    I worked at Qlik (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is still okay to work for. It used to be a lot better, but they still hire people that are generally good, open, honest & want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Things really started changing after the acquisition. Employees were left in the dark about their futures, which led to a negative environment.

    Advice to Management

    You should share more of your strategic roadmap with your employees to foster camaraderie.

    Pros

    - Fun culture
    - Finally getting quality enablement content to sales team
    - Amazing product that is getting easier to sell
    - Pay and benefits on par with industry

    Cons

    - Uncertainty around private equity buyout
    - HR has numerous 'policies' around raises and promotions that are not just antiquated, but actually deter people from staying or trying to work their way up.

    Advice to Management

    - Start paying your non-sales employees, especially those working their way up and getting promoted, like you actually want to keep them and care that they contribute to the company.
    - Keep making the amazing content for sales you have been recently - the mobile books and QED stuff is better than I have had in any previous sales role.

  8. "Opportunity but flawed execution"

    Pros

    Disruptive product, business focus, passionate people. Qlik just needs to improve its delivery, content and message to become the analytics platform of the future

    Cons

    Sales churn, culture gets diluted the further west you go. Made a name challenging traditional BI by calling them platforms, now you are becoming a platform.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the value

    Pros

    Qlik is an incredible company; the core values and products are one of the kind and really help customers make smart decisions. The culture and product are top notch.

    Cons

    Unable to focus and listen to market and customers

    Advice to Management

    Grow your employees and do all possible to promote within. After about 2 -3 years at a position people get bored and want to try other things rather than bring in people from other big companies and letting them ruin the culture allow people grow to other roles. Also invest heavily in new technologies; the qlikies are stuck in the past in old technologies. Internal training is a necessity.

    Pros

    Loved the green culture. Great technology helped create new market in business intelligence. Solid seed and grow strategy in the emerging years.

    Cons

    Superior technology with inferior marketing which allowed inferior solution to become market leader. Cumbersome go to market strategy for such a young company.

    Advice to Management

    Cloud solution and surround technology with business applications.
