    Pros

    The brand-new new product, Qlik Sense, is one of the top if not the best data analysis product out there. R&D has done a phenomenal job in creating something beautiful, easy to use, and useful. Qlik should be proud of what it has accomplished - re-revolutionize the BI industry once again. The challenge is still around increasing market awareness. Qlik has been around for 20 years but Tableau has recently taken the lead in awareness. Qlik is well-positioned to take that back with proper marketing and customer nurturing.

    Tons of career opportunities if you know how to network across the company. People change roles frequently and it's not discouraged.

    Cons

    The company has grown so fast (head count doubles every few years) in so many locations (Philadelphia, San Francisco, Raleigh, London, Sweden, Singapore, etc) that it's gotten very difficult to keep track of who's doing what and has resulted in duplication of effort or lack of alignment. These challenges can certainly be overcome but be aware of what type of environment YOU thrive in. Some people love the far-flung international culture, others don't fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO and most of the C-level execs are wonderful people, approachable and down to earth. A not-insignificant amount of politics one or two levels down. C-level execs need to make sure *everyone* live the company values, and possibly penalize performers who succeed by going around the values.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Communication of values
    Social events, time off for volunteering, annual company summit, potential for global travel. Company product strategy, market share and growth; positive regard from customers and industry experts.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement, compensation, lack of mentor program. Management speaks about building and strengthening the culture and it seems sincere, but it is not visible. There is little to no emphasis on developing the internal talent the company has. Perhaps that will change as Qlik continues to mature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are continuously going to push to keep expenses down in arbitrary ways, be sure to invest in your people. Provide more focus groups, career development and mentoring programs. Promote from within.

    Pros

    The product is awesome.

    There are some great people here that will go the extra mile.

    Cons

    This is an extremely political environment with backstabbing, deal making and promotions based on relationships. This occurs at all levels.

    Culture as represented by the CEO does not exist. He is too disengaged to know better.

    Pros

    Company has big name customers.
    Cool product that some users are fanatic about.
    Yearly company meeting with lots of celebration.
    Company gets good press from major magazines.

    Cons

    Mafia-like tactics of manipulation and pressure are becoming the norm.
    Support is not well-staffed or trained.
    Support can take days for customer response.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many customers are cringing at the new high pressure tactics. Listen more to customers and new employees who want to make a difference.

    Nice growth, not so nice upper management

    Pros

    High growth, great people, mostly friendly environment. Have a highly differentiated product offering good for midsize companies. Marketing is getting better.

    Cons

    Poor sales management at the top level in the U.S. Hands off approach leads to not knowing what is going on at the critical levels of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring and firing Presidents in the U.S. Live the culture you say you have. Seek out employee opinions and listen to them.
