    the company is rapidly growing in a very competitive market. we have a new executive leadership team with great people with long track records of success at top companies. our customers LOVE us and we are moving into an exciting period of innovation where we are adding exciting new features made possible by the architectural investments we have made over the past several years

    Cons

    the level of competition in the marketplace means the organization has to move at a very fast pace.

    Pros

    Growth opportunities, strong product, happy customers, organization constantly striving to do better for its employees and customers, smart team, excellent in-house training.

    Cons

    Common processes and systems not fully in place, culture not consistent throughout the different departments, some folks who have been around for multiple years less flexible in taking the company to the next level and this slows down the necessary evolution.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate clearly to all levels of the organization, the vision, cultural goals and priorities of the business.

    Pros

    Growing company with a good product. There is renewed energy in the product and engineering teams and maybe the whole company. Large amount of new technology development is happening and product and codebase will be renewed. Great place to join if you want in on building a very demanding product.

    New sales leadership has brought accountability and consistency which was missing.

    Catered lunches a few times a week, generally a low stress environment, most people are nice.

    Cons

    Founding team of engineers in Palo Alto are completely out of touch with tech, processes, and management practices. They slow down adaptive and are a bottleneck to progress. Some of them are responsible for key areas and are basically "figure heads" who consistently have to be overridden in some form to make progress. Overall there is little respect for these guys in the teams. They don't engage with the teams, teams are afraid to communicate with them, and they can not add any new thinking to basically what they knew 15 years back. No new ideas are reasonable with them but fortunately now there are more people who will listen and act on these ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the founding team but bring some balance and don't let the progress be shackled due to their presence.

    Keep the focus on product and customers.

    Pros

    I can only speak for the Austin office, but as far as I'm concerned there are very few negative things to say. I love Adaptive and I love working in the Austin office!

    -Great coworkers. My managers are incredibly helpful and approachable.
    -Lots of personal development. They want to see you succeed.
    -Free lunch on Mondays and free snacks, coffee, and beer always!
    -Our product is actually meaningful and used by many. I feel like the work I do is actually making a difference.
    -Competitive pay

    Cons

    -As with any tech company there are sometimes issues with the software. Also things are rapidly changing and growing, but that comes with the territory. Don't go into tech or software if you're not willing to keep up or roll with the punches.
    -Sometimes long hours.
    -No 401K match. But I believe that is coming with time?

    Pros

    Great C Suite with the experience to scale the product, operation and go-to market as a true leader in the CPM space. Customer focus embedded within a culture where colleagues support each other just as much as the teams they serve. Innovation within the product is providing value across HR, Finance, Sales and Marketing. Great company, people and products to be proud of.

    Cons

    Growing pains with some change over past few years, reminder to management that maintaining break neck pace through growth and change can burn out the best of us, need some fair balance.

    Advice to Management

    Amplify what has gotten us here while scaling in a balanced and methodical way.

    Pros

    Fast-track company with a product that is right for its market.

    Cons

    The best part of Adaptive WAS its culture. Focus on the customer first, and treat each other as humans, not just employees. Today the culture is win at all costs, including using up the people. Burnout is everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Back off and become more employee focused and invest in them. The business results will come naturally.

    Pros

    I love working at Adaptive. The culture is great, the people I work with are terrific, and the product is improving exponentially. To say that we are losing customers and people in droves is not a fair or accurate statement. I feel it reflects the opinions of those who have been around a long time and cannot accept the changes that are being made to IMPROVE the company. I'm a little taken aback from some of these negative reviews because they do NOT reflect what I am seeing, which is a vibrant, growing company that has more potential than any of the cloud CPM vendors out there. New functionality and features will set us aside from the competition in short order. Don't believe the BS. And who cares about the "bathroom" situation for heaven sakes?

    Cons

    The one (minor) complaint I have is with the new office layout. Although I think it is more collaborative and more like other Silicon Valley companies, something needs to be done about the noise. Even noise-cancelling headphones aren't a solution as you can still hear people, and the microphones on those things pick up all the background noise. Perhaps better acoustical ceiling tiling?

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in technology, solutions and good people. I think we are on the right path.

    Pros

    People at the company are very helpful, super nice. The recent additions to the executive team are helping the company raise its game to the next level. The product and sales teams are firing on all cylinders.

    Cons

    As a result of the "nice" culture, people can be hesitant to say no or honest about providing feedback. In the long run, this could hurt decision making
