    Pros

    When you travel, it is all good.

    Cons

    When you work from home it is not good at all, the assumption is that you are kicking back

    Advice to Management

    Stop charging so much per hour, then you wouldn't loose the business to different companies

    Pros

    smart people and good internal systems. Downtown San Jose location was convenient. Free baseball tickets was a nice perk.

    Cons

    company was going through a big transition (moving from enterprise sales to SaaS sales) so not a great time to be at the company e.g. quarterly layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and don't sugar coat the challenges

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology and some of the best and brightest employees anywhere. Functional groups form strong teams becoming a second family. The working environment is good and should be improving with the move to Pleasanton.

    Cons

    With the struggle for companies be profitable in this economic downturn we have undergone too many employee reductions and have lost good talent. It is also exhausting for employees to produce the same amount of work with half the resouces.

    Advice to Management

    More and consistant communications; possibly "Executive Notes" can be from any of the Executives providing an update on what their function is working on.

    Pros

    Callidus software has the strongest offering in the marketplace and an enviable list of marquis clients many of whom are included in the Fortune 500. More importantly, of these clients, 60% of them have been doing business with Calildus since early part of the decade (1999-2001). That is a tremendous vote of confidende in this era of rapid change.

    Cons

    Standard con for a small company includes less overall resources and support. While this is natural for any SMB, the rewards at Callidus far outweigh the risks.

    Advice to Management

    No one will ever complain of having too much information coming from product management. Although great strides have been made - a little more communication is a great thing for all employees.

    Pros

    Immediate manager is awesome. Never a boring day. Product 'stickiness' is amazing thus Callidus will be around for a long while. Core functionality of product works great when rules are followed, designs are implemented properly and reason is observed. Company has redoubled efforts to achieve profitability. Company has survived (thus far) in the worst economic downturn in recent history...

    Cons

    We act like startup, but we operate like a large company. We need to operate like a startup and act like a large company. RIFs cut too deep into the talent pool; many of our best have joined the competition. It would be better if we weren't fighting ourselves.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the basics and set the focus on 'value'. You have the winning product; sell it. Eliminate the distractions. Admit your mistakes; act with humility (don't show humility) and share your plan to move forward while keeping your top talent.

    Einstein once said, "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."

    Pros

    Technology leadership, work ethics, challenging work - leader in sales compensation management software. Gain knowledge in developing SaaS based product line.

    Cons

    Unable to breakthrough financial issues. Regular layoffs that affect employee morale. Lack of career growth due to constant downsizing and scrapping projects.

    Advice to Management

    While making the company profitable is a very good idea, proper planning and development of tools is better in the long run than cost optimization via layoffs.

    Pros

    Callidus was adept at hiring quality people for thier positons which made working there easy. Solid bunch of professional people.

    Cons

    Sometime communication was limited between upper management and lower mangement. Overall there was very little in the con department in describing Callidus.

    Advice to Management

    At this time I wouldn't presume to offer advice on how to run a company that size. Almost everything they did, policy wise, was to make the company more proftiable and kept employee moral in mind.
