    I have been working at MicroStrategy full-time (More than a year)


    Microstrategy is working in two very hot industries (enterprise analytics and security). I am seeing lots of really great change in the company and that is paying off for company and employees. Company recently went from annual to quarterly bonus, as an example of more directly connecting contribution to employee benefit.


    Sometime traffic can be a issue getting in and out of office around Christmas time, but have seen decrease in issues over last 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Microstrategy had a really good team of employees. Keep doing events like the company all-hands, company picnic, as well as smaller departmental events to continue to connect the team together.

    Director of Product Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MicroStrategy (McLean, VA).


    Was greeted and seated after having to download one of their apps to enter the building...ok. Interviewers were late and disorganized, save one who was more senior. A younger engineer who interviewed told me that they "hadn't had a woman in this position before." He said he assumed I was interviewing for a Marketing position, and asked me to send him a sample of my writing. Needless to say, I never sent one. I also didn't send thank you notes or check on how the interview had gone with my HR contact. The atmosphere there was bizarre, so I crossed the company off of my list.
