Had some bumps, but still a great place to work,

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

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

ProsLot of resources in terms of money, expertise, and support.
Good managers and good work-life balance (at least here in the Boston office).
Good opportunities for learning and advancing one's career.
Recently had some layoffs, making the company more lean and efficient.

ConsA little bit disconnected from HQ office in CA.
Incentive structure is a little flat (ie. not much reward for those putting in extra effort).

Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to address the "cons" listed above.

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

Product Developement department is more or less driven by Services Dept because of lack of strong Management

Manager-Product Development (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at Model N full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Company to learn and grow faster
Very flexible for employees
Very Transparent organization

ConsPD should have its own agenda, priorities, processes to handle releases. IT should not always be revolving around customer and services as it is a R&D division rather than a billable Team.
