    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.

    High sales turnover due to sales management. They've lost and continue to loose top talent, and keep wondering why it happens. Toxic.

    Pros

    Its a complete package. Work wise flexible, timings flexible, dress code flexible, wfh option available, salary package is more than industry standard

    Cons

    Global Management hardly considers inputs from india team and that makes us to only follow and not initiate process or system update requests.

    Advice to Management

    Please have a collective approach on process and people.

    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!

    Pros

    Fast paced environment where everyone is empowered to make a difference. It's a very Swedish culture where opinion is sought and respected no matter the role you undertake.

    Cons

    Beginning to show the signs of a large corporate organisation as big hitters are brought in from the big BI vendors. This can lead to a very political environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Resist the urge to become too corporate as the employees love the culture. Listen to the voice of the customer more as they love the product but want to feel listened to.
