Pros

There are very few good reasons to work at MicroStrategy...the only one being the fact that people can work from home without issues.

Cons

Bottom line, in most every organization in the company, you will get screwed. There is no focus on people at all and HR seems completely absent as senior leaders look for any way to shove a stick up the hind end of their employees. Whether it is abusive treatment, moving targets or just the simple lack of caring about employee health and retention...and HR is invisible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Like others have said, focus on people, do a review and training of senior leaders and find out where the cancer is and get rid of it, regardless of the good old boys networks.

    Pros

    okay for young people who are starting their career.

    Cons

    They show bonus potential as big item in benefits package. Only pay 25-50% unless you are a "favorite". Make sure you stay 2 months into next year to receive it.
    Hard working developers get peanuts.

    Good opportunity to learn about BI, but not necessarily a longterm company when starting with entry level positions.

    Pros

    Great work/personal life balance, most of the time respecting personal time, and compensating for overtime. Pay is decent for job functions.

    Cons

    There is almost null training, whether it is on industry-wide standards and practices or new technologies. Similarly, time dedicated to training is somewhat limited.

    In terms of growth, opportunity is scarce although it is easy to move horizontally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create career paths for employees to develop abilities that help them grow personally in that path. Incentivate, promote and/or pay for training.
