Approves of CEO

Pros

The people! Company has some of the best and brightest working there. Great teamwork atmosphere and a great product. There are still some members of the executive team that helped the company grow from early stage startup whose drive for results and actions keep the company going. Used to be a major focus on customer success so long-term clients are very happy. Huge focus on career development and learning (depends on department).

Cons

The people. Company started hiring anyone that worked at Oracle after IPO. Low performers can stay forever even in sales as long as they politic with their boss or know someone that came in with new senior management. Mission is put quarterly calls first, customer and employee satisfaction not essential. Merit and bonuses promised but delayed. Providing new ideas only allowed with proper title. Talent hoarding occurs often in departments.

Advice to Management

Switch politics with performance. Or vice versa.

    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in New York, NY
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Growing market and the opportunity to be part of a company that was interested in taking a gamble to capture it.

    Cons

    Too much propaganda and not enough realism. Most opportunities were given to those close to corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the smart people across the company to help drive the strategy. Many of them probably know more then you would think.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I like the software and the talent management work I did there; I was trained on their new products and was heavily involved with its testing prior to lay off. So great!... while it lasted.

    Cons

    You can say its a great culture; but in the end they did not support their creed of: fostering innovation, teamwork, passion for customers and the focus on execution.

    Advice to Management

    No A$$HOLE rule should apply to management (Lars) and it does not; also and there really is no senior management, just followers of Lars edicts
