      Growing company, great to be a part of it

      Pros

      This company really cares about its employees and customers. That was true before COVID, and became even moreso since then. From the CEO on down, the message has been that employees should balance their work and home life by whatever means necessary, and whatever works for them will work for the company. The company's rapid growth is pretty incredible to watch. There is a lot of push to make processes better so they are scalable. In the background there are always lots of projects going on to better support the core business. Many teams are based in Portugal, but with US presence as well. Everyone is in the same boat in terms of working around multiple timezones, and is generally respectful of local working hours. Benefits are pretty good, including the potential for equity someday. For those in the US, healthcare cost is probably better than you are used to if you are single, and about average for family coverage. Holidays are local to each country, so employees in Europe get 2 or 3 more days than the US. Those who work remote can expense phone, internet, office supplies, etc.

      Cons

      For those in the IT department, the matrix-style organization of most of department makes you feel a little like the "I have 8 bosses" line from Office Space. Not necessarily a severe con, but definitely leads to feeling like you are pulled in multiple directions from time to time.

      Pros

      Good benefits. European culture HQ used to be Lisbon

      Cons

      Seems just about every team in U.S has turned over. From reps to managers. Endless revolving door of reps and teams leaving. Very few (like 10% making their quota). Difficult to sell against the big software companies (Microsoft, Salesforce etc) and a lot of nitch companies like OutSystems doing the same thing. Heavily competitive and difficult to stand out when all the competition has their own strengths and big software companies are already heavily engaged.

      Pros

      Benefits are generally good. Pre-covid, free trips to Portugal? Could be a good stepping stone to your next real job.

      Cons

      Work life balance for field sales is non-existant due to new economical pressures. Its a shotgun approach to new pursuits. Leadership continues to add like-minded individuals living in their past at places like Okta, Splunk, etc. Do not welcome opinions or challenges of ideas. Quickly becoming a death-by-analysis field and sales organization. Little to no career growth, if you aren't hired at the highest position you desire here, don't believe the hype that you will be promoted. All RVPs and Senior Directors are coming from outside in and only from firms like Splunk, Salesforce, or the Friends with Benefits program of senior leaders. If you aren't one of the few, you're an expendable cog in the wheel and be wary that whole teams have been fired on a whim.

      Pros

      One of first companies to react to COVID and closed offices quickly. Provides good support for home office equipment. No Atlanta office anymore.

      Cons

      Culture changed, not transparent, not friendly anymore. Turned into corporate hamster wheel and no longer cares. Most Senior Management in US now. What people say and what people do are two different things. Most people out for themselves or their friends. Lacks maturity and professionalism. No work/life balance. People are running away.
