    Pros

    Great career development and career path options. Dynamic, exciting work environment. Solid leadership who communicates frequently and effectively. Great people to work with. Excellent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Most managers are great. Some, however are not! Your team will only be as good as it's leadership...

    Advice to Management

    Encourage managers to frequently reach out to their employees and to put emphasis on being a coach and not a task-master...the results will be far greater!

    Pros

    Well developed tools and training. Internal movement to most fields

    Cons

    Hard to promote to manager or higher level positions. Pay doesn't scale at the same rate as outside hires

    Advice to Management

    Reward your current employees or they will find other employment. Rather than hiring for more from the outside provide raises/promotions

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits and competitive salary. Agile environment that is always moving. Boomi employees are dedicated to improving customer experience.

    Cons

    Integrating into Dell has proven difficult and sluggish. Some of the key players that started Boomi and developed it into a great place to work have left and left a gap.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in programs and activities to improve customer experience. For SaaS, support and customer success should not be considered a cost center.
