Interesting technology, terrible work environment, very weak senior management

Account Executive (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsThe technology is very interesting
Company founders continue to invest large sums into R&D
Financial results reflect a wide market acceptance for product offerings
Little to no real competition

ConsVery poor work environment
Account management is ... just bring me the deals no matter what territory or product line
Account management is ... Do your five visits a week and 2 proposals and you are a good AE otherwise expect to be openly harrassed in front of sales team during weekly sales calls
If you enjoy micro-management then this is the place to work

Advice to Senior ManagementStrategies that worked so well at the start-up phase are no longer applicable as a global software player. Company can be doing 5x more revenue if current Senior Management is replaced by capable professionals that know from experience how to run a global software company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
