    I have been working at Qlik (More than a year)

    Pros

    Qlik is fast growing high-tech company with an amazing culture. The company was started in Sweden 20 years ago and although it is now HQ-ed in US and listed on the NASDAQ, it preserved its Swedish soul. As part of new employee orientation every employee is sent to a week of training in Sweden called the Qlik academy, which is really awesome experience. Qlik is the market leader in the Visual Analytics Platform market and its customers LOVE Qlik's products. As such the expectations are high and everything moves quickly. The company is growing very quickly (20-30% per year) and there are many opportunities for professional growth. As a sales professional Qlik is an awesome place to be. The company is investing in product development, marketing and sales and the market is reacting very positively. Qlik's products make big impact on business, and we have a great story that resonates well with our current and future customers.

    Cons

    As a software company Qlik is high paste environment and everything will be moving very fast. There is a lot of competition and noise in the market. Therefore to succeed you need to be highly motivated to learn, compete and face challenging situations.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time

    Pros

    There are good and friendly co-workers, and an international yearly company retreat. International presence ensures you get to work with a diverse group of people.

    Cons

    New management trying hard to impress and coming off as desperate. The feel of the company has changed over the years to where we employees are more a number on a spreadsheet than a person on the team.

    Advice to Management

    keep things human. Make sure the work experience at Qlik makes the employees feel more like a family than individuals only looking out for themselves.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Qlik goes out of their way to make sure that they hire the right people. The interview process is extensive and all who you interface with are up front about the company. Many people have been here for a long time, and have taken on different roles over time so growth, promotion and just trying new things is all accepted at Qlik. You can't find a better group of people to work with and for.

    Cons

    Typical rapidly growing technology company that needs to take the time to put process in place for repeatable success.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows and prospers, keep much of what made us Qlik in place going forward. Having Management fully accessible is a great plus for Qlik. We want our employees to still bleed Qlik green!

    I worked at Qlik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent product Very smart and hard working colleagues Decent compensation, especially with stock options In general the time I spent there was fun. I worked very hard but felt I was fairly rewarded

    Cons

    The only downside I saw was the company has been growing very fast and turned into another Cognos or Oracle, but I guess that's just the way it is. There are more processes in place and everything takes longer to do. More importantly, I used to know most people in the company but obviously that's not the case anymore. With that "family like" feeling gone I decided to move on.

    Advice to Management

    I am sure I am just stating the obvious but please focus more on sales execution and product innovation more. The delay of Qlik Sense was a major mis-step but I am glad that's behind us. Now it's time to figure out how to sell Qlik Sense.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to do what you think is right and the team overall is very passionate about the products. For a software company, it is refreshing to work where the CTO actually uses the product daily for work and personal use. There is room for failure as long as we are trying to improve and learn.

    Cons

    The company is heavily decentralized. Even with all of the latest technology, face-to-face meetings may mean a lot of travel. It will depend on your role. There is a lot of change of happening which isn't a negative really but something to realize when joining the company.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is really good and there needs to be a constant attention to it as the company grows and expands. Being responsive to a growing company can be more difficult unless everyone at the company understands that they can take responsibility on their own.
