    I worked at MicroStrategy

    Pros

    Some very talented people work at Microstrategy that are willing to work very long hours to meet unreasonable deadlines.

    Cons

    The executive team surrounding Saylor are "yes" men, afraid to question his unreasonable demands or have a reasonable discussion on any topic. No one is empowered to make any decisions. No training or advancement for employees. Large scale layoffs at Saylor's whim. No long or short term stategy. Most key people have left the company in the last year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put in an executive management team to run the company

    I worked at MicroStrategy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong technology and platform. Vision and delivery innovation - mobile & cloud. Great to have been a part of this excellent company. Executive management has always been creative and innovative in the business intelligence space. Culture from the beginning has always been work hard / play hard and while the days of corporate cruises are over, the rewards for excellence are worth it.

    Cons

    There was a bit of gyration with regard to the sales model but that appears to have stabilized.

    Pros

    Innovative environment and great team

    Cons

    In my position I would love to move away form excel, unfortunately due to the fact that we do not have enough systematization/ atomization to support our daily work projects are difficult to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love management to invest more to support internal administration and activities. Unfortunately today this is not possible.
    Salaries need to be competitive with the market place
