Pros

Super smart people, meaningful and exciting work, entertaining workplace. I could not have asked for a better summer internship. My work was challenging but well-scoped, and received visibility up through the CTO.

Cons

The company as a whole isn't as engineering-focused as I'd like

    Pros

    Exciting market space with leadership position, high growth potential
    Our customers love our products and look for more opportunities to leverage the platform
    Salesforce Foundation 1:1:1, Charity Donation Matching, Employee Perks - fantastic
    Onboarding process is really well done. Probably due to the sheer number of new hire bootcamps!

    Cons

    Territory carving is a mess.
    Veterans have the lions share of accounts- install and whitespace yet all AEs have the same quota.
    Small percentage of AEs actually make OTE....if you do then you're in Club! I'd rather have a real shot at hitting OTE!!
    Multiyear bookings result in a higher quota the following year that actually negates any increase in year 1 compensation...why? where's the incentive

    Advice to Management

    Level the playing field acoss the team. You've hired senior people so give the newer people a fighting chance.
    Align the assignments and quotas so there's more than 10% making quota.
    Club should require more than hitting OTE
