    Pros

    Perfect for hyper-smart kids straight out of college.

    Cons

    The Model N technology stack is formidable...on par with SAP. Plan on spending a year learning the product.

    Advice to Management

    It's not about the money, it's about the people. Bringing in new exec's that had nothing to do with bringing the company public and allowing them carte blanche is a major blunder. Keeping good people once you've trained them should be a higher priority.

    Pros

    The leadership team is committed to take the company to the next level and is moving in the right direction You will work with lots of smart and good people. There is ample growth opportunities. Sales team is pitching up and we are seeing lots of new and exciting projects

    Cons

    You constantly have to showcase to the management that you are doing great work. You will work with lot of smart people, so you will have to struggle initially to get going.

    Pros

    Mostly a great team, addressing a LifeSciences only target market. Surrounded by super-smart people, who understand the industry, and came from the vertical they serve.

    Cons

    Senior Mgmt needs to understand which direction is most important for the company....cloud or on-premise, or both. Product UX very outdated, with competition ahead on both UX and time-to-live.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your hardened, experienced sales team and deploy sales techniques that aren't 5 - years behind the times.

    Pros

    Good to work there when you are specialized in Enterprise Software technologies such as Salesforce.com. It's apparently a great place to learn about the US healthcare system. It is an ok place for a beginneer engineer who wants to learn about the enterprise software and software consulting world.

    Cons

    Most employees have a "can do" attitude but often lack perspective on how things can work in the rest of the industry - and hence usually have poor performance while being convinced of the opposite. I had the feeling that most employees - except the few "heroes" - were totally scared of middle and senior management - no one wanted to make decisions or feel accountable for anything.

    Pros

    CEO Zack Rinat makes a point to speak with the entire company and is someone you want to work hard for. Senior management is supportive. Willing to do what they can for their employees

    Cons

    Company is growing so fast and the G&A area isn't keeping up with the growth in the sales force.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes need to spend money to make money. Would recommend considering increasing budget for more G&A staff to keep up with growing sales force.

    Horrible waste of potential

    I worked at Model N

    Pros

    Relatively nice co-workers. Friday catered lunches...nothing much else

    Cons

    Oh where to start...horrible upper management, check. Below market values when it comes to salary, check. Stable cubicles with stale carpet, check. Work process that creates chaos and confusion, check AND check. Initially saw the potential of this company, but that was only the honeymoon phase. In short order did I see everything crumble. From the turn-over rate to the horrendous process, saw it all. Lost my sanity quickly. Stay away!

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, because is that only way to shake up the company enough to make a difference

    Complex product with outstanding customer relationship Great cash flow management

    Pros

    Smart and charismatic CEO (his execs though seem not to respect him behind his back). Some good people (but not at senior levels Professional employees for the most part. Friday lunches /calls at HDQ.

    Cons

    Lousy senior management. Highly political even at the relatively junior level/mid level. Lousy products. Most have a DIY feel. Work life balance is non-existent and mundane/lousy tasks in plenty. Very long hours each day and most week-ends with management not even showing appreciation (i.e. it is expected). Sales: poor; (on the bright side this means customers are possibly too smart to get fooled.) Poor delivery. State of flux. Recently a few senior level people (sr. Director and above) left the company despite having just been promoted. Facade: pro-people but reality is way different.

    Advice to Management

    Stop producing vaporware. Make real products. Face the reality of your political environment, reward collegiality. Get rid of current senior management.

    Pros

    Pros: - No micromanagement - Quick growth in roles if you're willing to work hard - Smart people to work with. Generally, everyone is a pleasure to work with. - Good managers within GCS with people who really understand the product and the industry. - Catered lunches on Friday. - Opportunity to work across multiple teams. - Yoga available for those at HQ. - Ping pong tournaments. - Most people are interested in the betterment of the company and the products. - Interesting niche that opens the door to the Life Sciences industry. - Every project is different, so you are constantly learning. - Upbeat pace. - Willingness to create programs/plans to keep people happy.

    Cons

    Cons: - Salary needs to be fought for. - Architecture of the product needs to be looked at and improved upon to improve product quality. - Not enough activities to build happy employees and team comradery. - Difficult to work with an offshore PD team in India. People based out of the stateside tends to sacrifice more time than India. - Benefits are okay. Coverage could be much better for a company in the tech sector of Silicon Valley. - No 401k matching. - Need to constantly fight for work life balance, otherwise management will just over work you. - Needs more technical innovation and investment into technical innovation. - Cheap on handing out shares to employees outside of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees within professional services. They are the ones that constantly interact with your customers. - Your employees at the end of the day need to be kept happy if you expect to see results. No one appreciates having to work long hours and yet never get recognized for it. Benefits, compensation, and a career path needs to be improved upon in order to retain and gain employees. - Improve on product quality. There seems to be a huge disconnect between the people building the product and the people actually delivering it.
