, and with that always comes some growing pains. Decisions on executive team changes can be challenging when the outgoing executives have been so well liked. It is the nature of company growth to shift executive alignment, so be aware of this element of the company if you are not comfortable with those types of changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communications open and transparent. The executive changes have already yielded results that are helping the company in getting to the next stage - keeping everyone informed and engaged will continue to be a key component of employee success, satisfaction, and retention.

    Pros

    Great people, good pension, good perks - vending machine, flexible working etc. Fantastic concept and company full of ambition as they strive to reach IPO. Job security.

    Cons

    Huge growing pains, products that might as well be written on completely different platforms for the amount they can communicate with each other. More and more tiers being introduced of middle management whose job it is to crack the whip with no concept of the team on the grounds workload and no interest in supporting them through their challenges. Services team incapable of...

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the Managers that add no value, fix your products which are stuck together with sticky-back plastic. Look long and hard at your Services team. Great concept, execution abysmal. The concept will only take you so far, time to start delivering for your customers.
