Pros

It's a very innovative, modern workplace filled with brilliant people. Medallia really strives to hire only the best people, and it shows - plus, they take extremely good care of their employees. Best of all, the company is in an explosive growth phase and will soon go IPO. I couldn't even think of a better company to work at in this point in time.

Cons

My only complaint would be the managers at this company - most of them have at best amateur managerial skills. In a way it can be convenient because bosses let you do your thing without much pressure or oversight, but on the other hand there's kind of a lack of guidance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start training the squad leaders to be real managers. And stop promoting people to squad leaders just because they're good at what they do - it doesn't mean they're good leaders or bosses.

    I worked at Medallia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The general idea behind the company is great.

    Cons

    However, executive management is obsessed with accolade from top management schools which doesn't gel with engineering culture. Innovative and entrepreneurial people leave the company because there's no achievement beyond the initial market traction. Working hard for a promotion does not longer work, your next boss will be recruited from outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Get people with experience in leadership position - especially engineering.
    2. Restructure product teams around people with vision.
    3. Build attractive career paths for people.
    4. Establish better culture in engineering to stop the most talented from leaving.
