    Pros

    CallidusCloud is a place where you can reap the benefits of your effort and engagement. There is not shortage of opportunity at the company as it continues to grow and more exciting acquisitions are made. What makes it so rewarding is that you get out of it what you put into it, the same can not be said for many companies - I don't think everyone realizes this. The leadership team are approachable and have done a great job I think - In the few years Ive been here, the company has continued to grow, teams have got bigger and the results have got better. The ESPP is a great benefit.

    Cons

    There is not much handholding on offer here. There is a great opportunity to learn and advance your career, but you will need to be proactive and drive it.

    There is lots going on at CallidusCloud and in some cases, there are not enough resources to achieve everything you want to. So be prepared to run hard and prioritize - if you can then you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, it is working. Keep going with the quarterly all hands, they are fun and informative.

    Pros

    It could be great

    Cons

    The worst managers you can find anywhere. They have very little experience and often extremely arrogant and unpleasant to deal with. Being cursed at by certain senior VPs can be common place. Services is the worst place to be, you get no support, no praise, little bonuses and no stock.

    Advice to Management

    find new jobs. Unless there are changes this will sink

    I worked at CallidusCloud full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free soda, water, coffee, and some snacks
    Monthly lunch, beer bash, and ice cream
    Beautiful office space
    Holiday parties at the office

    Cons

    It's run like a 1990's software company. Very top heavy and hierarchical. There is no "partner" with your manager. People run around like chickens trying to kiss up to the CEO, while he talks about all the expensive cars he drives. It's not a casual, open dialogue type place with upper management, though they try to talk the game that it is.

    As with any company, your experience is based on the group you work in, and I'm sure there are some great groups, and people to work with at CallidusCloud, but I also see a lot of weird groups. Just weird setups, weird and poor communication to team. Back stabbing, etc..
    While there is a beer bash, most people grab their beer and go back to their desk to keep working (so again old school trying to be youthful)
    While there are Christmas and Halloween events, same thing. Very few people attend, and those that do grab food and go back to their desk...
    I just can't find a better word to describe it than weird.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be modern, and be modern. Stop the old school, "fear your boss" atmosphere.

    I have been working at CallidusCloud full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Here at CallidusCloud, you have to be somewhat your own boss. Meaning, you are free and encouraged to participate and even lead in your area of expertise. With the companies growth it seems like the sky is the limit for opportunity, but you have to grab your opportunities and hang on. Over all, I have been so privileged to be a part of these amazing people that make up CallidusCloud. Up, Up and away to the top 5 Cloud Company arena.

    Cons

    I would like to see more actual PM organization used to bring various department and company initiatives together in a common effort. We could do even more than we are right now and more efficiently. More consistency in cross collaboration tools.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce teaming between departments with the VP/SVP leadership. Any barriers to team work and cross departmental collaborations should be quickly squashed.
