    Pros

    Great company especially if you are looking to get out of the big company grind. We are agile, you know everyone's names and faces, still have company picnics and holiday parties, get things done quickly and get to build some cool stuff as the company continues to grow. Great values and community service culture.

    Cons

    Great work life balance which is great but would like to see people work a little harder to take the company to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to raise the bar on hiring top talent and addressing performance issues in order to continue to grow and scale the company.

    Pros

    Solution provides great value to the customer. Customers generally have a positive implementation in a relatively short time frame. Most customers renew subscriptions. Lots of great references. The people at Xactly are hardworking and very smart. Everyone gets involved in giving back to the community. Great Culture!

    Cons

    Typical growth pains of a company trying to grow. Need to deepen the current product and provide other complimentary solutions to widen the offering and provide more value to customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus efforts on product improvements. Listen to what customers need and continue to drive value to customers. Continue to keep true to CARE values.

    Pros

    Very good company culture. Contribute to community organizations and fundraising efforts play a large role. Environment is generally enthusiastic and optimistic. Good people who mean well in all departments. People root for one another.

    Cons

    High turnover, heavy micro-management. Rub shoulders with the right people and they'll see that you succeed. If you fail to play corporate politics, you won't be long for the role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your team - you hired them for a reason.

    Pros

    Xactly takes its mission to heart: Inspiring performance in ways that treat professionals like people first. The company has a fantastic SaaS offering, great management, and work-life flexibility. The CEO is an incredible visionary, and very personal.

    Cons

    The pace is fast, since it's a startup environment. And the company is definitely in the process of refining and formalizing some of its processes --- but that's expected.

    Pros

    Companies core values of Customer Focus, Accountability, Respect and Excellence are lived every day at all levels of the company. Great energy in the Denver office. High expectations for all, and low performers don't last long. Top performers move up in the organization

    Cons

    None that I can come up with now. For the sales people, being comfortable and effective in prospecting/cold calling is essential for success. The company is very number focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up. The company is growing a lot but hasn't lost focus on it's core values.

    See cons, double down on critical resources.
