Good place to work

Senior Consultant (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsI worked here for a few years and it was a great place to start my career. I learned and developed a lot of best practices that I will continue to use. Even now, working at another company, it is surprising how effective the agile practices are and how much respect I get from applying them when most employees don't. For example, Thycotic really teaches you not only how to test your code well, but also how important testing it really is.

- Opportunities are there to advance your career
- Good health benefits
- Coworkers are fun to be around
- Good processes mean that the environment is extremely low-stress, but things still get done pretty fast
- Lots of learning opportunities

ConsCareer advancement opportunities are more push than pull. If you want to get promoted, want a big raise, or want to have more responsibilities, it is up to you to bring it up to management.

Advice to Senior ManagementActively engage with employees to help advance their career. Don't wait for them to come to you. To attract more employees, I suggest having more of a "start-up" vibe. Some ideas might be to eliminate timesheets and have more lenient hours (i.e., 11 am standup). To remain competitive with startups and larger tech companies, and to keep employees highly motivated, look into stock options or, more feasibly, profit sharing.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Thanks for the great review.

We do check in with all staff every 6 months from a career perspective during goals review - some speak up and want more responsibility, others don't. Moving up

    Although the overall experience was a net-positive, I disliked working at Thycotic Software.

    I worked at Thycotic full-time for more than a year


    Pros: I liked most of my coworkers and felt they supported me. It is nice working… Cons: I disliked the leadership and felt there was a high level of unrealistic expectation across the board. If you were a yes-person, you get… Advice to Senior Management: Being a small company, either hire outside consulting for general HR/operational management or hire a full time office… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
