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

Pros

Recognition of ideas and thought, ability to work closely with Product and Professional services teams, good team collaboration, culture was close knit until the IPO and now there's no culture

Cons

Poor Strategic Management, Company tried to change culture by hiring folks from Consulting industry but never paid attention to the dramatic cultural shift that happened. Processes changed from normal to over-engineering making it difficult to get work done. Company hired too many higher level folks in Management who do not know anything about the product, resulting in a deadly spiral, competition has heated up and Customers are not happy because of pushy company management.

Advice to Management

Get rid of all the fat at the top of the organization, reduce the # of levels in the company, make it more flat. Software companies should have more engineers and less managers, let creativity thrive and do not stop innovating.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are good to work with

    Cons

    No 401K match
    Horrible vacation policy. Effectively you start working at Model N with about 10 days
    No sick days
    Nitpicky expense reimbursement policy
    Expense reports take 2-3 hours to complete due to convoluted process

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Listen to your customers and stop developing code in a box. Plan your sales and execute. Dont be afraid to take the road less traveled
