    I have been working at Qlik full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Amazing product and technology. Absolute best in the market, but it's a hidden gem. Very few know the true power and value of the associative engine. * Competitive pay. For those that have been here for a while, the pay is very good. * Great work/life balance. Flexible work hours, remote working, and time off is excellent.

    Cons

    * Cost cutting. Since going private, the focus is on cost cutting and short-term revenue. Very little focus on customer success, training and enablement, or doing the right thing. * No culture/identity. The Swedish culture and Qlik's core values were very unique and a huge differentiator. Those core values are no longer here at Qlik. Instead, everyone just works on their own things, rarely communicates or seek advise or help, and nobody seems to care anymore. It's just a job. * Management. Very out of touch with the people, technology, and customers. Rarely visit customers. The same senior managers that got us into this mess (e.g. grossly missed in Q4/2015, which caused the stock to drop and ultimately lead to Qlik going private) are the ones still leading the company. They made $Ms on the stock, more $Ms when Qlik went private, and have more $Ms in stock in the new private company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, partners, and customers. There's major attrition and nothing is being done to acknowledge or address it. Partners have built businesses off of Qlik and they're now moving/adopting new technologies. Customers are screaming for new features, but we go off and build completely different things. Unfortunately, the competitors have better management and as a result, Qlik is losing market share to them.

    Pros

    CEO, Mike Capone has embedded a thriving culture here at Qlik. Truly a blessing to be lead by a top leader in this industry. Great company to work for due to the work/life balance. Major growth with the strategic acquisitions made. Pay is respectable.

    Cons

    None so far, all is well.

    Pros

    I have not met a single person I did not like and appreciate; the team is supportive, curious, and generous throughout each department and at every level of the organization.

    Cons

    None! Truly it's a pleasure working here and growing.

    Advice to Management

    The mentorship network could use a little re-vamping, but otherwise totally on track to keep an amazing group growing!
