    Pros

    Great company with interesting products on the market. I am convinced that we have the best BI products on the market.

    Cons

    Extreme focus from the management on the CRM system. If it is not in the system, it is not happening.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better in providing opportunities to move within the company. If people should stay longer in the company the potential for career shifts must improve.

    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 (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.
