I worked at Model N full-time for more than a year

Pros

Recognition of ideas and thought, ability to work closely with Product and Professional services teams, good team collaboration, culture was close knit until the IPO and now there's no culture

Cons

Poor Strategic Management, Company tried to change culture by hiring folks from Consulting industry but never paid attention to the dramatic cultural shift that happened. Processes changed from normal to over-engineering making it difficult to get work done. Company hired too many higher level folks in Management who do not know anything about the product, resulting in a deadly spiral, competition has heated up and Customers are not happy because of pushy company management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of all the fat at the top of the organization, reduce the # of levels in the company, make it more flat. Software companies should have more engineers and less managers, let creativity thrive and do not stop innovating.

    I worked at Model N for more than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunity for those beginning their career. The engineering and product teams are fairly strong. The culture is okay but not great. Get ready to work with India all hours of the night.

    Cons

    Company has been around for a long time and the culture and products reflect this. A lot of people have been here for many years and are too comfortable. The products are not that impressive - technology is relatively old. The markets are limited. It's more of a services company than a products company.
