    This is my dream job

    Apr 18, 2022 - Marketing 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Benefits: Competitive salary, fantastic health insurance (for U.S.), mental health days, unlimited PTO with a culture that encourages you to take it - Culture: Everyone is helpful, fun, and understands that there's a world outside of work. I've also never worked anywhere (in 15 years) that was so genuinely committed to DEI. - Work: I really enjoy my projects here. I also appreciate that everyone gets recognized for their ideas and the work they produce.

    Cons

    - This is hardly a dealbreaker, but there aren't consistent opportunities to get to know Medallians outside of your own team, such as hosting fun Slack channels or weekly (virtual) happy hours.

    Sell The Dream, Service The Nightmare

    Jul 30, 2022 - Customer Success in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Good work-life balance -Fully remote work life is encouraged and supported -Equitable pay for some positions -Good people in HR that genuinely care for employee well-being -Lots of smart people at Medallia -Plenty of opportunity for CSMs to get in front of customers and shine

    Cons

    -Operates in seemingly constant state of chaos despite being a 21 year old company -CEO is a pure sales guy who brags about his toys and homes in all-hands meetings as a way to inspire the sales masses -More celebration and focus on Formula 1 marketing partnerships than things that actually matter...like our customers. -Tons of turnover and attrition since company went private in '21, massive loss of institutional knowledge -Customers are sold the dream scenario for products without realizing they need to invest in services hours, then CS is left to deal with the nightmare fallout post purchase -Medallia continues to buy other companies with no focused vision or outcome aside from potentially going public again in a few years(?)

    If you're on a big account or have a difficult client, get ready for a poor work/life balance

    Aug 6, 2022 - Technical Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Everyone is normally very nice and always willing to help - I've gotten the chance to work with very smart and capable coworkers

    Cons

    - Have had to give up Friday nights and cancel many plans after work for having to work late - Currently the company is having issues with people resigning or leaving Medallia and it's causing huge strains across the Professional Service teams - So far when the company makes plans for trainings or take team members out for lunch, I don't have any time to be able to attend or take advantage of those times with the workload that's on my plate. - Yes they are many challenges that can help you develop your problem solving skills but get ready for very convoluted systems and rushed implementations that have you mentally drained day in and day out.

    Good place to work

    Jul 20, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    CEO genuinely seems to advocate for employees interests (healthcare, commutes, 401k, etc.) Engineering seems relatively solid, with a lot of things done in-house which gives greater hands-on experience

    Cons

    Some teams focused on legacy product maintenance, execs have a bit of typical CEO-speak communication.

    After buyout there was a rush to the door

    Jul 27, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Was a fun place to work for a while

    Cons

    After the buyout anyone worth a damn movesd quickly to the door, and what was left became a toxic environment. For a company that markets themselves as an employee experience company, they ignored the internal feedback of their own employee experience

    Good Place to Work, but losing some of it's shine

    Jul 15, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    High quality of professionalism between peers, dynamic environment with a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    Ever since the Thoma Bravo takeover, Medallia has been squeezing its professional services organization to deliver more with less resources.

    I would avoid Sales

    Jul 23, 2022 - Sales Director in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Very bright and engaging people - Company focus on well being of employees - The solution is top notch, but more expensive than peers - Sales comp is aligned to industry if you're able to make your number (big IF)

    Cons

    - There's 2 camps for sales. Those that been here for multiple years and those that haven't. You either get treated with preference (which is earned) or you sink or swim. Sales management understands this by hiring more and more sales people knowing that they will lose a lot of new people - Very little leads - you grind it out all the time. Unless you're assigned some established accounts - Sales management is a very Bro Culture - very insular, little transparency and self serving. It feels disingenuous - Company growth strategy seems to be buying smaller companies and driving business with their products -Horizon looks murky due to economy - this is not a must have solution
