    I have been working at Model N full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are the asset of the company with strong executive team members. Flexible work hours for a work-life balance. Emphasis on the company core values and abiding by them. Has a long-term vision with corresponding short-term goals. We went through the worst times and I feel it is even stronger now.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will feel, you are not part of the decision making process. We build great Products, but sometimes I feel there is lack of long term vision for some of those Product. Management advocacy for off-hour working versus finishing it within working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BETTER PLANNING. I feel there is a sense of urgency for everything we want to do. With better planning, we can deliver much more great Products and perhaps deliver more than what we do today, which I think is bit stressful.

    I worked at Model N full-time

    Pros

    Good Technology, Good understanding of the market and economy. Lots of good passionate people. On the face of it good "incentives" for employees. Work from home was possible.

    Cons

    Very top-down management, seemingly open, but not really. Approachable, but not open.
    Hints of nepotism/favoritism.
    There seemed to be so many things they do for employee morale, except should anybody actually use it, they might be docked for it, if you are not in the management's good graces, that is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would worry about the attrition, and find out what makes so many people leave what seems like a great company!

    Many times due to faster turnaround time, team needs to work in start up mode, which is fun but at the same time stressful..

    I have been working at Model N full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are the great, more than willing to offer help and support.
    Very open about how the Company is doing - both good and bad.
    Has a very good training program.

    Cons

    Work- life quality balance is an ongoing battle. "Whatever it takes to get the job done"
    Too many Chiefs that tend to micro manage
    No administrative support within the Teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out why so many people are leaving the Company, especially long term employees.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you want to learn and increase the slope of your learning curve, Model N is the place to go. Neither too small, nor too big, just the right size so that you get the benefit of working in a startup type environment without the risk of losing it all. Very entrepreneurial culture, you will never be short of challenging work. Not a place for slackers.

    Cons

    Be ready to give it all, very demanding and challenging and you get recognized by what you deliver, not by your title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should spend more time with team members.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. As a full-time employee, the company has subsidized for a free membership at the gym located at Pacific Shores.

    Cons

    I hate the commute and there are no sick leave policy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a chance to work from home at least for one-day in a week.

    I have been working at Model N full-time

    Pros

    It's very much an open door policy. Employees at all levels can reach out to the Executives at any time. There is also a company meeting along with the free lunch every Friday. Therefore, everyone is very much in sync on what's going on in the company. I find this approach to be a huge plus for new hires (myself included).

    Cons

    The company just moved to a prime location in Redwood City, CA. Depending on what time you come to the office, traffic could be a challenge at times. It would be better if the employees could work from home every now and then.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think the employees are fairly satisfied here with the direction of the company and the Executive Team. The company just needs to re-evaluate work-life balance; especially on how to work workaround the traffic jams.
