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

    Pros

    Model N has some of the smartest people in town working for them. You are absolutely judged by your coworkers for your contributions. The people here are willing to share ideas and you are encouraged to try new things. I have learned a ton since working here

    Cons

    We are a software company with a substantial technical debt. The good news is that we are a leader in the revenue management space, the bad news is 80% of our revenue comes from a legacy product.

    Advice to Management

    We need to establish and share a clear vision of our direction and next steps. Our employees need to better understand where were are going and how we plan to get there.

    I worked at Model N full-time

    Pros

    I worked for Model N for a year following acquisition of the company I worked for. The work was challenging and the growth potential limited only by individual desire. The high tech management team was engaged, focused, competent and supportive of employees

    Cons

    Lots of work, big workloads but not more so than similar environments I have been in

    Advice to Management

    Work to understand root causes of attrition and stabilize it

    I worked at Model N full-time

    Pros

    Targeted market, global presence, a number of smart people working there. Transforming to cloud solutions is promising so hopefully that works out well. Company was able to go IPO, though stock hasn't performed.

    Cons

    Trying to modernize old school apps proves to be challenging without total re-writes. A number of good people have left, particularly after the IPO.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are some highly talented individuals who care about their customers and the success of the company. The original products were good and well received in the marketplace.

    Cons

    The Captain of the Ship (CEO) was fired. There is lots of turn-over in management that leads to chaos. Policies and procedures change overnight without informing the worker bees. The product quality is terrible and is very buggy. The work environment is very stressful and we work long hours will little recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Create a long lasting vision for the company, minimize the number of product platforms, create a working Salesforce strategy, and establish a quality environment in which good people can succeed.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Model N compensation is on par with the industry standard
    2. There is a flexibility in the work hours, so it will be helpful if we have some personal commitments.
    3. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    The job requires more travel, since the product has to be implemented at the client place.

    Advice to Management

    You have a very good leadership quality. It would be great if we get more customers

    Pros

    Model N truly, honestly cares about their employees. They listen, they treat me like a human, not a number.

    Cons

    Nothing to complain about! I have worked there for a year and am truly satisfied. I have not had a raise since I have started, that would be nice :)

    I have been working at Model N full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people in the company that are very open and personable. I would consider this somewhat 'flat', at least is the LS PS side of things. Although, this does depend on the team/project at the time.

    Cons

    They should standardize the interview process, it doesn't make sense to me to have certain candidates going through 3-5 levels of interviews AND performing a case study while others only are interviewed by one person with no assessment of skill and hired on the spot. This is absolutely ridiculous! Also, they need to standardize the whole training process as well. Not everyone receives the same kind of opportunity and that stinks.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on establishing a methodology first and then hire like crazy. It's not organized at all.
