    I have been working at MicroStrategy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Microstrategy is working in two very hot industries (enterprise analytics and security). I am seeing lots of really great change in the company and that is paying off for company and employees. Company recently went from annual to quarterly bonus, as an example of more directly connecting contribution to employee benefit.

    Cons

    Sometime traffic can be a issue getting in and out of office around Christmas time, but have seen decrease in issues over last 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Microstrategy had a really good team of employees. Keep doing events like the company all-hands, company picnic, as well as smaller departmental events to continue to connect the team together.

    Pros

    People are top notch in Professional Services! Very bright associates to work. Nice investment of training for all employees. Salary is good and competitive.

    Cons

    The approval process could be slightly quicker. The recruitment process was very long but that is also a good trait because they only pick higher quality individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Love this company!!! Keep up the GOOD work!!

    + Overall, the people are very smart, motivated, and friendly + HQ has nice amenities like gym and lounge + Good opportunities for personal growth

    Hold more corporate events to share ideas about company direction and strategy (maybe even a town-hall-esque forum?)

    Pros

    Innovative environment and great team

    Cons

    In my position I would love to move away form excel, unfortunately due to the fact that we do not have enough systematization/ atomization to support our daily work projects are difficult to complete.

    Advice to Management

    Would love management to invest more to support internal administration and activities. Unfortunately today this is not possible. Salaries need to be competitive with the market place
