    I have been working at OutSystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been with the company for nearly 2 years and it's been a very rewarding experience and a great team. OutSystems is far from perfect, as most rapidly growing software companies are... but the mix of culture/team/tech/total addressable market is very compelling here. - Customers and partners love the technology - The culture is unqiue and very positive. The Small Book is legit and followed every day. - The...

    Cons

    - Growing pains can get frustrating at times, but not unlike any other fast growing tech company. - Global brand awareness (especially in the USA) could use a shot in the arm.

    I worked at OutSystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    After you leave any job afterwards will seem like a dream.

    Cons

    A puppet show, managed by a Portuguese engineer ceo who believes he knows everything about how to run a company. Did a good job when it was a start up, now he is over his head and in a panic. CRO makes Milton Waddams from office space look like a genius. Net net is this is a culture of there is only one way to do things and if you don’t follow the recipe you are not competent.

    Advice to Management

    Goldman s and KkR should take a hard look at how this executive staff is running the show, audit some sales cycles and ask the C team to articulate the the plan for growth before the money plays a really long game of hide and seek with them.

    March 19, 2019Vice-President, People

    Thank you for sharing your frustrations and for being honest. For the past two years, the company has been growing at a very fast pace, leading to aggressive targets and changes that have been uncomfortable for those not accustomed to them. We take opinions like yours seriously and ...

    I worked at OutSystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Four+ years of my career's best and most satisfying years were spent at OutSystems. FANTASTIC crew, all of them. The engineers in Portugal are some of the smartest I've ever worked with. This company cares/cared about its people. People Ops is TOP NOTCH! I would do it all over again times 10, but... If you are lucky enough to get an offer, take it and don't look back. You will never regret having done so - as long...

    Cons

    OutSystems took $55MM from NorthBridge Growth Equity Partners ~1 year ago and the VC is having its influence on decision making and cost restructuring. For better or worse, many quality folks lay (terminated) in the wake of that decision. Northbridge and Paulo will have a great exit. Longtime (lifelong?) OutSystems contributors?... I hope, in the end, you are compensated for your contributions. Most of us will never...

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the eight small rules, Paulo, and to the team that helped you build this mighty machine! Reward THEM well, at least.

    Pros

    Growing fast, amazing product, analysts are starting to really pay attention now.

    Cons

    Chaotic times, full of change. Change can be good, but not if it's not well thought out. Growing pains. Small cultural divide between various regions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the product excellence, but don't get too cocky.

    I have been working at OutSystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I'm not sure why we received such a negative post recently. Perhaps a former employee who was not here for the incredible growth we are having. I am thrilled to be at OutSystems for more than a year now. I work in the Americas region. We have grown from only 6 to a team of over 40 in only 2 years. Customers in the Americas have grown 3x in the same time period. Launching our application PaaS in 2013 has created even more...

    Cons

    Selling PaaS and application development tools is difficult for sure. Corporate IT is really set in their ways and don't want to change. Also, I don't live near the office in ATL and the commute is definitely a bummer. However, working in an office with smart, fun, energetic folks is a lot better than sitting in my basement working alone all day :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at OutSystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Outstanding product supported by the best culture of openness and honesty I have had the privilege to work in. Values truly describe how the company runs and how people think. Some of the brightest people I have worked with but also some of the most helpful and humble.

    Cons

    None so far. Normally after being in a company for a while you find the skeletons in the closet, not here!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to believe you can change the digital world.
