    Great Company, Innovation at the speed of light. Needs more process to be oriented, which it will be now that SAP has acquired. Pure SAAS company with alot of room to grow.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking since SAP acquisition. Work and workplace are very hectic, but that is slowing down since SAP aquisition.

    Pros

    It is not an easy place to get a job, but it is so worth the effort. My colleagues and our leadership bring passion and intelligence to a complex set of business problems and we have proven out, when done right, it drives great things for companies. Not only do we make our customers better employers, we apply the technology ourselves, in a way that makes it easy to focus on the most important things, and to see real time feedback on achievement. It's a beautiful thing.

    Cons

    It's not easy to get a job here - the folks doing the hiring are serious about screening people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the enthusiasm and the transparency. It's appreciated. Stay committed to the customer experience!

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions, my manager is very helpful and receptive to issues I have. The people I work with are all very supportive and helpful.

    Cons

    Lots of different systems to log into (Okta is resolving some of this). Not all processes are ironed out. The company has grown so fast that policies and procedures are now trying to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the individuals on your teams.

    Pros

    Great compensation that is extremely competitive in the software industry. The people here are passionate and love to win, it really seems like everyone, from legal, finance, and even internal HR, is behind sales. The overall culture is exciting.

    Cons

    They are working hard to ensure customer service is at the same level as the technology, but it can be problematic for an employee to seek answers on behalf of clients.

    Advice to Management

    Arm the field sales with the abilities to assist existing clients beyond just saying "create a case"
