    Pros

    Great product, great culture, energetic. Goal oriented and driven.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a little out of whack. People work very hard and long and most travel frequently.

    Once a brilliant place to work, now weighed down by incompetent middle management

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

    Pros

    The product is second to none - simple, powerful and works as advertised.
    Great corporate culture - open & straightforward, move fast, challenge and take responsibility.
    CEO, COO, CTO and other older management actually live by these values.
    Vision executed to perfection - from startup to IPO to industry leader.

    Cons

    New management jumped on the the gravy train and only pay lip service to corporate values.
    Too many middle managers with randomly generated job titles justifying their existence creating unproductive work for others - endless powerpoint and meetings culture creeping in.
    Not enough perks or opportunities outside US or Europe - poorly run offices, unskilled sales teams,...
    Product vision unclear - all the focus is on one competitor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintenance revenue is being ignored - hire sales teams to fill this gap.
    Take charge of HR and get rid of unproductive management and titles - what is a Senior Business Expert? How can someone teach other how to sell when they've never sold anything before?
    Embrace the changing customer buying models - subscription, cloud,...

    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.

    Disruptive technologies make waves in our industry.

    Lesser known company, makes sales harder as we have to explain how we are.

    Give us fair quotas, not something you guess we can do.

    Pros

    The brand-new new product, Qlik Sense, is one of the top if not the best data analysis product out there. R&D has done a phenomenal job in creating something beautiful, easy to use, and useful. Qlik should be proud of what it has accomplished - re-revolutionize the BI industry once again. The challenge is still around increasing market awareness. Qlik has been around for 20 years but Tableau has recently taken the lead in awareness. Qlik is well-positioned to take that back with proper marketing and customer nurturing.

    Tons of career opportunities if you know how to network across the company. People change roles frequently and it's not discouraged.

    Cons

    The company has grown so fast (head count doubles every few years) in so many locations (Philadelphia, San Francisco, Raleigh, London, Sweden, Singapore, etc) that it's gotten very difficult to keep track of who's doing what and has resulted in duplication of effort or lack of alignment. These challenges can certainly be overcome but be aware of what type of environment YOU thrive in. Some people love the far-flung international culture, others don't fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO and most of the C-level execs are wonderful people, approachable and down to earth. A not-insignificant amount of politics one or two levels down. C-level execs need to make sure *everyone* live the company values, and possibly penalize performers who succeed by going around the values.

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

    Pros

    Communication of values
    Social events, time off for volunteering, annual company summit, potential for global travel. Company product strategy, market share and growth; positive regard from customers and industry experts.

    Cons

    Lack of career advancement, compensation, lack of mentor program. Management speaks about building and strengthening the culture and it seems sincere, but it is not visible. There is little to no emphasis on developing the internal talent the company has. Perhaps that will change as Qlik continues to mature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are continuously going to push to keep expenses down in arbitrary ways, be sure to invest in your people. Provide more focus groups, career development and mentoring programs. Promote from within.

    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.
