    Pros

    As far as benefits and perks go, they have an excellent package and are continually surveying employees to find where it can improve. Salary is competitive, and while salary + benefits are great, a workplace needs culture and community to thrive. In my experience, NetSuite strives to promote skill and career growth, push interactions between its global offices, and provide a friendly office community that makes work just enjoyable and create product to be proud of.

    Cons

    My team continually pushes for high standards of excellence for our product and pushes for quick completion as well. These demands mean extra time put in as well as limited time to research the absolute best ways to implement our product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In short, continue being excellent. Push for continual growth in all your employees, and instill passion in us so we can be driven to compete in our markets.

    I worked at NetSuite full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    While NetSuite is now getting to be a "big" company with over 3,000 employees, a lot of the things that made them great when they were small still hold true. The executive team is still largely the same from the start-up days and are fantastic leaders with great vision. If you want to work hard, see amazing year-over-year growth, and get rewarded for it in the form of a great career, NetSuite is the place for you to work. And, NetSuite is a place where you have to earn your stripes, so expect a fair competition for career progression from other aspiring employees. Negotiate a good package up-front so you can build on that. But don't negotiate too hard. NetSuite usually makes fair offers in the first go-around. They are not in the habit of low balling offers and going back & forth.

    Cons

    You're not going to make incredible amounts of money on stock anymore given the company's valuation. If you're looking for a stock comp gold mine, bet on a smaller pre-IPO company.

    I have been working at NetSuite

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package
    Growing company - on its way to be $1B company

    Cons

    One of the worst job experiences I have had in the past 10 years. Middle management do not know how to manage and just want worker bees to churn out work versus striving for development and growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your managers take some serious leadership training. People leave jobs because of bad managers not bad companies.

    I worked at NetSuite part-time

    Pros

    The company is very open about it's plans and goals and goes to great lengths to ensure that employees understand the integral parts that they play in the organization.

    Cons

    The start-up mentality in the larger company structure makes for a lot of inefficiencies, heavy workloads, and long days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on smaller easy to solve issues but don't lose track of the bigger picture. Suffering long-term inefficiencies to take care of low hanging fruit may prove more harmful than helpful.

    I worked at NetSuite full-time

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is friendly, intelligent, hard-working, and dedicated to making NetSuite's services the best they can be. Work-life balance is a priority!

    Cons

    The Legal Department could use better management. Completing individual projects can be swift, efficient, and effective but when multiple divisions or departments are involved efficiency is quickly reduced. Office politics are a mystery to new employees, and there is no centralized or uniform filing system/document management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement and enforce a unified filing system. Maybe hire another paralegal or legal secretary to get this ball rolling and then stay-on to support the IP and Sales teams --maybe hire two!

    I have been working at NetSuite full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have been here for 4 years and can't say enough about it. NetSuite is truly a great product, and one that is improving by leaps and bounds at a rapid pace. The management team is relatively young, energetic, motivated, and a pleasure to work for.

    Cons

    The pay isn't out of this world, but work-life balance more than makes up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your policy is that people can & will only earn significant raises when they get a promotion, then stick to that. My raise - on a percentage basis - was lowest the year I was promoted.

    Pros

    Ability to work remote, flexible schedule able to continue to learn, rapid growth

    Cons

    There is no corporate culture except on of Greed and generating billing hours. The Professional Services Group includes PMs, Consultants and other billable customer facing resources. The experienced consultants and PMs are leaving the ship and new green recruits are sent to the front lines with no experience in the product and urged to bill as many hours as possible. Billable hours is the only focus which has created an every person for themselves work environment. There is no collaboration and certainly no motivation to do what is right by the customer since your variable pay is directly correlated to billable hours. There is no focus on continuous improvement or making methods more efficient.

    I would not recommend working at NetSuite, maybe it's different in Sales than in PS since growth growth and more growth at any cost is the company mantra.

    I am looking elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling employees to "get back to the gold mine" and do some exit interviews if you care about your company and where it is headed.
