    I have been working at Qlik full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Company values and the attitude towards the employees. Yearly employee summit that everyone attends, not just sales. Multiple programs for employees to help their communities.

    Cons

    No employee stock purchase plan with limited opportunities to earn stock. No international user group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an employee stock purchase plan. Your employees will definitely invest in the company

    Pros

    Driven environment that requires a lot of learning.
    Remote working and not that much travel.

    Cons

    Post IPO, not too exciting. Management is always coming down on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics.

    I worked at Qlik full-time

    Pros

    Qlik pioneered in memory BI. Qlik won a great place to work award back in 2007-2008. Qlik is a global company. Qlik has a Swedish heritage.

    Cons

    Mgt. has a turn and burn mentality in this region. Its like working at a seedy hotel. Salesteam, partners, and customers now look at Tableau and Spotfire as a very attractive alternative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How many more people have to quit before the ceo wakes up?

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

    Pros

    There are new reps quitting every month and there are new reps starting every month. This means you will meet lots and lots of new people! The management enjoys a good manipulation. This means I have a future in used car sales!

    Cons

    The turnover is so epic that even the HR VP is quitting!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't worry. Be Happy.

    Pros

    Company has big name customers.
    Cool product that some users are fanatic about.
    Yearly company meeting with lots of celebration.
    Company gets good press from major magazines.

    Cons

    Mafia-like tactics of manipulation and pressure are becoming the norm.
    Support is not well-staffed or trained.
    Support can take days for customer response.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many customers are cringing at the new high pressure tactics. Listen more to customers and new employees who want to make a difference.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed attitude and decent work-life balance encouraged; good benefits. Finance encourages frugality but teams and offices get the funding they need

    Cons

    HR & IT struggling to keep pace with the growth of the company. Middle management overly focused on short-term thinking. Transition towards a bigger company resulting in arbitrary one-size-fits-all processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because you are going for the enterprise market doesn't mean you have to absorb enterprise buzzword culture. Real danger of the Swedish values turning into empty words when processes and internal communications shoehorn them into trivial and meaningless activities.
