I have been working at MicroStrategy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Generous time off, fun culture, good people to work with. The kind of place that pays you 20% less than competitors, but you still stick around because you're otherwise so comfortable. Very easy to come back to, hires lots of retreads that left (on good terms) at least 2 years ago at at least a 20% bump.

Cons

Low compensation for long time employees vs recent hires & reluctance to exceed 5% annual raises to correct this; instead of bumping a 5 year person making 100K to 110K, they would rather hire someone with only 2 years experience from outside for 120K.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to allow more time for training; MSTR used to be excellent for this 5 years back & before, but since 2007ish focus has been to keep people billable almost 100% so new people don't get a chance to go to boot camp & existing employees have to train on their own time after hours.

    Pros

    Love the way CEO and senior management is focused on customer success and particulary CEO doing a very good job of communicating his vision.

    Cons

    It would be ideal to have more communication about product strategy internally.
