What Employees Say
I have been working at Ping Identity full-time for less than a year
Ping is one of the few companies that actually seems to invest in it's people -- with training, different opportunities, and an open line of communication with upper management. The pay is... competitive, the benefits are incredible, the people are dedicated, hardworking, and kind individuals, and there are snacks on deck 24/7. Leadership tries harder than any other company I've worked at to be completely transparent and honest with employees, and there is a bonus incentive set aside at the end of the year for meeting performance goals. There is also room for horizontal and vertical mobility for people that want to try their hand at a different part of the company. Overall, it's a great place to work and it shows in the company morale.
Ping is in a time of transition so things can be a little hectic; upper management is incredibly busy all of the time, meeting rooms can be harder to come by. But overall, any perceived negatives... pale in comparison to the pros of working here versus other tech companies in the same industry.
Advice to Management
My managers are open, transparent, with a good sense of humor. However, it would be nice to have more one-on-one time set aside every week to help work through some bottlenecks.
I have been working at SendGrid full-time for more than 3 years
- culture and people are amazing, they challenge you and push you to be the best version of yourself. - decision making process is astounding for a company of our size. Product, finance and... engineering decisions are made in a very data-driven way. - Willing to discuss the hard topics and make the most informed decision. - Benefits are amazing, free lunch everyday is fantastic, i hope we don't lose this. - If you're motivated and willing to work hard, you can be recognized and tasked with more responsibility. I've seen many people grow their careers here and be promoted every year based on their performance and determination.
- typical pains related to integrating with Twilio after the acquisition in Feb of 2019. Most painful of which is the figuring out how we make decisions now as one larger company. (Twilio has less... process / standard way to make decisions, SendGrid has a formalized process). - The general energy of the company is lower now after the Twilio acquisition – still positive but now that we're not a standalone, public company, there appears to be less control over our business (email, email marketing) destiny. - Culture of Twilio, while close to SendGrid's, is definitely different and will take some time to feel part of one
Advice to Management
Keep working to make Twilio better by adopting and incorporating the best processes, people and systems across the two companies. There is a lot to learn from the employees at both companies that,... if implemented, could result in an awesome company.
