    Model N likes people who dive in and get hands dirty. If you want real experience this can be it. New Salesforce.com products and agreements.

    Executive turnover. 3 CFOs in 4 years. No VP of HR. Things are changing fast so it is hard to know what is going on.

    Raise the tech and biz exp of people in the field. This will make customer satisfaction go up. Projects will go better.

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

    Pros

    The work was consistently interesting, and most of my colleagues were thoughtful, engaging professionals. Overall, the job was really quite pleasant.

    Cons

    Senior management was inept at best, running around trying to chase the latest trend in business news. They lacked direction and failed to articulate a clear strategy or abide by one. The rot started at the top.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the CEO with someone who knows how to manage an executive team; hire more talented senior leaders with successful track records of managing companies making more than $100 Million.

    Pros

    There are some great nice and smart people there but they are not allowed to do their jobs. The CEO is a tyranical intellectually arrogant founder who alienates everyone that matters. Lots of good people have left.

    Cons

    Would not recommend anyone to join especially in a position of leadership. You won't be able to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Get a professional CEO.

    I have been working at Model N full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If your looking to be part of an ambitious mission to change a market segment, Model N is a great opportunity with lots of R&D investments about to hit the market. Model N has many fortune 100 customers that are committed to the long term company success. Very flat organization with many leadership opportunities.

    Cons

    Model N solves complex problems for important companies... until you understand the value proposition, it can be hard to follow day to day management decisions. People that don't get it get frustrated and leave. Be patient.... it takes about a year until thing really start to click.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to help more people see the light faster.

    Pros

    Learn to be a politician

    Cons

    Slave driver attitude, Reactive attitude in the marketplace

    Advice to Management

    I have been with Model N for some time now and have learned the hard way that there is little honesty in middle management. You have to look out for yourself at all times and watch for back stabbers. People have sacrificed their personal time to make Model N successful. Foreign workers in the US and those offshore have it even worse.
    Strongly advice anyone looking to join to weigh their options well
