    Currently experiencing growing pains but Ping is destined for great things- in it for the long haul.

    I have been working at Ping Identity full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The opportunity for career advancement, visibility to executives, and appreciation of employees is outstanding. The things I've been able to experience so early in my career simply by just raising my hand has been unparalleled. Our great culture starts and ends with Andre- his passion for Ping and every employee, along with his ability to cascade his message downward is the reason I will be at Ping for the long haul. I've also never worked with such a great group of employees- there is such unbelievable talent in every department and every role here at Ping.

    Cons

    Ping has experienced an unusual amount of change over the last year or so- some of which has been very difficult and hasn't been managed or communicated in the right way. The changes at the executive level have changed the vibe of Ping but I can see the need for it. Ping is growing up- a good thing but not always fun or easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executives need to continue to find the balance between performing but keeping our culture in tact. My suggestion for execs is to improve communication from the top all the way to the bottom- you can never over-communicate.

    Once promising company now rapidly imploding. In constant catch up mode to competitors.

    I have been working at Ping Identity (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best of breed enterprise product with excellent technical teams to support customers. Prestigious customer list. Nice downtown location. Some really good people trying to make the company successful.

    Cons

    Arrogant senior management that values empty "big thinkers" and executive ego strokers over job competency and execution. Dysfunctional level of distrust between departments leads to an inability to stay focused on any initiatives. Too many incompetent people held key roles for way too long resulting in weakening market position and sales opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your insularity and arrogance is ruining the company. Take a hard look at yourselves and how the company is performing under your leadership. It is really sad to see what has become of Ping over the past several years.

    I worked at Ping Identity as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The technical teams are very professional and effective. They have their own style of agile operations but they get the job done.

    Cons

    They have some internal issues with direction and market capture but seem to be growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out your direction and focus like a laser.

    Pros

    - Andre (CEO) really cares about the people
    - Good perks
    - Awesome product in a great market
    - Smart people, great culture

    Cons

    - Lots of transition but that's to be expected as Ping moves away from being a start up company
    - Leadership must be proactive and not reactive as things change
    - Need to break down silos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't get too "corporate" -- balance the growth with the culture

    Pros

    Ping has created a world class product over the last 11 years and continues to innovate on the platform. Ping is deployed in 60 of the Fortune 100 and is certainly viewed in the enterprise space as a best of breed technology. Culture is good in the Denver HQ with lots of young energy and passion for growing the company. Andre Durand is a true visionary!

    Cons

    Only real challenges are the continuous changes that are common with a growth company. Simplifying the marketing message is something that also needs to be changed and upgraded.

    Pros

    Good products, solid customer base.

    Cons

    Screwy sales comp plan, (to me) management seemed insular. How could they not foresee the need for a massive reduction in force 2 months out? I quit a very good job to join here in May only to be canned in July. Not even enough time to make enemies or not make my quota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure I have any. I wasn't here long enough to really get to know any of them.

    I worked at Ping Identity full-time

    Pros

    Locations are ok. Denver office looks cool, but it's not necessarily a great place to get work done. The passion and commitment had been the company's strongest asset, but it's gone toxic.
    Very strong development team

    Cons

    The company kept bad managers on staff way too long
    Poor collaboration across groups was basically institutionalized
    LIke so many companies, risk taking was encouraged, but failure punished

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure what went wrong, but the wheels came off the bus so quick I didn't know what was happening.
    Learn how to fire people with dignity -- not over the phone, not by proxy. Face-to-face like an adult.

    I worked at Ping Identity full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent product and reputation in the industry. Growing quickly and likely to meet IPO goals. They hire talented young professionals and provide excellent productivity tools. Visionary company in the Identity Security space.

    Cons

    Very political for a small company. The drinking and partying atmosphere may not be right for everyone. Not the place to be if you are over 40 or female - you'll see very few peers and even fewer who are advancing. Little to no career development and senior management has minimal experience at an executive level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more than you talk and judge.
