I have been working at BlackLine full-time

Pros

The work environment is collaborative, informal, and freewheeling. Still has something of a "start-up" feel in many ways. Lots of growth potential, both for the company and for individuals.

Cons

Growth can be chaotic and sometimes it feels like changes are communicated after they've taken effect. You will sometimes hear about something through the grapevine before there's any official communication.

Advice to Management

Keep going

    Pressure from management as Quarter End Approaches
    Borders on Bullying and sometimes public personal humiliation in to shaming you to hit the figures

    Advice to Management

    You are not the caring sharing company of 4 years ago, now you are just like every Public Company, look back to your core values

    I worked at BlackLine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, focused on the success of the business to a fault. Eat all you want kitchen, casual dress and chance to work from home to a limited degree. Share options. The company is growing rapidly and this is an exciting time for all!

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic structure and systems biased increasingly towards the goals of the US divisions. Have seen some quite ugly treatment of staff, some of which is borderline bullying.

    As businesses grow this quickly you get cultural and technical issues. The company seems only focused on addressing the latter as only the latter impacts the bottom line. Result - huge stress levels for many and high staff turnaround.

    A very questionable high level appointment & product looks dated.

    Attitude towards customers is poor.

    Advice to Management

    People and Customers are your best resource - treat them as such. It costs more but pays you back more.
