    Callidus Software - Striving for Success

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsCutting edge technology and some of the best and brightest employees anywhere. Functional groups form strong teams becoming a second family. The working environment is good and should be improving with the move to Pleasanton.

    ConsWith the struggle for companies be profitable in this economic downturn we have undergone too many employee reductions and have lost good talent. It is also exhausting for employees to produce the same amount of work with half the resouces.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore and consistant communications; possibly "Executive Notes" can be from any of the Executives providing an update on what their function is working on.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsWhen you travel, it is all good.

    ConsWhen you work from home it is not good at all, the assumption is that you are kicking back

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop charging so much per hour, then you wouldn't loose the business to different companies

    interesting experience

    Director of Client Services (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    Prossmart people and good internal systems. Downtown San Jose location was convenient. Free baseball tickets was a nice perk.

    Conscompany was going through a big transition (moving from enterprise sales to SaaS sales) so not a great time to be at the company e.g. quarterly layoffs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest and don't sugar coat the challenges

    Callidus has positioned itself for significant growth and profitability. Well done by the Management team!

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsCallidus software has the strongest offering in the marketplace and an enviable list of marquis clients many of whom are included in the Fortune 500. More importantly, of these clients, 60% of them have been doing business with Calildus since early part of the decade (1999-2001). That is a tremendous vote of confidende in this era of rapid change.

    ConsStandard con for a small company includes less overall resources and support. While this is natural for any SMB, the rewards at Callidus far outweigh the risks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo one will ever complain of having too much information coming from product management. Although great strides have been made - a little more communication is a great thing for all employees.

    Leslie deserves a little more credit than he is getting; given the economic downturn we're facing.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsImmediate manager is awesome. Never a boring day. Product 'stickiness' is amazing thus Callidus will be around for a long while. Core functionality of product works great when rules are followed, designs are implemented properly and reason is observed. Company has redoubled efforts to achieve profitability. Company has survived (thus far) in the worst economic downturn in recent history...

    ConsWe act like startup, but we operate like a large company. We need to operate like a startup and act like a large company. RIFs cut too deep into the talent pool; many of our best have joined the competition. It would be better if we weren't fighting ourselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStick to the basics and set the focus on 'value'. You have the winning product; sell it. Eliminate the distractions. Admit your mistakes; act with humility (don't show humility) and share your plan to move forward while keeping your top talent.

    Einstein once said, "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."

    Good company with bad management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsTechnology leadership, work ethics, challenging work - leader in sales compensation management software. Gain knowledge in developing SaaS based product line.

    ConsUnable to breakthrough financial issues. Regular layoffs that affect employee morale. Lack of career growth due to constant downsizing and scrapping projects.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile making the company profitable is a very good idea, proper planning and development of tools is better in the long run than cost optimization via layoffs.

    Excellent company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsCallidus was adept at hiring quality people for thier positons which made working there easy. Solid bunch of professional people.

    ConsSometime communication was limited between upper management and lower mangement. Overall there was very little in the con department in describing Callidus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt this time I wouldn't presume to offer advice on how to run a company that size. Almost everything they did, policy wise, was to make the company more proftiable and kept employee moral in mind.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A company with smart people but with a long way to mature with regards to management.

    Compensation Consultant (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGreat opportunity to learn their software platform. Opportunity to get certified within their program. Very smart people to work with.

    ConsSenior management is not focused in the direction they want to take the company. They have a hard time turning revenue into profit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the feedback of your employees about what works on a project and what doesn't. Use that feedback to drive change in the way you handle your implementations. That change will drive improved client satisfaction and a more efficient implementation process. Your employees are the experts on how to get the job done, you are not, you are there to develop the company. Food for thought.
