    Advice to Management

    Strive towards creating an originazation with independent checks and balances at all levels of the hierarchy and give everyone who needs or wants a voice an oppotunity to be heard and respected. Establish well thought out HR policy and require sexual harrasment and tolerance training for everyone. Engage in creating an environment that makes everyone feel welcome and appreciated.

    Pros

    The hiring process was quick and painless. I was impressed by the interviewers' questions and explanations. Knowing nothing about Domo products coming into the interviews, I left wanting to not only be a customer, but be a part of something this amazing.

    Cons

    The workspaces are tight, but this is to be expected of a fast growing company. They've given me all the necessary equipment (multiple monitors, etc) to get my job done and I suspect (purely speculation) that Domo will eventually expand it's real estate footprint.

    Pros

    This place is on fire, in the cutting edge of business mgmt. tools, and things are really heating up. PERFECT time to get involved

    Cons

    I'm just starting, but as a new guy, it's clearly not a good place for anyone who isn't quick on their feet, and excited to tackle a challenge and move really quickly.

    Pros

    Domo is a great place to work. They are a company who actually cares about their employees and they make sure that you know it. Even before you start they make you feel welcome by sending you a very nice gift basket. Domo also has the best benefits package Ive seen or heard of that even rivals the best companies in Silicon Valley. With a fully stocked break room and catered lunch and dinner daily be expected to pack on a few pounds unless you're taking advantage of their free gym membership. Domo also cares about its employees families with a very generous maternity/paternity leave as well as a new baby bonus too boot. They take only the best of the best and thats definitely reflected in their leadership and ongoing training to make sure they are the best company ever. Their motto is "Work hard, play harder" and they aren't kidding about playing harder.

    Cons

    They also aren't kidding about working hard either. In order to be the great company they have become, they push their employees very hard to be better and better so if you're wanting a easy going, fly under the radar kind of job this is not the company for you. That being said, you will only be your absolute best at Domo and it will pay off on your paycheck and help you further your career. The only other challenge with Domo is that when you are growing rocket fast as a company you are going to be changing constantly so be ready to adapt and think quick on your feet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Its been working out great so far.

    Pros

    Ever since I started it's been the ride of a life time! I have been given a lot of free license to test and try new ideas and whether successful or not so much the feedback has always been on point and motivational. Domo trusts their employees to perform, they will give you space to succeed and they let you know when you do. Domo's culture is unique and well balanced. Everyone enjoys working together and you really feel like a part of the team upon arrival.
    The Benefits here are incredible which makes your base salary go along way. Domo definitely does require a lot of dedication and hard work, the work life is very fast paced. If you are willing to keep up than you will love it and you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Domo is not for lazy people

    Pros

    Free food, decent compensation, free iPad, good benefits for Utah Market (paternity, maternity, kid bonus, HSA)

    Cons

    Poisonous, cult-like culture. No tolerance for pointing out flaws in process, suggesting room for improvement, etc. And HR soliciting hand-picked employees to submit positive Glassdoor reviews -- a level of insecurity hard to fathom.

    Advice to Management

    For a product based on transparency through data, the culture is anything but. Did I mention fake Glassdoor reviews?

    Pros

    Most things the HR department does are great - the benefits (great PTO, insurance, gym membership, etc.), the perks (every meal is provided, snacks, drinks, frequent parties for families) and more.

    It's a casual dress environment.

    Cons

    Sales department is coddled (definition of coddled - to treat in an indulgent or overprotective way). They are praised for any little thing they do and they in turn walk around the office acting like they own it.

    Everyone treats the CEO, Josh James, like he is a god (yes, he is smart and he is successful, but have some self respect people). They suck up to him a lot. The CEO also acts like he is still in college, but if you're successful, I guess you can act however you want.

    They do not promote from within. They consistently hire outside talent while passing over longtime employees. (Look at other reviews to validate this point.)

    Many of the staff and executive team worked together at Omniture. If you did not work at Omniture, you are not part of the "it crowd." Former Omniture employees stick together promoting each other and ignoring those who did not work there. They are continually snatching former Omniture employees from Adobe (Adobe bought Omniture) and promoting them.

    Multiple employees are at Domo simply because they are related to the CEO or are family friends. There are more qualified individuals who could outperform these employees, but family and friends get preferential treatment (and get promotions and bonuses).

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Free food is great and management knows how to leverage this by keeping you working and not leaving the building.

    Cons

    Very little movement within the organization. You will only move if you have friends in the right place.

    Advice to Management

    Look more to hire within. Have new employees start as an ADS and move up from their depending on productivity.
