    Pros

    New Relic has been a great place to work. When I joined, the training and support was top notch. The team that surrounded me were immensely supportive. The product works well and the New Relic name is established, making it much easier to build strong partnerships. Professionally, it has opened new opportunities for me and I feel that we truly lean into our employees to help grow our careers. Personally, the benefits, work/life balance and people make this a job I enjoy. That's rare to say nowadays.

    Cons

    None that I can think of that is unique to New Relic. Every company of this size, in this industry has the same things.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits and generous holiday allowance Self development courses and allowance There are some talented people working there, which are genuinely lovely

    Cons

    1. Micromanagement from the very top down, which stifles growth and diversity. If you are a talented person, you will hate it here as you will be told what to do and what you are told to do, often goes against good industry practices. You will hate it at first, then start to lose self respect as you have to conform. However, if you want an easy life, good benefits, just say yes to leadership and you will do well here. 2. Lack of excellence and process in many departments - things are disorganized, changing quickly and on a whim of an SVP or a GVP and leadership changes quickly. With each change, layoffs and restructures are common, so it is hard to progress in career. 3. Just like everything else, firings and promotions are done quickly, without much consideration and without due process. If a manager doesn't like you or a new leadership figure doesn't think you are good enough in a role, you will be replaced overnight. There are some talented people stuck in lower positions, while others, who don't contribute anything of value, get promoted. Delivering excellence is often not appreciated, let alone rewarded. As a result, there is a lot of turnover. With that, knowledge of the product is also lost. Management will blame that on people and not bad management. 4. Leadership lacks vision and follows old and stale practices - such as shipping substandard changes to product, without considering input from customers and then changing things again when big customers complain. Speed over quality every time. 5. Obsessed with competitors instead of coming up with long term strategies to understand the landscape and all the customer types, in order to be better than competitors.
