    I have been working at Model N full-time

    Pros

    Pros:
    - No micromanagement
    - Quick growth in roles if you're willing to work hard
    - Smart people to work with. Generally, everyone is a pleasure to work with.
    - Good managers within GCS with people who really understand the product and the industry.
    - Catered lunches on Friday.
    - Opportunity to work across multiple teams.
    - Yoga available for those at HQ.
    - Ping pong tournaments.
    - Most people are interested in the betterment of the company and the products.
    - Interesting niche that opens the door to the Life Sciences industry.
    - Every project is different, so you are constantly learning.
    - Upbeat pace.
    - Willingness to create programs/plans to keep people happy.

    Cons

    Cons:
    - Salary needs to be fought for.
    - Architecture of the product needs to be looked at and improved upon to improve product quality.
    - Not enough activities to build happy employees and team comradery.
    - Difficult to work with an offshore PD team in India. People based out of the stateside tends to sacrifice more time than India.
    - Benefits are okay. Coverage could be much better for a company in the tech sector of Silicon Valley.
    - No 401k matching.
    - Need to constantly fight for work life balance, otherwise management will just over work you.
    - Needs more technical innovation and investment into technical innovation.
    - Cheap on handing out shares to employees outside of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees within professional services. They are the ones that constantly interact with your customers.
    - Your employees at the end of the day need to be kept happy if you expect to see results. No one appreciates having to work long hours and yet never get recognized for it. Benefits, compensation, and a career path needs to be improved upon in order to retain and gain employees.
    - Improve on product quality. There seems to be a huge disconnect between the people building the product and the people actually delivering it.

    Pros
