I worked at New Relic full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Smart, talented co-workers. Incredible office spaces designed for the communities and team members they serve. Pre-IPO. CEO Lew Cirne and VP of Engineering Bjorn Freeman-Benson.

Cons

Empire building runs rampant, especially on non-technical teams. Say they put customers and employees first, then make decisions that go in the opposite direction. Without a senior manager's support, you'll be left to fend for yourself. Brogrammer culture throughout the organization, worse on business side.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more. Encourage managers to promote corporate values as stated by exec and HR team. Look back and reconsider the loss of talent you've experienced recently.

    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
