    Pros

    Company meetings are in international locations Products can do some amazing things if pitching to the right audience Not much micro-management (my experience)

    Cons

    Management preaches a big family, yet fires managers at Christmas Parties, or the day before they are to leave for the company trip for a week... very inconsistent. Also the replacements to the fired individuals show up the next day, so it is all planned. Management has no (BI) industry experience except for this company, and it shows. The product was leading edge 5 years ago, and now others have caught up. Qliktech had a chance to be a major player, but it is over now. There was a buzz about an IPO, but who knows when/if that will happen. They claim other competitors being bought is a victory for them, but the reality is they got passed over and now the competition is stronger than ever. There are worse things than being bought or even going under... they are dying a slow death. From a career perspective, knowing Qlikview won't get you far outside of Qliktech. Working for BOBJ/MSTR/Cognos wil provide you with better skills while earning more money. When the end comes for Qliktech, you will wish you'd been someplace else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop living in a fantasy world, where you insist you are doing everything right, yet the sales are a fraction of their competition. The 'fastest growing BI company' every year is NOT good as it shows slow incremental growth. Other BI companies can not have a 50% growth rate because they are already dominating the market. Any suggestion as to how other companies are doing it is met with resistance. You actually promote that the competition is 'failing' when you get a replacement deal, yet that month the leading BI competitors sell 2x more than you will sell for the year. if you keep doing the same things over and over, you will wind up with the same result.


  2. Nice growth, not so nice upper management

    Pros

    High growth, great people, mostly friendly environment. Have a highly differentiated product offering good for midsize companies. Marketing is getting better.

    Cons

    Poor sales management at the top level in the U.S. Hands off approach leads to not knowing what is going on at the critical levels of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and firing Presidents in the U.S. Live the culture you say you have. Seek out employee opinions and listen to them.
