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

    Pros

    Incredibly smart, creative and passionate workforce and true belief by many, many folks in the MicroStrategy platform strength and market potential. A focus on excellence combined with a belief in face to face interaction as much as possible. Some great hires recently across the business. Culture is very results and KPI focused - truly a data driven attitude - can cut both ways but mostly positive.

    Cons

    Company is still working through the right mix of field empowerment and top down direction and strategy--- both are needed and leadership sometimes can lurch a bit between them or be impatient with the time and effort required to move from idea to execution to institutionalized business practice. Also work to do on moving from a pure technology to business solution focus --- and finding the right mix of both.
