Pros

I've worked in a professional environment for almost 15 years and this is the best experience I've had, hands down. The people are truly amazing and sincere. Upper management tries and succeeds in creating a positive culture. The services offered are top-notch and our clients are treated as if they are apart of the Skytap family. Every team is involved to create a good experience from our smaller clients to our enterprise clients. This is a very ethical company which is very important to me. Compensation and benefits are good. Plenty of time off and most importantly the work-life balance is more than fair. The managers are wonderful and very approachable. Everyone is committed to helping each other succeed. Social issues are important and they not only talk the talk but walk the walk. I'm proud to work here. I've always been an idealist so working for a company that tries to better the community is wonderful. This is a wonderful place to work overall.

Cons

The only thing that comes to mind is the commission structure is a little confusing. Other than that, I can't think of anything.

Advice to Management

None at the moment.

The managers are wonderful and very approachable.

Pros

New leadership has breathed new life in the org. Specific call outs to the new CEO Brad Schick, who has been extremely beneficial to the overall direction of the company. -Skytap is a group of passionate, intelligent, and hardworking people. -Good work/life balance. Never made to feel bad when taking PTO. -Good compensation. -Superb COVID handling. -Good middle management.

Cons

Some major decisions get made without enough data to back them up. This is mostly due to the fact that the company is fairly small given the space in which it operates. There also aren't a ton of growth options in the company, given its size.

Advice to Management

Keep Brad at the helm. Product team is strong as well, keep the leadership there. New sales leadership should pay close attention to what works already and ensure that is well nurtured.

Good middle management.

Pros

- Company culture and values are discussed regularly - Management/CEO are very transparent and involved - Work/life balance is prioritized by management, which I believe has tremendous positive impact on employee performance and retention - Great employee perks - Plenty of growth potential and advancement opportunities - CEO has a clear vision

Cons

- No cons to list at this time, but as any growing company would expect, there could be typical growing pains in the future

Advice to Management

Keep being transparent while listening to employees and requesting their feedback regularly. I highly believe that this is the best way to retain employees. Keep up the great work!

Work/life balance is prioritized by management, which I believe has tremendous positive impact on employee performance and retention
