    Pros

    Qlik goes out of their way to make sure that they hire the right people. The interview process is extensive and all who you interface with are up front about the company. Many people have been here for a long time, and have taken on different roles over time so growth, promotion and just trying new things is all accepted at Qlik. You can't find a better group of people to work with and for.

    Cons

    Typical rapidly growing technology company that needs to take the time to put process in place for repeatable success.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows and prospers, keep much of what made us Qlik in place going forward. Having Management fully accessible is a great plus for Qlik. We want our employees to still bleed Qlik green!

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to do what you think is right and the team overall is very passionate about the products. For a software company, it is refreshing to work where the CTO actually uses the product daily for work and personal use. There is room for failure as long as we are trying to improve and learn.

    Cons

    The company is heavily decentralized. Even with all of the latest technology, face-to-face meetings may mean a lot of travel. It will depend on your role. There is a lot of change of happening which isn't a negative really but something to realize when joining the company.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is really good and there needs to be a constant attention to it as the company grows and expands. Being responsive to a growing company can be more difficult unless everyone at the company understands that they can take responsibility on their own.

    Pros

    They are always pushing you to succeed so that you grow to be all that you can be. They are some of the most kind and patient people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    They are always pushing you to succeed so that sometimes you are drinking from a fire hose. This is only a "CON" in that there is a lot to learn, and I had to put something in this space ...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, we will catch up ...

    Pros

    QlikTech values its employees and treats them well. It has a set of corporate values that are continually emphasized, and this creates cohesion in the corporate culture. The R&D department (i.e. software engineering) is growing, and seems to have a continual improvement process in place, i.e. it learns from its mistakes and improves its process.

    Cons

    No significant cons experienced during my employment.

    Pros

    Company values and the attitude towards the employees. Yearly employee summit that everyone attends, not just sales. Multiple programs for employees to help their communities.

    Cons

    No employee stock purchase plan with limited opportunities to earn stock. No international user group.

    Advice to Management

    Create an employee stock purchase plan. Your employees will definitely invest in the company

    Pros

    Its a complete package. Work wise flexible, timings flexible, dress code flexible, wfh option available, salary package is more than industry standard

    Cons

    Global Management hardly considers inputs from india team and that makes us to only follow and not initiate process or system update requests.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment where everyone is empowered to make a difference. It's a very Swedish culture where opinion is sought and respected no matter the role you undertake.

    Cons

    Beginning to show the signs of a large corporate organisation as big hitters are brought in from the big BI vendors. This can lead to a very political environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Resist the urge to become too corporate as the employees love the culture. Listen to the voice of the customer more as they love the product but want to feel listened to.

    Pros

    High Performance growth culture and an agile business. If you're a self starter and you like a fast pace with high levels of autonomy and authority, then you'll like it here. If you want a predictable 9-5 where you're told what to do, then this isn't for you.

    In sales, the commission plan means that if you can sell, you can make money and get paid the following month and the commission rates are some of the highest in the market.

    The road map and platform offerings keeps on improving

    Cons

    Still some growing pains around processes.
    No stock purchase programme for employees and quite a limited stock option scheme.
    Culture can be schizophrenic and swings between Swedish and American.

    Advice to Management

    Start offering performance based stock options and create an employee stock purchase scheme.
