    I have been working at Model N full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are the asset of the company with strong executive team members. Flexible work hours for a work-life balance. Emphasis on the company core values and abiding by them. Has a long-term vision with corresponding short-term goals. We went through the worst times and I feel it is even stronger now.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will feel, you are not part of the decision making process. We build great Products, but sometimes I feel there is lack of long term vision for some of those Product. Management advocacy for off-hour working versus finishing it within working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BETTER PLANNING. I feel there is a sense of urgency for everything we want to do. With better planning, we can deliver much more great Products and perhaps deliver more than what we do today, which I think is bit stressful.

    Many times due to faster turnaround time, team needs to work in start up mode, which is fun but at the same time stressful..

    I have been working at Model N full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are the great, more than willing to offer help and support.
    Very open about how the Company is doing - both good and bad.
    Has a very good training program.

    Cons

    Work- life quality balance is an ongoing battle. "Whatever it takes to get the job done"
    Too many Chiefs that tend to micro manage
    No administrative support within the Teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out why so many people are leaving the Company, especially long term employees.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you want to learn and increase the slope of your learning curve, Model N is the place to go. Neither too small, nor too big, just the right size so that you get the benefit of working in a startup type environment without the risk of losing it all. Very entrepreneurial culture, you will never be short of challenging work. Not a place for slackers.

    Cons

    Be ready to give it all, very demanding and challenging and you get recognized by what you deliver, not by your title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should spend more time with team members.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. As a full-time employee, the company has subsidized for a free membership at the gym located at Pacific Shores.

    Cons

    I hate the commute and there are no sick leave policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a chance to work from home at least for one-day in a week.

    I have been working at Model N full-time

    Pros

    It's very much an open door policy. Employees at all levels can reach out to the Executives at any time. There is also a company meeting along with the free lunch every Friday. Therefore, everyone is very much in sync on what's going on in the company. I find this approach to be a huge plus for new hires (myself included).

    Cons

    The company just moved to a prime location in Redwood City, CA. Depending on what time you come to the office, traffic could be a challenge at times. It would be better if the employees could work from home every now and then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think the employees are fairly satisfied here with the direction of the company and the Executive Team. The company just needs to re-evaluate work-life balance; especially on how to work workaround the traffic jams.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    ModelN is a great place to work. Culture over here is very open and very flexible so it is very easy to balance work-life. Leadership is also great and provide you with enough space/time for work and opportunities to grow. Looking at the technology - you get exposure to fairly latest and cutting edge technology depending on the role and work. Talking about perks - ModelN would be way ahead to take care of their employees and providing open culture to them. Free Lunch on every Friday, Monthly Happy hour, Company Meetings/Picnic adds up as a great perk to the employees. Not to forget company shutdown during end of the year is another opportunity (in the form of appreciation) from ModelN to each and every employee to take time off, relax and spend quality time with your family - just before the new year kicks in. I believe that is why ModelN is able to bring great people/team to work with. I simply enjoy each and every day at ModelN.

    Cons

    I would not consider this as a really cons point but it would be great to do a review on pay scales. Although it is equivalent to Market outside but exceeding the same would make it hard to loose any level of talent and it would be easy to bring exceptional skilled people as well.

    Pros

    The companies core values says it all. DARE. You can read about it on the company website. People are super nice and respect each other. No jerks here. You have the freedom to execute with clear goals. Great mentorship and company believes in investing and training employees often and per need. Lots of fun events and beer bashes and happy hour. Fantastic gym with showers and towels and group classes free!

    Cons

    Management could do a better job of sharing their vision and future initiatives. Company has a lot of new initiatives so there is experimentation in processes and tools etc which leads to some chaos now but should stabilize in the near future.
    Monetary compensation is barely market to slightly below market. Stock compensation is no where near industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire people who have done this over and over who can find problems promptly and are not fearful of speaking their mind.
    Communicate coherently and artfully.

    Pros

    Company is proactively blazing new trails to transform company and create a leading new category. Exciting times. They try to retain some of the good elements of a "startup culture" but infused with benefits of a more established stable company. Best of both worlds.

    Cons

    Strategy and product direction can be ambiguous at times - but that is the nature of an emerging market in transition.
