    Pros

    - Very stable company which is growing fast and still has a small company feel. not a lot of red-tape / bureaucracy.
    - Great team of people. Everyone is professional, helpful and everyone contributes to the big picture.
    - Things are well planed and as a result there are stable and predictable schedules for important milestones
    - Continuous exposure to Interesting new technologies
    - Freedom and flexibility to learn new things and grow into new areas professionally
    - Veeva invests a lot of time in its employees and encourages self-improvement
    - Incredibly low turnover in the Network team.
    - Free lunches on Tuesdays.

    Cons

    - It may not be intentional but it can seem at times that the newer younger generation of employees get more TLC than the older crowed who have been here for some time. That may also just be a general trend in the job market so possibly not even a Veeva only thing.

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Free lunch
    - Unlimited PTO
    - Extremely good stock options (changed this year)
    - Competitive pay
    - 2% of your income in education
    - Fitness reimbursement
    - Work/life balance
    - Can switch teams, products, or job titles at any time
    - Huge mix of junior, mid level, and senior engineers.
    - Engineers from atypical backgrounds (passionate / motivated).
    - Week break at the end of the year.
    - CEO / Upper management seem to know their stuff.

    For me personally on my team (might apply to others):

    - Insanely good manager, he purposely wants us to improve our skills for our future.
    - Manager will be the face of problems that you make.
    - Everyone on my team is extremely nice, talented, and fit together well.
    - Occasional events with the team.
    - Relaxed work sechedules ("9-5" but flexible).

    I'm curious if other reviews end up with bad teams.

    Cons

    - Learning all the tech, software, terminology, products is overwhelming initially.
    - The core software which creates nearly all products is an insanely huge code base.
    - Huge code base is annoying to develop in due to size, slowness, and VM that's required.
    - Software growing pains (see last two points). The company has grown very fast and still looks to add thousands of employees in the next few years.
    - Some teams aren't as friendly.
    - Some teams are overwhelmed (dev ops seem to need a lot more people).
    - Lunch is sometimes meh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting strengths of individuals, hire non-traditional CS backgrounds, it creates a good culture.

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at Veeva for about 4 months. The people are smart, engaged, and helpful. The team overall is doing great things and there is a lot of excitement about the direction that the company is heading in. Veeva seems to truly care about the engagement and happiness of their employees, and they are also focused on doing the right thing for their customers.

    Cons

    The only negative I can think of is the hiring process. The CEO still reviews every single hire before signing off.... at 2600+ employees and growing, it is difficult to imagine how this is sustainable for the future. I interviewed for months before getting an offer, but I'm so glad I stuck with it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ever seen the video from Dan Pink about motivation? The one about Authority, Mastery, and Purpose? Google it - Veeva is like that.

    Autonomy: You are the “Captain of your Own Ship” but we have strong enough team spirit to help each other out.

    Mastery: You can learn about the industry, consulting, programming, and the product, gaining skills and experience which triple your value on the market - oh, and there is no such thing as a non-compete, because our CEO doesn’t believe in it.

    Purpose: What you do matters; what you think matters. Your everyday actions ripple across the company and the customers. People contribute (from their own time) and Veeva doesn’t take it for granted. People do get recognized, and given opportunities to help shape the future of the company and the industry.

    Coming to work here was the best decision of my life - I’m actually looking forward to Mondays.

    Cons

    Veeva is “Pressure makes diamond” or “Sink or Swim” type of company. Nobody is going to hold your hand while you walk up the stairs. You have to ask for help (which is provided in abundance) and you have to want to become better because of your own internal drive, otherwise you won’t succeed.
