I worked at MicroStrategy

Pros

Have always been leaders in BI
Great work life balance
Smart people especially in technology
Good management
Showing great promise in Mobile and Cloud.
Mike Saylor has shown tremendous leadership through tough times.

Cons

Glass ceiling
Low pay
Inactive human resources department
Narrow definition of BI compared to competitors like SAS which do more with unstructured and semi-structured data. No predictive analytics vision.
Build it yourself approach is sometimes not the best. MicroStrategy has never bought or integrated technologies into its stack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recent forays into Social applications seem confusing. Are you a platform vendor or an applications provider?
Consider buying a few companies to have a broader portfolio of platform solutions in the predictive analytics & unstructured data analysis space.

    Pros

    The company is truly serious about succeeding in the business intelligence area, and
    would expand more in next few years.

    Cons

    The work environment is not like a technology company.
    It's more like a financial firm.
    Do not like that for sure

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed atmosphere to work. Good benefits overall. Probably one of the better companies to work around in the area.

    Cons

    Top down decision making structure can be frustrating. Compensation can be improved. Promotions are tenure based and not so much performance based

    No opinion of CEO
