    I worked at Netuitive

    Pros

    Excellent staff with a good sense of dedication. Challenging technical work being done using modern approaches (no waterfall, for example). Free health care for individual employees. 3 weeks leave to start, with 4 after 5 years. Good roster of customer names. Friendly, pro family attitude.

    Cons

    Leadership consistently stated one path to success, but was slow to embrace the necessary changes to make it happen. Sales was too intent on whale hunting vs. creating a sustainable forecast. CEO had sales knowledge, but no real technical acumen at all. No match on the 401k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has changed since my time there, but I'd advise them to remain open and stop making half baked decisions behind closed doors.

    I have been working at Netuitive full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Phenomenal technology, fun work environment, super smart people.

    Cons

    So, so many missed business opportunities. Management team is always changing strategy to get with the next trend: Virtualization, big data, APM, cloud, industry platform, point solution, etc. Just when you think this is finally THE strategy, everything changes again. They never seem to give anything enough time to build a success, so have remained in a very challenging enterprise software market selling to mega corporations.

    The "founder" at Netuitive is really the one pulling the strings behind the scenes, although few people realize this. He is is a super smart technologist and engineer, but thinks he knows every other job function better than the people with the actual expertise. In actuality his experience is a bit myopic as it almost exclusively comes from Netuitive alone. If you're not willing to easily let go of the "old-new" strategy that he sold you on to begin with, you will likely find yourself being pushed out the door.

    The company is now pivoting to a promising SaaS model, but are a little late to the game, so need to execute extremely well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the companies future, I hope the'll bring back a more mature and experienced CEO so the founder can go back to what he does best. (The founder just took back the leadership role in the past few months). The company is at a crucial stage and the latest direction requires a well-rounded and proven leader. Furthermore, above all else, let's stay focused on executing on a strategy we believe in.

    Pros

    Great people and really interesting proposition that can deliver value for customers. Generally, staff are valued and looked after. Good pay and commission structure.

    Cons

    Long term start up still seeking the the sweet spot. Too many changes in strategy for comfort. Under resourced especially in engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They know what's needed and have executed.

    Pros

    Great technology and really smart people. The work environment is fun and the customers that get it are really inspiring.

    Cons

    Executive leadership seems to be lost. Really need to focus on strategic alignment and direction instead of micro-managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your strengths and let the chiefs of each department to their jobs.

    I worked at Netuitive full-time

    Pros

    Netuitive hires talented people, and for the most part, working there felt like working with a group of close friends. The environment was collaborative and relaxed. Although it seemed to change over time as the company grew, Netuitive had a great culture overall.

    There were opportunities for career development, mentorship, and training on new technologies and skills. I was very satisfied with how well Netuitive encouraged its employees to develop as professionals and own their work.

    Cons

    There were too many "reorgs" and abrupt changes in product direction. My department suffered from inconsistent management, and Netuitive had issues getting past reactive product development. The work/life balance could have been much better (outside of release crunches).

    Pros

    There are some great people at Netuitive. This makes it a joy to interact and collaborate. Everyone is very easy to work with. This is a small startup and teamwork is critical.

    Cons

    Right now, they are small fish in a big pond. They may lack the resources to keep up in a very competitive marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get, and stay, agile.

    I have been working at Netuitive

    Pros

    Interesting work. Challenging at times (in a good way). Good work/life balance. Company has an overall family feel. You really like everyone there. Hands down. Well designed and developed product.

    Cons

    Business strategy seems to change direction often. Hard to get a foothold on a direction without focus and stick-to-it-ness. Given it's a small company, employees have to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find your zen and stick to it. Value all of your employees no matter what they do for the organization. Best way to excel beyond the small business mentality is to trust the professionals that you hire as being capable of performing their jobs well.
