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

Pros

Great people, great little perks, great officespace

Cons

growing way to fast, firing people left and right for not hitting quota when quota's are becoming less and less attainable. no 401k and stock option strike price is ridiculous, barely even worth having them. What was once a super fun work place is now just a bunch of people running around stressed out 24/7

Advice to ManagementAdvice

take a step back and realize you're ruining what was once a great thing

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Good group of coworkers overall

    Cons

    Horrible health benefit options
    No 410k
    Good Old Boy system in upper management
    Not female friendly - saw one management level female have items thrown at her from an irate boss. Another was harassed by her coworker that worked next to her all day long with no action by HR. Goo talent left the company instead of put up with the hostile environment. When named one of the hottest companies in the Bay Area the comment thread was dominated by discussion of the un-friendly female atmosphere and eventually taken down (probably by the company's request). Would not want my sister or any of my female friends to work here.

    This post largely inconsistent with what we are hearing from employees, and is simply wrong in a couple of respects.

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

    Pros

    + solid core product
    + solid benefits
    + high quality technical team
    + executive team has earned the company's respect
    + technical culture of excellence (focused on quality, process)

    Cons

    - poor engineering management
    - very rapidly growing bureaucracy
    - short-sighted attitude towards career development
    - stated values and actual expectations frequently at odds
    - growing to meet the expectations of an IPO instead of the market
    - overly aggressive expectations for sales
    - poor coordination between offices
    - product management is losing focus as number of products grows
    - quality of new hires is dropping in rush to grow
