Why do Lucid Software employees quit?

Pros

- Coworkers are typically awesome and Lucid does a good job of hiring good people. The sales floor has a lot less "typical salespeople" compared to similar orgs. - The executive team is great and there is a decent level of transparency within the company. - Benefits are great and they go above and beyond to help in this aspect. - Weekly lunches/stocked break room.

Cons

- The initial, and probably most important con is the lack of pay. The compensation is well below market value for all positions in the sales org and it is only getting worse. If you're looking for traditional sales salaries, Lucid is not the place. - Quota attainment is unbelievably low (around 20-30% in most cases). Reps really don't ever feel like they have the ability to hit quota. - Middle management is unexperienced and it shows. Lucid acts like they want to expand into an enterprise level sales org but they don't have the management to do so. - The sales org in particular is suffering in the way of culture and overall morale. When I was there, reps were typically looking for other jobs; management either had no idea, or didn't care. - There is a greater push towards being in the office/at your desk simply so it looks good. Management really doesn't have any answers and they are enforcing silly tactics to try and improve numbers. (This is adding to the cultural shift as well)

Advice to Management

- Hire management who have experience growing a sales org and get rid of those who don't. - Face the fact that the culture is shifting at Lucid; you can't sweep it under the rug. - Seriously dig into the compensation. This is a massive issue especially since the culture is failing. Reps will leave unless they have something they can't get elsewhere. - Silly tactics and gimmicks don't work. If numbers are low, it isn't because someone isn't at their desk enough; find the real problem.

How are promotions handled at Lucid Software?

Pros

Like all the software companies in the valley, the office is a fun environment. Lucid has a track record of recruiting incredibly bright employees, so you're always surrounded by greatness. They also offer the standard snacks and catered meals every monday.

Cons

There's not a lot of upward mobility. Once you enter a role, plan to stay in that position and that salary for a while. The promotions are small and the ability to move into new roles is limited. They tend to hire externally for leadership roles, and the company is becoming more rigid every day.

Advice to Management

Help your employees build longlasting careers by providing more individual opportunities.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Lucid Software?

Pros

Lucid is a fantastic place to work. I've spent the last 1.5+ years working on the Lucidpress Sales team but can confidently say that the company as a whole invests in its people and works diligently to develop its employees. +Consistently exceed quota both at a personal and team level; given every resource and tool to do so +Receive ongoing trainings and attention from leadership to continue personal and career development +Have been awarded several promotions and have frequent career development conversations and know what my career trajectory looks like with Lucid

Cons

Sure, there are always things to get nit picky about especially in a rapidly growing company, but overall the pros far outweigh the cons. Any shortcoming or major complaints I could justify would be from lack of self introspection and individual empowerment. -Base pay may be slightly below industry averages in typical SaaS sales organizations, however the proven track record of success in hitting OTEs/quotas at Lucid far outweigh any additional base pay that may be received with other companies when only a small fraction of reps are hitting quota. With Lucid, I've always felt that my OTE is my "base pay" because it's consistently achievable and the opportunity to make more than my OTE is on the table each month by getting into accelerators.

Advice to Management

Continue with full transparency as we continue to scale globally.
