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

    Pros

    Very strong, competitive product offerings now even stronger with the availability of Qlik Sense
    Quarterly bonus based on clearly defined deliverables
    Good benefits
    Dynamic company with great opportunities for those who want to do more
    Not micromanaged - a positive if you are a self starter
    Significant changes in senior management seem to have resolved the issues people mentioned in previous reviews because I have not seen or experienced the same thing
    Great work/life balance. You will have busy weeks which is to be expected in any company with major product releases and quarterly sales quotas.

    Cons

    I haven't really experienced any cons except perhaps
    - the very long hiring/interviewing process
    - some people/mid-managers don't buy into the "Challenge" core value

    Pros

    Great product although is is only one and has some age to it although QLIKSENSE is now out and appears to be better.
    Good money if you over produce.

    Cons

    Marketing and lead generation is the worst ever experienced for a company that size resulting in new hire turn over at an industry high of 39%. The Oracle lead sales Mgmt. is no fun either unless your are one of the boys on Joe D. team.
    Reps spend most of their time updating SFDC and Sales 360 and doing reviews of SOE, SOI's that literately there is little time for selling there.. The process is all consuming. the new model is to hire young inexperienced sales folks and pay them less money and just work the process. the challenge however is zero leads coming in creates a vacuum of need and expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change it all out for new leadership soon.

    Pros

    Very interesting product, shows well, serious issues around Big Data and they don't seem to be listening.

    Cons

    North American sales leadership are bizarre, unethical and as slimy as they come, if you're considering a sales position, I would recommend that you RUN unless you just have to have a job. Trust me, it's worse than where you're at now. Politics are unbelievable, they fire people who blow out their number because they don't like the mix of deals, they fire sales management if they don't think they travel enough, even though they hit their number, etc. etc. etc. The CEO claims that they will never be like that big company run by Larry and he's right, they're even sleazier and they'll never come close to achieving anything close to that company.

    Pros

    They are always pushing you to succeed so that you grow to be all that you can be. They are some of the most kind and patient people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    They are always pushing you to succeed so that sometimes you are drinking from a fire hose. This is only a "CON" in that there is a lot to learn, and I had to put something in this space ...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do, we will catch up ...

    I have been working at Qlik full-time

    Pros

    QlikTech values its employees and treats them well. It has a set of corporate values that are continually emphasized, and this creates cohesion in the corporate culture. The R&D department (i.e. software engineering) is growing, and seems to have a continual improvement process in place, i.e. it learns from its mistakes and improves its process.

    Cons

    No significant cons experienced during my employment.

    Pros

    The product is awesome.

    There are some great people here that will go the extra mile.

    Cons

    This is an extremely political environment with backstabbing, deal making and promotions based on relationships. This occurs at all levels.

    Culture as represented by the CEO does not exist. He is too disengaged to know better.

    Pros

    Many talented people work here which can make things intense because you're always pushed to achieve. Management cares about morale as reflected in their annual company wide event. QlikTech lives its corporate vales.

    Cons

    Need to protect against burn-out. More help, resources and time to strategize would push things to the next level.

    Pros

    West Coast has some of best weather in the country. You can drive around and see nice sights before customer meetings. There are good restaurants to dine at with partners.

    Cons

    West coast mgt. is so insecure that they eventually trash everyone to save their job. West Coast knows how to "manage up". They blame everything on growing pains and brag how they learned everything they know from Larry.....3-4 months in, most new West Coast folks are wondering what they got themselves into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems like the CEO has checked out and Larry's cronies spew their hyperbole and trash all over the place. It's like a mafia has taken over.
