    I have been working at Model N full-time

    Pros

    Good team environment
    Friday free lunch
    High tech (development team) department was good, but it's not there in US anymore.

    Cons

    The annual performance review sucks! The raise in no where near market standards
    The higher management really sucks. Due to the fault of Sales team there was huge lay off with no hints about it until the it was done.
    They use old technologies.
    They don't have good strategy for new products. They don't have proper direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good sales people and do keep in mind about people's livelihood.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance with opportunity to work from home when neccesary
    Fully stocked Kitchen and weekly catered lunch
    Company outings - dinners, cookouts, annual clambake
    Reimbursement for healthcare opt-out (great bonus if your spouse has coverage)
    Quiet office - good for heads down working

    Cons

    Quiet office - there is no buzz of creativity in the air
    Meetings often scheduled on west coast time (during our lunch/dinner)
    Aggressive release cycles often lead to poor quality
    No visibility into company health - 6 months after celebrating an IPO, 25% of the company was sent to pack up their desks.
    Inflated company goals ensure bonuses don't have to be paid out.

    I worked at Model N full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mostly a great team with 'can do' attitude. Trying to satisfy customers in very hard markets by making up significant shortcomings in the product with services

    Cons

    Opaque decision making process which is not data driven and with no discernible method. People do not count in the services organization. Strange, as people are what this is all about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real about the products and pay attention to what your team is telling you

    Pros

    Lot 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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    Base Pay is good comparatively
    Some remote working potential

    Cons

    Expected to work technically 24/7
    Have to travel to unexpected client locations.
    Poor Product Development
    No sustained growth of the company unless another Big Pharma buys their product
    Bonus is not based on factors that employees control
    Horrible Work life balance with expectation to work 90% of weekends in a year
    There are a bunch of Uptight, stuck up individuals in Middle Management who will run this company to the grave. (However they do have fancy titles - Director, Associate Director, Associate Assistant Director, Jr. Associate Director). Except for a few Technical resources, everyone is a Director

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your product and fire the "middle Management' idiots

    Pros

    Some good people work at the company.

    Cons

    Management tries hard to improve the company, which is good. However, they don't seem to understand what the problems are which says a lot about understanding the challenges of the company. Employees are treated poorly and large portion of bonuses are based on factors that employees can't control. Company has a core set of values they love to emphasize but they don't follow them or hire people that fit the core values. Turnover is so high you're constantly re- creating processes or spending huge amount of time training/ teaching.

    Broken Engineering Organization

    Pros

    Profitable Company. Will sometimes adopt new tech.

    Cons

    The build system is broken. The is little QA Automation. There is absolutely no Modularity. No attention is paid to best practices. The Platform team is too small to properly support a company of this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accepting of input. Senior management tends to adopt a strategy without seeking any input and then refuses to discuss even minor changes. They are happy to bring in outside consultants to advise the company, but they then either ignore the consultants input or in some cases have even become hostile when the consultant offers an opinion that conflicts with what they have already decided to do.

    Pros

    Enticing starting salary, and that's where it ends.

    Cons

    Poor leadership
    Non-existent management
    ZERO work life balance
    Tangible knowledge of no employee value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be lured in by the salary, mediocre benefits, and current IPO. This company places no value on it's employees, the end user product is a joke, and the indecency of employee treatment is deplorable.
