    Pros

    Generous Benefits. Nice new Waltham office.

    Cons

    Products are losing competitiveness and that makes it difficult to grow the business regardless of the efforts of sales and marketing teams..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There have been some recent changes in senior management that nobody in sales agreed with. The sales and marketing teams are losing confidence in the founders.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you enjoy creating tools for developers. Work hard, play hard environment with a genuine commitment to team success. Low tolerance for egos, and big emphasis on delivering great customer service.

    Cons

    Highly distributed company, so lots of virtual meetings and few opportunities to see all colleagues face-to-face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate. You can never communicate too much to a distributed team.

    Pros

    Office and culture. Quality products (for the most part).

    Cons

    Pay and commission structure a lot like a shell game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay out on a 1 to 1 percentage ratio. Otherwise, keep doing what your doing

    Pros

    I just started working here a few weeks ago so I can't provide a detailed review of the company and office just yet. However, so far, everyone has been extremely helpful, welcoming, and encouraging. It seems as though there is much room for moving up and being successful within the company and I am very excited for my future here at Telerik

    Cons

    Since I have started I have not found one con yet. And honestly I don't see myself having any issues with this company, only great things here!

    Pros

    Telerik is an excellent place to work that truly lives by the motto of working hard and playing hard. The work is challenging but fun, and the atmospheres and colleagues are fantastic. Telerik is a job where you know that if you put in the work you can go far, as is seen by the growth of employees that have started at a certain position and worked their way up.

    Cons

    Overall workload can be tricky to manage at first, but can be easily worked through and more than manageable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Can be fun and challenging if you're working with good people

    Cons

    Serious lack of communication, transparency, and leadership at high levels, coupled with high turnover there as well. Long email threads and burdensome policies about stupid things; total black hole of communication when it comes to others. Used to feel like everybody was on same team but has become a bunch of fiefdoms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust and take care of your people like you once did.

    Communicate well as the organization evolves

    Pros

    Telerik provides the freedom to excel based on quality of work, quantity of efforts and creativity shown while going beyond the obvious tasks. Generous rewards are given based on great performance.

    Cons

    Decissions are sometimes made without discussing them with all relevant people leading to less understanding, acceptance or commitment. That includes also general policies.

    I worked at Telerik full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great health insurance benefits, good culture, awesome co-workers. Fun perks like catered lunch every other week, and Friday 4pm get together, also the occasional team building event.

    Cons

    Marketing needs better management, could offer a bit more vacation days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they currently realize what issues the company has and are working hard to fix them! So I guess the advice would be to stay on track.
