    Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Redwood City, CA

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

    Pros

    Smart, talented and experienced people committed to Company's success
    Company is well positioned to be very successful in cloud + big data + analytics, strong growing list of customers.
    Experienced leaders with deep domain knowledge in the service's main industry (ie, they know what they are doing)

    Cons

    Daily site up meeting is getting big with growth in the team, on one hand it's great having visibility into the daily production and blocking issues, on other hand it may not be most efficient any more.
    Commute is a bit much for some people going to Redwood City
    Interviewers set a very hire bar, some candidates who might be actually successful at Sumo may end up not getting an offer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring the best experienced and proven leaders at the senior management level and the company will continue moving fast producing good results from happy employees. I know other companies have gotten into spot of keeping inexperienced/incompetent senior managers way longer than they should and it really suffocates and lowers morale, don't fall into that trap. Keep and maintain a hire bar and the company will do fine.

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

    Pros

    The best part of working at Sumo Logic is the people. Just about everyone is very talented and fun to work with. The chance to be a leader in a multi-billion dollar market makes it even better.

    Cons

    The commute is a pain but flexible hours make it better. No telecommute either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have more activities. For example, we only have a few hackathons per year.

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

    Pros

    Senior management listens to concerns and are level headed, great coworkers, the environment is fun, there are a lot of events to participate in if you choose to, benefits are paid for (and good), lunch is catered daily : )

    Cons

    We are a startup so there are still growing pains that we are working through. One of them would be around an efficient immigration process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an HR Director. We need someone who actually has HR experience vs handing off the responsibility to someone who doesn't have the right background for it.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is very good here. A lot of smart and intelligent people to work with. Being a completely cloud based company, much higher rate of growth in coming years. Weekly activities and events are really nice. People are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Career paths are not in place as of now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce more professional events to increase employee motivation, introduce performance measurement system and perks according to performance analysis.
