    I worked at Model N full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Uhmm can't think of much

    Cons

    No planning when delivering to customers

    They promise one thing and then turn it against you once your join - very alienating experience

    Some team members in PS are intimidated with women PMs and delivery leads

    Sometimes you have to be ready to pay your own bill even if it is a company dinner just because you ordered an extra side dish

    I can go on and on

    Pros

    Great pay & OK benefits. Diverse culture.

    Cons

    Terrible management team here. Very high turnaround. My manager left after I was hired maybe was a sign for me. New manager frowns upon me if I work from home 1 day a week. Everyone is allowed to work from one once a week. Very anal and keeps a close eye on me. I am a professional and deliver projects on time. Manager is very intimidating and upper management does not care. I have started looking around elsewhere. Used to be nice and fun environment to work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up a bit. You guys are letting good talent get away!

    The company stresses on-time product release with very little planning.

    Pros

    Weekly lunches and company meetings. Decent gym nearby.

    Cons

    Leadership was nonexistent. Supposedly followed Agile practices but product owners weren't often available and scrum masters weren't properly trained.

    I worked at Model N full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work culture, Scope to try out new ideas with in the old framework of their own. Better package for the fresher graduates compared to many others in Hyderabad.

    Cons

    No scope to introduce new technologies as the product is deeply coupled with their own framework. Not so good salary packages for the lateral joiners and no transparent pay check details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technically, Try to introduce new technologies like Hadoop which is very essential in the customer environments to analyse their own data in many ways. Try to change the front end to incorporate HTML5 and try removing flex. Similarly, in the back end, evaluate introducing hibernate.

    On Management side, Be transparent in the package structure, bonus and stock options. Try to balance the package for freshers and laterals. There are instances in which, a four experienced drawing less than a fresher.

    Pros

    Smart and talented employees with can do attitude. employees get to know company financials on quarterly basis which gives good insight into future growth, recognized as leader in Revenue Management, now offering Revenue Management Could Solutions. Impressive future road-map. Bonus, RSUs and ESPP program which are apart from the guaranteed salary.

    Cons

    Give opportunities to internal talent for next level positions rather than hiring laterally. Invent in building technical documentation for easy on-boarding of new hires.

    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.
