    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has incredible momentum and energy. Everyone here seems to really enjoy working here, works hard, and it is a fun culture. Companies that include personal success and customer success as a core value of the company are few and far between and Coupa lives that value system.

    The company also moves very quickly. Come in with ideas and be ready to execute. But opportunity abounds.

    Cons

    Would love a few more employee perks like lunches, healthy snacks, standup desks and some things that some other less interesting companies have but that is nitpicking.

    Pros

    This is a fantastic company and Coupa is only getting started. The "Savings-as-a-Service" market is Coupa's to win.

    The reasons I joined the company are simple:

    1. The CEO is an extremely passionate, driven and is laser focused on customers and their success! Our CEO is down to earth and leads the company on the premise of three "core" values - customer success, results and excellence. Many leaders talk about values, but he actually practices them day-to-day.

    2. The people I work with are extremely smart and are all rowing in the same direction. We also have a lot of fun.

    3. I have an interesting and challenging role and I clearly understand how my success contributes to the success of the organization and company overall. How many employees can say that?

    4. I am proud to be part of a company where we provide real value for our customers - 450+ and growing each day.

    5. My immediate manager. We hit it off during the interview process through mutual respect. He understands what I can do for Coupa and I believe, is committed to my long term success.

    Cons

    There's nothing material - it's all good!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring great talent and don't let Coupa's rapid growth change the company or it's values.

    Pros

    I look forward to starting the day consistently.
    Friendly people with great experience.
    No backstabbing or territory stuff to deal with.
    Super product and amazing focus on customers.

    Cons

    Keep the focus on the values and innovation. Keep focused on attracting and keeping the best people. OK to churn folks if they don't work out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture is off the charts. Keep it that way.

    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is almost a fully optimised company. It operates more fully, more nimbly, and also more productively than companies 10x the size. It is not a culture of long emails or CYA - just the opposite. The company is also very international for being so young.

    Approximately 20% of the revenues already come from Europe, a key growth area for Coupa. The European team is particularly mature, capable, and tight-knit. It operates very well as a team and has a great track record of winning business against much larger companies/teams (e.g. Oracle, SAP, Ariba).

    Cons

    Maintaining the pace - it definitely isn't for everyone. Only people that want to experience and contribute to meaningful and visible change need apply. People that don't measure up or aren't a good cultural fit don't tend to stay long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the throttle on. This is already the fastest-growing company in this market space, and the only one that is making a difference. Don't get complacent, this is a chance to build something special and the undisputed leader in the market.

    I have been working at Coupa Software Inc full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I work as an Account Development Rep (inside sales) and I am now in my fourth month with Coupa. During the interview stages I was in the final selection process for Microsoft as a field based rep for SME's and the choice to join Coupa, in all honesty, was a no-brainer. Once you get talking to the employees and management of Coupa, you immediately realize the determination and intelligence that is consistently running through the company. The pros:

     - Undisputed leaders within the market as determined by both Forrester and Gartner
     - Office Politics is non-existent and replaced with a constant focus on support and transparancy in reaching success
     - Open forum, regardless of your position within the company your opinions do matter and you are valued
     - Great salary with achievable targets
     - Consistent support and advice
     - There is very much a 'Team' ethos globally with weekly meetings inclusive of senior execs
     - Bootcamp as initial training in San Francisco - California is always a great backdrop to any situation!
     - No micro-management
     - Intelligent and professional peers, many with a wealth of experience to draw upon
     - Customer centric
     - Fast paced and focused
     - Growth expansion is immense with new hires, product development, and more global reach on a daily basis

    Cons

    I haven't uncovered any cons as yet, however the interview process can be lengthy - but I'm convinced this is to ensure they hire the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company is expanding rapidly please do try to keep the same culture of inclusion of everybody and the regular insights from the various sectors within the company.

    Pros

    If you get on board with the culture, vision, and are 110% committed to the core values, you will be very successful at Coupa! It's all about teamwork to ensure our customers' success!

    Cons

    Moves very fast! If you're not up for constant change/improvements, Coupa may not be for you. I have never seen such an agile and forward-thinking company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and keep investing in your people!

    Pros

    The company has allowed me to grow and people are encouraged to grow and develop here which is different from other start ups that I have been apart of.

    Cons

    We are growing very rapidly, and we have some of the growing pains of associated with being a bigger company as it relates to resources, training etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep trying to promote the small company feel, encourage personal growth and development, and actively seek out those that are building a better product, environment and or customer base.
