    "Very political for a young company, good product for SMEs but will never match SFDC"

    I have been working at SugarCRM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good size company to join if you can make it work for you.

    Cons

    I can speak specifically for the international business based out of Munich.

    The team is quite young and most of the people that have worked there for some time are really good people. But as the company has grown they have recruited a range of senior managers that seem to have very few skills in companies of this size, who are almost exclusively from much bigger companies and much more concerned with and skilled in internal politics than operational excellence. Hence the recent swathe of people jumping ship or being forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the skills you've had in the company for years, and promote them to positions of power. They care about the company way more than newcomers.

    I worked at SugarCRM full-time

    Pros

    Some smart great people to work with if you get below the egos of senior mgmt. Product has potential in the mid market but they will never come close to SFDC.

    Cons

    It's a bit like a cult and if you don't assimilate you will be on the outside. People get promoted by threatening to quit and most of sr mgmt can't get out of the way of their egos to get done what needs to be done to make the company very successful.

    Advice to Management

    Humble yourselves and look at the potential of the people below you. For a small company the politics are unmatched. Either have an open door policy or don't but stop pretending you do when it is really only for those that agree with you.
