    I have been working at OutSystems full-time

    Pros

    Fun (but noisy) environment in a cool office with nice perks. People are really hard working and love the product. The product is great and the market is growing. (You can read lots of cool stuff in the other reviews...)

    Cons

    Culture is vanishing as the company grows. Some top performers were promoted to positions in which they are simply not great at (sorry), the growth wasn't well planned, and the ones that stayed in similar positions were left completely overwhelmed with work. Salaries are average for a company that wants to hire top talent. Some of best employees are starting to feel unhappy. One of the top reasons is the way people...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people. Be fair. Praise teams not individuals. Lose the self promotion culture. Avoid at all cost promoting arrogant people and people with communication issues.

    I have been working at OutSystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Haven't had a job I enjoyed this much in a very long time. OutSystems has a tremendous product, effective leadership, and smart people all around driven to make a difference.

    Cons

    Not enough time to do all the things I want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking how we can improve.

    I worked at OutSystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my colleagues and they have great benefits

    Cons

    I joined because the culture endorsed outspoken professionals. They encouraged people to ask 'Why' but yet when you do so, they overrule it. Management sees their way and nobody else's. I quickly realized I was an executor vs. a strategist when my boss told me what to do on a regular basis. She clearly wanted no other opinions and for her team to do things her way. In addition she stated she had the management team 'wrapped...

    Advice to Management

    Don't think your ideas are the be all, end all. Acknowledge the skills of your employees - you hired them after-all. And if you want to recruit a team of people who challenge the status quo and ask why, it will never work if you don't take action or even acknowledge their 'why' is valid.
