Pros

Smart people
Excellent Product
Great Locations
Decent Leadership Team

Cons

Interview process was among the worst. No communication from HR. Poor follow up
Lack respect by HR department for people interviewing
Average or below average salaries
Poor Bonus Structure
Salaries are not competitive
Lack of 401K match
Stock Option Packages lack equality, and below market.
Stock Options not a reason to work here - For a pre-IPO company, stock option allocations for new employees are very small and non-competitive
Company does not deliver on it's primises

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more competitive with the market. 401K match is over due. Salaries are becoming less competitive. Other start ups are more attractive.
People Ops is a problem. Look into it.

    Pros

    Employees are empowered to utilize their full potential. Culture of collaboration and teamwork. Everywhere you turn there are thought leaders, brilliant minds, accomplished technologists, absent of arrogance and entitlement.
    Family friendly work environment.
    The company has grown from a handful of employees to over 300 without the disruption of major engineering re-organization or significant injection of outside managers or celebrity executives.
    The executive leadership is honest and open, and the values place the employees as a top priority.

    Cons

    No catered lunches.
    Constantly evolving, things move fast, organization is very fluid. You have to adapt.

    Pros

    New Relic has a great office in an amazing location. A good majority of the frontline folks are very hard working and genuinely want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    On the surface it appears the executive team genuinely cares about their people but actions prove otherwise. Many times decision are made in favor of the inner circle. Sales policy is completely avoided in favor of people they like. Despite hard work and over achievement you may not get recognized and or compensated, the compensation structure is very subjective and not based on good data.

    The equity they distribute is very disappointing so when they discuss going public, its only relevant to the executives, no one else. There is a lot more companies handing out far greater equity with as good if not better upside.

    Oh and BTW, they wont reimburse cell phones despite having used mine many times to ensure deal kept moving or closed at night or over the weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Don't be so disconnected from the business. You need more than a good product to be successful in today's market.
