My first month has been pretty good at Saba. I thought I would take some time to reflect:

Access to People

I am pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to find the right person and reach out to him/her.  I can just walk to the cubicle and ask questions. It means less time staring at Inbox waiting for a response.

Such ease of access also adds to the liveliness and environment. I felt part of Saba Community much quicker than I thought.

Access to Information

It is good to be at a place where I don’t have to work through many network drives to access basic documents. Thanks to Saba Central. We also have a very impressive set of tools to collaborate. I can attend a meeting from anywhere potentially. If I miss it, I have access to the recorded version.

On the whole, very few process bottlenecks here and as a result, relatively smooth days at work.

Everything Else

Lunch is a great perk to have. The office is in a beautiful location. Work environment is quite friendly. People work really hard. I am glad to be part of such smart, diverse and reliable set of people. The buzz word these days is Summit.

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

    Pros

    A little recent history: this company had a lot of turmoil 2-3 years ago, when it was delisted from the stock exchange for shady accounting. The owners brought in a entirely new management team, and the company is now seeing the fruits of these changes.

    - All these people who have recently written negative reviews were the "weakest links." As someone sitting on the inside, this might suck for them but its great for the company and the rest of us. None of us want to be picking up the slack. I'm glad the leadership has the fortitude to release the weak performers and not just shuffle them around the company.

    - Lot of flexibility regarding how we do our jobs, where we work, and when we work. Most of the sales and marketing team members work remotely and are trusted to get their work done as they best see fit. Everyone is treated like an adult.

    - Leadership has a clear vision on where the company is going and is open in sharing this with the company. The execs are all rowing in the same direction. We have the CHRO, CEO, VP of Marketing and other execs all willing to do what it takes to for us and for our clients to succeed.

    - Great alignment between sales and marketing. Not perfect but everyone is openly working on this and its getting better each day.

    Cons

    - Too many people working remotely. Why have an office if people living right down the street never come in? Makes collaboration more difficult.
    - Company is growing fast. This creates a lot of uncertainty and is stressful to a lot of people...especially when there are people getting let go.
    - The sales team needs more formal training and a sales methodology.
    - The satellite offices don't seem to have all the perks that the people in the main office get.

    Advice to Management

    I have great faith in the direction of this company. I love that you are all willing to roll up your sleeves to get the job done. It seems to me you're all team players, and from my perspective there's not a lot of politics going on. A few points:
     - We badly need to implement more sales training. I don't think hiring experienced sales people is enough. Many are bringing bad habits they picked up in previous jobs.
     - Its going to be hard to define an office culture when most of the people in the office are working from home most days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saba Software (Austin, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online (no cover letter). Hiring manager emailed me a few weeks later. I talked to her on the phone, then came in person. She liked me and referred me to her boss. I talked to her on the phone. Interview went really well and I got an offer a few weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • There were none of the lame "what's you're greatest weakness" questions. Just a two-way conversation about my background, the company, and what I wanted.   Answer Question
