Very stressful environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cary, NC

ProsLots of great talent and enthusiasm. It operates like a 12 year old startup. Free softdrinks and employee perks like fitness club reimbursement. People work hard.

ConsCEO uses foul language as a motivational tool. It can be stressfull and unconfortable to be in his presence. It inhibits staff from expressing good ideas.
No opportunity to advance before Director level. Only hire from outside for VP positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop focusing on quarter to quarter. Culture is not supporting of risk taking or giving people the benefit of the doubt.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: sciQuest is a relatively well run and disciplined company. They put an emphasis on repeatable processes and… Cons: I think their operational strategy shifted focused somewhat since the company went public. They seem to be going away… Advice to Senior Management: There's an overall lack of accomplished leadership at the manager… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
