    I worked at Model N full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    What I found is that who your manager is will influence so much to it. Some of the managers were pretty good and thus would make it a great experience for you. Others did not have a good manager, making it a horrible experience. I had a very good manager that I got along with and she cared for my growth and opportunities. But this was not always the case for others and thus made it a more challenging time for them.

    Because my manager made it a good experience, I’m giving a 4 rating. Otherwise I would have given it a 3. Having said that, for others, the general advice is that you can’t join a company based on your manager because you don’t know when they’re going to leave. In my case it worked out as we worked together for a few years and made a good impact together.

    In Product Development, we generally had a pretty good process and a way of working. It was a good balance between working in a modern SDLC and knowing we had to deliver products to the enterprise.

    There are some pretty strong people that had a good background which help steer the business and engineering on the right track.

    Cons

    There needs to be more investment with people managers so they are truly people managers. There were many managers who did not seem ready to be managers.

    Often times the business was promising functionality to customers by a certain date before we did a true vetting and ensuring we can meet it. This put unnecessary pressure on timelines and you know what happens there in software.

    Product direction was also unclear. It often went back and forth on which direction we were going and where we were going to invest our next eng dollars in.

    Also there was a lot of tech debt to deal with in our products. This made moving fast a bit challenging for engineering.

    Advice to Management

    I know the company needs to be tight on the budget and for the right reasons. But invest appropriately to ensure employees feel like they are taken care of.

    Have formal training for managers, especially new managers so they can learn about the company values and put it into practice. In addition, so they can learn how to grow employees.

    For the core values, list your company first on the list, instead of last on the list. I realize the rational that employees and the company should be over your self. However that does not sit well with most employees.

    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.

    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.
