    Pros

    Not worrying about breakfast and lunch anymore is great. Coworkers are really easy and fun to work with. Direct management really looks out for you.

    Cons

    Company seems to be unsure of what to do about financial situation, and different departments don't seem to be aligned.

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

    Pros

    Domo has great benefits (free lunch, snacks, and soda.) The environment is very much a work hard, play harder place with no micromanaging.

    Cons

    Because Domo is a new company, there are growing pains as they figure out how many employees are needed for each position.

    Advice to Management

    Give annual raises.

    Pros

    The workplace feels like a community. Everyone is trying to help each other get their work done. There is mutual respect and camaraderie between each employee, regardless of what team you are on.

    Cons

    Not much so far. Seems like the only thing negative is the constantly growing atmosphere. This company is recently out of startup which means they are prepped and ready to grow as needed.

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

    Pros

    The company benefits are amazing. Not only are the insurance and 401K very good, but they also provide a lot of benefits like free lunches and dinners and completely stocked kitchens. To round out the benefits packages are things like free a free tablet and maternity clothing allowance.

    They throw the best parties ever. From tailgate parties to offsite meetings to the annual company holiday party, all are the best. Everything Domo does is first-rate. Their annual user conference, Domopalooza, is the best technology conference I have been to, and I’ve been to a lot. Domo puts a lot of time, effort and money into their image and it shows.

    Finally, the product is beautiful and really valuable if you use it right. Like most products, people never utilize things to their full benefit, but it can be amazing for those who do.

    Cons

    The amazing benefits are ultimately overshadowed by the things that are not right with the company. While Domo has raised insane amounts of private equity (and now money from an IPO) they are still in a critical financial state due to big issues in the company.

    They have burned through cash so quickly that it’s bound to have an impact on their future growth. Their target customers at Fortune 500 companies will shy away from making huge investments in a company that is in such a precarious financial situation. Their burn rate needs to be seriously addressed as they are finding money harder to come by and revenues are not growing nearly as quickly as they need.

    Turnover at key leadership positions seems to be an issue. The sales and marketing teams, in particular, are in a constant state of turnover as the company seeks to get the ‘right mix’ in order to meet very aggressive growth goals. Turnover is impacting their ability to become efficient and develop a refined sales/marketing engine.

    There is a big ‘Inner-circle culture’ at Domo, almost like a fraternity/sorority mindset in college. If you are in the inner-circle things are great, but for those on the outside, it’s a struggle. Insiders get benefits that others don’t including promotions and invitations to exclusive parties thrown at the CEO’s home.

    Finally, the CEO is very involved in every aspect of the business. His involvement often puts a lid on creativity within the company. People are hired to bring in their expertise but are limited in their ability to do their job because of this control.

    Advice to Management

    Quit burning through cash at such an alarming rate. Much of the spending is frivolous. You are an unprofitable startup so you should act like one. Treat all employees like valuable contributors, not just those in the elite, inner-circle. Hire people to do a job then let them do it without burdensome control.

    For all its negativity in the press prior to their IPO - the product is awesome.

    Cons

    Management has lost their way.
