    Pros

    Great pay working with great people

    Cons

    New management, no longer a small company feel.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and listen to what they're saying. A command and control model is a recipe for disaster.

  3. Good place to work for

    Pros

    Office culture is one of the bests things about this company to me. I enjoy every day when I come into the office. They provide lunch every Monday and always have the kitchen area stocked with food, drinks, and coffee. They provide you with anything you need to get your job done, all you have to do is ask. The company as a whole is growing very quickly and it is great to get in now during this phase.

    Cons

    Benefits are very comprehensive, but like most companies, they go up quite a bit each year. They offer many plans to choose from depending on what state your office is in. They do not have a matching 401k at this time, but that may be changing. The company is growing so fast, it is very easy to be left behind if you do not take the effort to be part of the growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with your lower level employees because they have some really great ideas and suggestions but are not always heard.

    Pros

    Pay is above market with excellent benefits, and company has a great product in a fast-growing area with satisfied customers. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Middle management in the Product Marketing department does not know how to empower and nurture employees and leads by fear and intimidation. Very adept at managing up to senior leaders while throwing others under the bus. Sees disagreement not as an opportunity to make an idea better, but as a threat. Very political and knows how to curry favor with the right people. Projects an image of helpfulness only to claim credit for the hard work of others. Encourages a "we know best" culture which really shows insecurity and immaturity.

    Advice to Management

    Talk with your employees in one-on-ones and find out what's really going on in marketing. Get rid of the hierarchies and the dead-weight and make the company more flat.

    Great engineering team.
    Interesting product.
    Good coordination and communication between groups.
    Pre-IPO company that is clearly headed towards an IPO

    Cons

    The usual challenges of a fast growing company:
    How to bring in so many new employees and get them ramped up.

    Pros

    This is a very special company. They present themselves authentically during the hiring process. They believe that company culture and attracting (and retaining) the right people are an indicator of company performance. This stems from found Rob Hall instilling this DNA into Adaptive from the start and protecting it along the way. The staff are super smart, driven, loyal, fun and friendly. Speaking of loyal, the core founding group of Engineers at Adaptive Insights still remain with the company - 11 years later! The leadership team is engaged, expert in their respective areas, accountable and deeply committed to the company's success. The company also embraces diversity - as a point of reference, close to half of the Executive Team are female. And there are tremendous opportunities for professional growth for employees within their teams, across functions and offices.

    Cons

    It's a very consensus-driven company so while the overall pace of the company and work remains brisk, in some teams the pace of decision-making can be delayed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - it's working!
