    Pros

    The company is doing well externally—the competition is not able to keep up, customers are happy, the stock is progressing nicely, people get the vision etc. The company is doing well internally---people like working here, the perks are fantastic, they give stock and raises when you perform, promotions are happening internally instead of people coming from the outside and Callidus is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Wish I would have signed up for ESPP earlier—the stock is doing really well.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

    Pros

    Most all groups within Callidus really pull together to support each other and drive the companies successes. Nice offices with perks such as free lunches, parties, company outings etc. you can advance if you know the right people.

    Cons

    Upper management does not seem to respect the rank and file employees. Altough the company continues to announce record numbers, this doesn't translate into salary increases for those that contributed to its successes, unless you are in the sales group or a senior executive, bonuses have been paid at a fraction of their targeted amount. The only communication out of the HR department is during open enrollment.

    Pros

    Definitely a lot of flexibility with working remote or working in office. Employees there before me made it a painless process with learning the products since the learning curve is so big.

    Cons

    Pay could definitely be better for the technical level or work demanded from employers on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Interesting place to work with a fun culture. People are great free food, etc. Nice office

    Cons

    Management needs to step up and get in sync. They are not at all connected - the right hand simply does not know what the left hand is doing - or do the even know if they have a left hand???

    Advice to Management

    Get together, focus, and communicate to the organization -

    Pros

    Publicly traded SaaS company, in the East Bay. Easy hiring process and interviews with HR and direct manager. Easy spot to get sales experience on your resume. New office space in Dublin, close to Bart. Annual company conference in Las Vegas.

    Cons

    Well first nobody can pronounce the name or understand it when you tell them who you work for. Over 12 software solutions but only 3 actually sell and some don't work. Management is completely disorganized, constantly acquiring small companies to add to bottom line but do nothing with the people or product once they acquire them. And unless you have an accent from across the pond good luck ever getting a management position.

    Advice to Management

    Refocus your efforts on your core products and cut the platforms that aren't selling.

    Pros

    Flexibility to define your work and room to operate Strong Cloud philosophy and ability to understand what's trending Fantastic office, open environment and emphasis on creativity

    Cons

    Need to be self driven, mediocrity is not encouraged

    Advice to Management

    SMB segment should also be a source of growth, hiring a SMB expert could be a good move.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with - everyone is really pulling in the same direction and bought into the vision of becoming a top 5 cloud company. There are some really talented people, a great mix of seasoned industry pros and bright energetic individuals looking to make a name for themselves in the industry

    Cons

    You have to be able to work hard and try and keep the discipline of a good work-life at times and there is a lot going on in the business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and keep sharing as much as you can. Having everyone on the same page and keeping us informed of the company direction is really important.


  10. Overall, I enjoyed my job. I worked with good people and had a great manager, but disagreed with company direction.
