Okay place to start, but overall not very good.

I have been working at MicroStrategy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great People and culture. The people are what makes working here bearable. The location is also pretty good with one of the best buildings in Tyson's.

Cons

The compensation is pretty abysmal. Probably a good 10-30% below market.
The majority of compensation goes to the multimillion dollar salary of the executive level employees and their expenses. The executive team has their own chef and free beverages.

The growth in the company is stagnant. Loyal Microstrategists who have been here between 8-16 years have been leaving the company in droves.

The outlook for the company looks grim.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better. If your compensation is poor, talented and productive employees are going to leave the company for better compensation and recognition. All you will be left with is mediocre employees that are willing to accept the "MicroSalary".

    Pros

    Product is incredibly high quality
    Great place for recent college grads or others looking to get certain experience on their resumes and then move on
    Pay is competitive
    Despite offices being spread across the world, they do a good job of keeping everyone in touch
    Work your 40 hours, collect your paycheck, go home
    Very generous PTO policy

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss
    Easy to get lost in the shuffle. The company is huge.
    Development and release process of the software feels like it has not changed since the dot com era
    Periods of crushing boredom with intermittent moments of blind panic
    Generic corporate culture. The epitome of a cube farm.
    CEO seems legitimately unstable at times.
    Company meetings feel like sitting through indoctrination for a cult. It'd be easier to drink the kool aid if the company either did some good for the world or made corporate culture more of a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix broken processes.
