    Pros

    This is a place where grown ups work and trust others to execute.

    Cons

    Due to all the new growth we need more room to expand further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it rocking and find more room.

    I worked at Domo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The product vision is awesome. I completely believe in it and wish I could have the product at my current job.

    I truly enjoyed working with and have deep respect for many of the other people in the trenches with whom I worked.

    There is also tons of free food. I lost some weight after I left.

    Cons

    It's the strangest culture I've ever seen. It starts with lots of hero worship and ends with lots of sycophants. It's style over substance. Tweeting gushing affection for the company and execs is what gets recognized.

    There are lots of chiefs.

    There is high turnover, especially among engineers.

    It's not my style, so I moved on and am really happy now with another opportunity.

    Pros

    The product is really cool and built on really cool ideas.
    Very smart and talented engineers. Most of the engineers here are like the top 10% of other places I've worked.

    Cons

    Sales drives the company and with that comes the typical problems. It makes sense for sales to set direction since they are closest to the customer and doing the selling, however the whole sales organization is highly dysfunctional. It's difficult to get anything done because sales poorly communicates what they want and has unrealistic expectations of when it will be delivered.
    Middle management is lacking in both numbers and talent. Imagine giving a squadron of F-22 jets to a bunch of crop duster pilots and then telling these pilots to fly two jets at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix middle management and keep your engineers happy. There is such potential here and many people are being frustrated because throughput sucks.

    A wild ride. Worked long hours and made a lot of good friends. Exciting possibilities but still a ways to go.

    Pros

    They have assembled a very talented team. Everyone is very engaged and works hard. Plenty of opportunities for skilled workers to succeed.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. The culture seems fun at first but can distract from what is most important. Things were moving so fast that there was no time for career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget about the hype and continue driving real innovation to create a world-class product.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, very generous and growing company.
    Amazing potential and product idea is sound.
    Best talent I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Jam packed with people. It's really hard to find the quiet rooms needed to do serious thinking and thoughtful discussions with smaller groups.

    Workspaces for thought workers are too loud and distractions are too numerous.

    Ego centric, school yard bullying culture.

    Big company feel, too much micro managing and reporting processes--pretends to be a startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up--needs some tweaks and we have a winner.

    Think about the different types of workers and roles and what kind of a work environment will be best for getting real work done for each of those roles.

    Trust the people you've hired--they are amazing. People are afraid to tell management what they really think and so a lot of bad ideas get perpetuated.

    Pros

    The Exec team at Domo knows how valuable hard-working employees are. They expect big things from their team, but they also reward people for their efforts. The company has an awesome culture, and it's a testament to management's emphasis on rewarding and recognizing achievements.

    Cons

    Like any start-up, they're still getting processes and structure figured out. It's not a perfect operation, but everyone understands the vision, and they're all willing to work through the rough edges.

    Pros

    Startup with a ton of potential. Domo has perks of a bigger, established company as far as benefits, funding and executive team, but has a startup feel, culture and pace. Exciting place to work and you can feel the energy.

    Cons

    Typical startup frustrations. You wear a ton of different hats, which is not necessarily a negative--but sometimes prevents momentum in areas you would like to focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job so far. Seem to practice transparency.

    Pros

    Domo is a very exciting place to work. There is a constant drive for innovation which gives Domosapiens endless opportunities to learn and think outside the box. We are encouraged to think bigger and share our ideas. We are surrounded by intelligent, ambitious, and talented colleagues.

    There are also great benefits that make employees feel valued. We get free lunch and dinner and a stocked break room. We have a few very memorable parties a year that give us an opportunity to enjoy each other's creativity and company during holidays.

    My boss is the best person I could work for. Encouraging, supportive, challenges me, and makes sure I know the value I bring to the company.

    Cons

    Domo is moving so quickly that projects oftentimes require us to spend evenings and weekends working. The work/life balance isn't ideal, but expected for a fast moving startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company meetings are awesome. It's always good to know where we are, and where we are headed.

    Pros

    My friends are beginning to hate me because I'm always talking about how great Domo is. Here is just a short list of some of my favorite things about Domo:
    - Free food as far as the eye can see
    - Free iPad
    - Great health benefits
    - Colleagues are highly motivated and very intelligent
    - They treat you like a self sufficient adult
    - The product is incredible and makes it easy to be a believer in what we are doing

    Cons

    I can't think of anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making Domo the best place to work.
