I have been working at GoodData full-time (More than 3 years)
GoodData just finished with its best quarter, morale is high and outlook is optimistic.
Existing clients love the GoodData platform and keep expanding.
Most people you work with are friendly and engaging.
The company is growing up and making changes for the better. As with all type of changes, not everyone will love it or make the cut. During this transition, there are some pain points associated with employee attrition and new hires ramping.
Typical start-up challenge with rapid changes and ambiguity - the right people will love it, the wrong people will not thrive.
Advice to Management
Put the right people in the right seats, and let go of the ones that don't fit quickly. Seats on the rocket ship are limited, choose wisely.
Communicate more with your teams.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GoodData (San Francisco, CA) in June 2014.
Lengthy, long, complicated and convoluted. Multiple on-sites, unstructured interviews and a few interviewees were more intent on getting free consulting than sizing up for a fit. They then asked for a 30-60-90 day plan delivered as a presentation, but didn't set proper guidelines of expectations or outline the key friction they were wanting to solve. They weren't sure how the Marketing function should actually work, they didn't know what they didn't know... and when the hiring manager told me he was about to terminate one of the marketing team members who just interviewed me... it got awkward fast.
