Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

the stars are disappearingApr 11, 2016 - Software Engineer in Durham, NCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Leadership team really does treat staff like human beings. Mostly. They definitely live the work hard, play hard mentality. Variable compensation since the NetSuite acquisition has gotten better (ESPP, RSU's). While there is an org chart, nobody ever really cared much about it at Bronto when it came to who you had lunch with or caught up with socially. We're all just people, some in roles with greater organizational responsibility than others. 40 hour work week is typical. Work/life balance is real. Glassdoor doesn't reflect it yet, but the Bronto division of NetSuite is now led by a great woman executive. There's been more emphasis lately on figuring out how to bring gender diversity to Bronto.
Since the NetSuite acquisition, a lot has changed. Bronto's leadership has resisted a lot of it, but the malaise of a giant corporation that grew too fast is creeping in and pervading, corrupting everything about Bronto that was once good. It should be noted that the CEO that everyone loves, Joe Colopy, and his partner Chaz Felix are no longer with the company. So their Glassdoor ratings should not be considered here. Bronto as a company no longer exists. You should be looking at NetSuite for reviews now. Budget cuts and bureaucracy have sucked the joy out of a lot of the work. The "play hard" is not gone yet by any means, but has been curtailed a good bit since NetSuite took over. Racial and gender diversity can be bad, much worse in some divisions than others (Engineering is mostly white men, marketing is mostly white women, etc). People With Disabilities aren't really seen, and it might have something to do with the office space not being PWD accessible. For a Durham company, the staff directory is remarkably caucasian. There is almost no such thing as a career path here. Unless you got in early, you might (if you're lucky) make it to the first line of management. Those who have made it that far tend to get stuck. There's been quite a lot of attrition since the acquisition. My star ratings take into account that this is NetSuite we're talking about here, not Bronto. Bronto doesn't exist anymore as anything more than a branch of NetSuite's org chart.Continue reading

Great CultureMar 1, 2016 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The culture is relaxed and welcoming. There's a sense of work hard/play hard but different from my previous employer - there's more professionalism and harder work to go along with the play hard/great culture. The office space is amazing and really allows you to get to know your team and be comfortable while working. There's all kinds of areas you can relax in to get some work done if you need to get away from your desk. The transparency in the Quarterly Business Review with the CEO and other leaders has been refreshing and the WIN program (Women in NetSuite) fostering women's leadership is motivating and energizing.
The new hire orientation could have been better but I understand there's still a transition happening between combining NetSuite ways and Bronto.Continue reading

It’s like being at school and nursery againAug 13, 2018 - Sales in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Product training is good and thorough (videos, webinars etc). - Fellow comrades in the trenches are an absolute pleasure to work with and allows one to tolerate the madness for longer than would otherwise be possible. - Good path to move upwards in your career to NetSuite and Oracle - Reasonably good packages on offer as a new employee however once you’re in, pay rises and promotions are tiny and few and far between.
Bronto Software is a company that purports to have a culture of "openness, approachability and transparency". After working there for well over a year I can confirm that this is most certainly not the case. Every company has a culture that is ultimately enforced from the top down. Bronto is of no exception, and it is a pity that the current management team of this business is such that the attempted manipulation and over-exertion of control of its employees is never ending. The reader will of course not just look at this post, but will see other reviews specifically regarding the London office citing similar issues: manipulation, mind games, micro-management, limited flexibility. Staying late is an expectation (even after individual targets have been met). Strict policy to be at your desk at 8:30am or you’re getting in trouble. If you are coming to Bronto to work in sales, then be very careful. The turnover is absolutely insane like nothing I have ever seen, and they have not hit their new business target for several quarters - (Note to management: there is only a certain number of times you can blame others for this before you need to be looking in the mirror as to where the problem truly lies). I must also echo the previous reviewer's comments regarding the supposed Graduate Scheme. Any graduate reading this should be absolutely clear on the fact that there is no graduate program. None. There is nothing. You might think you're coming to work for Oracle (because legally, that would be correct) but make no mistake that you will not go on a single industry-standard training course, and you won't be spending any time in other departments. You will be sitting there, at your desk, learning absolutely nothing and making 60 dials a day "or else". Note: Many people leave to go to NetSuite or Oracle. None have come the other way. Don’t let this or the previous reviews put you off. With new management, the company has a lot of potential.Continue reading
