    Pros

    Onboarding

    A great company with wonderful people. I was provided a solid path to ramp quickly and be productive out of the gate. A renewed focus on building a great sales team. Great opportunity for anyone interested in driving a new SaaS category through the roof. Fantastic new management addition in 2017.

    Cons

    As with any fast paced company, process follows progress; like driving while changing tire at same time. However, The collaboration between the LOB’s to keep pace offsets it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the transparency & support of new employees. Role based on boarding is spot on. Great combination of old & new leadership. This is a place to be.

    Pros

    Demandbase offers work flexibility and a fun work environment with a great culture. It's exciting to be on the leading edge of innovating an ABM Platform.

    Cons

    There aren't many that come to mind. Being a part of a quickly growing innovative company require that you work hard but we also play hard so it's not really much of a con.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to recognize the parts of the business who may not be driving revenue as they are also an integral piece of the business. Keeping these groups happy will ensure to business runs well.

    Pros

    Small company + a big vision = a great place for you to make a big impact. It's easy to take on something that could truly change the the company. Management encourages taking risks. Teams work together well and are supportive of each other.

    Cons

    Things can move fast and change is constant so it can be difficult for someone who is not flexible or needs information fully-baked before acting. Expectations are high and it's a small company so you can't get by on minimum effort and have it go unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the transparency, honesty, and accessibility which has been so prevalent. Continue to recognize individual, team, and company success. Continue to ensure our customer's experience and success is core to everything we do.

    Pros

    Free lunch on fridays it’s average.

    Cons

    Hokiest and fakest bunch of people you will ever meet. Spending more money than they make, and the spiderboook acquisition is an undercover insurrection.

    Advice to Management

    Fire selves. Engineering management from software to DevOps is the worst.
