    Pros

    I have been at Cornerstone for 8 months at the time of this review.

    The engineering team is filled with extremely bright people and remarkably few egos. Even though the team is very large and people are very busy, team members are always willing to help each other out. There is a feeling of positivity in the air that is very refreshing; you can tell that everyone legitimately enjoys their jobs. Management is very receptive to suggestions and is constantly coming up with new perks to keep employees happy (free on-site massages, an arcade, a yoga room, and quite a bit more). There is an emphasis on continual learning and skills improvement which benefits both the employee and the company.

    The work life balance is pretty good. There are crunches and late nights on occasion, but it's never for an extended period of time and you can almost always see it coming and plan for it.

    Cons

    Processes change very quickly as the company deals with its aggressive growth. Depending on your outlook this is either exciting or frustrating.

    Working remotely can be tough in such a quickly growing company; it is hard to know everyone, you really have to reach out.

    Pros

    Everyone I work with (remotely or in person) is dependable and smart. As a salesperson, I never hesitate to bring my colleagues and managers into my sales processes because I know that they will always add value. Unlimited vaca time and free healthcare are pretty great perks.

    Cons

    Technology is always changing and the company is growing fast! In an atmosphere that always feels like a start up, you have to be nimble.

    Pros

    We practice what we preach. We use the software that we sell to engage the employees we have. It is a place where I work hard and I can see it affect the overall business. Cornerstone has provided me with all the tools that I need to develop and push my career forward. They also provide tons of benefits and as well as a great work environment.

    Cons

    Some challenges are with growth. As the company grows quickly you must be able to adapt and change how you do things on the fly. Just be ready to adapt and you will succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some vision into career pathing would be nice. I know that they are currently working on this now though.

    Pros

    Cornerstone has a great culture that promotes work from home and flexibility for a work life balance. Many companies say this and then when you want or need to take off, they make you feel guilty about it. Cornerstone does not as they understand that todays worker does not work a standard 8:00 to 5:00 anymore. As to the training, it is great as we use our own software internally. The compensation is very competitive to the market place

    Cons

    The biggest challenge I face as someone in sales is positioning our service offering and implementation pricing to smaller companies. It is not competitive with the industry and is a limiter in winning some deals. If Cornerstone would be more flexible on the one-time implementation, we would not have to discount our recurring subscription software so much to stay competitive. This would mean more recurring revenue for Cornerstone. This is a small tweak, but the only Con that I see working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay engaged with employees and consider making changes to pricing for Major's space.
