    I worked at Model N full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was part of the Business Development Marketing Team. The team was comprised of world-class professionals from events to demand gen to product marketing to business development to programs. The bulk of the team I belonged to is no longer there. The team put on the best Rainmaker yearly conference in the history of the company, with the highest attendance from Model N customers worldwide. We also had a number of significant opportunities as a direct result of the show and I was able to meet some of the key decision-makers and influencers to retaining Model N. It was a really enjoyable time.

    C level team and special Industry veterans (R/A) and some very smart new hires made it a pleasure to be at work.

    Free buffet lunch on Fridays provided just enough reminder that the company cares about you. There were other perks also, depending on the role.

    Cons

    Limited markets for the products made it difficult for growth for the company. I've suggested expanding offerings into transportation, hospitality, retail, and supply chain markets. It's a bold idea but wasn't feasible then, perhaps will be. Just a Business Development Manager sourcing $3.5M opportunities.

    Limited employee engagement and development programs.

    Locations of the company appeared disjointed and not unified; locations did their own thing however with the approval of top management.

    At times, depending on your group you could never tell if you had job security.

    AC was cold enough to require a coat.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a more democratic and meritocratic environment with reward based on accomplishments of the person in that particular role; expand into new markets, recognize everyone in the organization from ground level and up.

    Pros

    Great team, flexible to family life. Fun culture

    Cons

    Tons of travel but to be expected in the role

    Advice to Management

    Would be great for employees to be more empowered. Sometimes the environment could be uncomfortable. Sales team is a great group of dedicated people.

    Pros

    Model N is a very relaxed and trusting company that definitely cares about their employees. Throughout my entire interviewing process, Niti, the HR recruiter was always available to answer any questions and went above and beyond to ensure that all the candidates are comfortable and informed. The introduction onsite visit was very interactive and we got to hang out at a bar to network with current employees afterwards. What made me decide to pursue my career at Model N is that every single person I've talked to thus far mentioned that it is the best company they've worked for, which shows a lot about company culture.

    Cons

    Since I have not officially started working at Model N, I cannot speak about the cons. The only downside of my interview experience is that there were some discrepancies in the case study.

    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.

    Pros

    Free lunch on Friday
    Good benefits
    Good work environment - hard work but also try to keep it fun

    Cons

    Work life balance seems to go away as you move up in the company - seems typical to most companies though.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to interact more with new hires/non management employees. Everyone is busy but take some time to go to social events and get to know the people who work for you.

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

    Pros

    - Collaborative culture with good work/life balance and core values
    - Career growth opportunities to step up into leadership roles, after less than 1 year ... "those who stay will be champions" - Bo Schembechler
    - New CEO (Ed Sander) is industry and category veteran, and Founder/Executive Chairman (Zack Rinat) continues to lead company forward

    Cons

    - Some VP/director-level leadership changes, which are growing pains for a 10%+ YoY growth company have led to short-term ambiguity (read: opportunity) for some roles
    - Company is best suited for entrepreneurial-type, hungry candidates ... be advised

    Advice to Management

    - Stay focused on customer success and employee success, as the Company has done for 16+ years

    Pros

    Great place if you want to make an impact and have a broader role. The enviro is very entrepreneurial, open to testing new ideas, delivers continuous innovation with products in a hot B2B SaaS space, leverages bleeding edge martech, and provides a supportive cross-functional team. If you like ownership, empowerment, change and can embrace new opportunities that emerge from it- this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a challenge (similar to any fast-paced, growing tech company) if you do not set boundaries.
