    Few people are spoiling company culture, they are cribbing a lot but still not leaving the company. That shows their motive, management is still tolerating them.

    Pros

    If you work, you will grow. The stories of some individuals are inspiring. I heard that the iteration rate is very low. There are people on the floor who are always playing around and always wanted to find faults. It is always good to give constructive feedback, which will be useful to both Employer and Employee. I have read the previous review about the Managers. That itself speaks about the state of mind in which the person might have typed the review. How can someone judge a person by their habits??? As an employee, I would like to understand if it ever effected the productivity of the work from the pointed Manager/ Peer. I don't think such reviews should be considered. "Ideal environment to work and take care of your personal life".

    Cons

    Company is still giving a chance to people who don't want to be in the company and they are spoiling a good environment. I don't think they have the right to spoil such a good environment. They wanted Pay for playing around and learning to build resumes without working.

    I have been working at Xactly Corp. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * treats employees well with respect * pantry is always stocked up with good food, snacks, monthly team lunch, parties * friendly peers * flat organization structure * work from home option is cool * nice macky * spends a lot on employee benefits * Highly respect CEO for that he’s made Xactly what it is today * CXO team’s visit during their recent visit is a highly welcoming and re-assuring one. Was transparent & patient enough in communicating with foot soldiers (employees) on the floor. I would request for more such visits every year. * management corrected their previous mistake by appointing a tech savvy and capable person at the helm of affairs in India office. A right thing in this direction.

    Cons

    * this happens in some teams only: * no concern for code quality and contributions * manager always overrides the expectations of quality engineering, developers, peer managers and senior management * quality engineering & developers are always stressed out due to bad team management * absolute no regard for making the product better. ironically technical recommendations falls on deaf ears every time. “Hook or Crook, short-circuit technicals to make up for the delivery, but still don’t deliver" * scrum here is not agile, fragile * the mangers gives you options, but chooses on your behalf * managers tells its quality engineering teams not to log any bugs openly, tells developers not to write unit tests whenever there is risk of missing a release * day or night, micro-management rocks! I call it nano-management * no room for reward and recognition in team. (Not exactly asking for money & awards, even a thank you note will do for out of the line effort) * 365 days a year, every release is a same story and same outcome. Strech over weekdays, weekends and take peanuts as salary proportional to the effort spent with no incentives * consistently & glaringly miss deadlines due to bad planning, strategy, estimation, lack of (communication, inter-personal, mentorship/training, team-building, learning from past mistakes etc... skills), the team-mates always face the music for it from the management and during appraisals * several employees abuse the remote work option by taking up freelance & secondary tech jobs apart from working with Xactly * long time employees dominate the floor. Talks sweet in front of you, but bad-mouths about you in the back, to your manager, in private messages * don’t go into bad books with long time employees here in the company, coz they are all a cartel. They are all thick & thin family friends. They gossip with each other literally about everyone & everything in the company. * long time employees knows salary of most of the other employees. It is an absolute disgrace that this is happening (Avoid all sorts of $ conversations with them)

    I have been working at Xactly Corp. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can't think of anything beyond the flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    1. Managers are drunkards. Only the people who drink along with them can succeed in this company. 2. Not even a day goes by without micromanagement. 3. Since managers are remote, half of your day goes in attending meetings. 4. Very old technology stack and old fashioned way of doing things. Agile is for the namesake only.

    I have been working at Xactly Corp. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. Company is very nice 2. People who are working in other Geographic Locations(SJ, Denver, etc) are getting proper visibility. 3. Positive Attitude by newly appointed MD in India Office(which is the only factor people still thinks to stay)

    Cons

    1. Arrogant and weird behavior by Admin Team who thinks as next MD for India Office. (Admin is quite busy with personal life inside the office premises) 2. Pathetic peer label managers who don't know how to manage the team and motivate the people working under them. 3. Workload has been increased a lot in bottom label resources. 4. Resources are not sure about their next goal and target to reach.
