    I have been working at PagerDuty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great product with good product-market fit.
    Inclusive diverse employee population.
    Agile, flexible, growth mindset - this is a company that is not afraid of experimenting and changing.
    High energy levels and determination to get things done.

    Cons

    If you don't like change, you won't like it here. PagerDuty is a forward looking company that is growing across all dimensions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and maintain the high levels of transparency

    Pros

    Great product solving real problems and improving customers lives. Brilliant, caring teammates and experienced leadership team.

    Cons

    Very few to name. A little fast-paced like any growing tech company, but more mature and stable than most on similar trajectories. Strong female leadership helps a lot!

    Great product with happy customers. Culture that values inclusivity and diversity. Collaborative working environment. Growth means lot of different things to work on.

    Ambiguity that comes with working at any fast growing company. If you can't deal with that, probably not the right place.

    Set a bold vision and have a relentless focus on execution. Continue to hire great talent.

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

    Pros

    Great working environment, awesome people. I made a ton of friends here and learned a lot. PagerDuty is serious about maintaining a healthy work/life balance, has a fantastic product and is absolutely the market leader. Their benefits are top notch, and they do their best to keep everyone happy.

    Cons

    Management is too scared of the small competition and is focusing too much on shipping new features to tick boxes instead of polishing existing features. Very little refactoring was allowed at the time that I left, and technical debt was becoming a serious problem. Numerous new features were shipped as a bare minimum skateboard and then left to languish unfinished forever.

    Advice to Management

    Let your engineering team do what they need to do in order to make the product maintainable for the long term! You have great short term vision but need to focus on product life beyond the skateboard.

    Pros

    Diversity, Inclusive, work life balance. You will work with great people at a growing company with really great benefits. Free catered lunches every day and full breakfast on Wednesdays. Fully stoked kitchen with drinks, snacks, cereals and a large variety of items. Unlimited coffee, Kombucha, Cold Brew and you can even make your own premium hot brews!

    Cons

    No 401k match, Lots of meetings. Teams can feel disconnected at times. Growing company going through growing pains. Need better tools to get the job done at times.

    Advice to Management

    Engage teams to mingle together and facilitate opportunities for teams to talk to each other with team building activities.

    Pros

    Our product is really good...people in general like it. The company culture is fairly "sales centric" aka we do a lot of things that puts strains on other parts of the company but people tend to do those things with out complaint. Team is split into new business and current business. Management is solid from SVP - Director level, lots of experience taking companies to next level. Excited for future.

    Management is encouraging of getting in front of customers and traveling in territory. Great win culture.

    Cons

    A lot of changing of direction but I think that has to do with evolution and growth to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to utilize the newer reps who came from outside. Set a level playing field as far as account mapping and quota responsibility.
