    I have been working at Qlik full-time

    Pros

    Good work mates Good products In certain places a good work life balance

    Cons

    You will never get a decent raise of pay. Nor will you get any promotion unless you ingratiate yourself with some American boss. Company spends all money on new headquarters and buying other companies. Swedish soul has been lost. Management not caring about employees. All that was good with Qlik 5 years ago has gone.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility to work with different technologies and try new things, you'll learn a lot! There are many really smart folks working at Qlik. Friendly and open environment. People are professional and respectful. There's a good work/life balance and flexibility of working from home. Perks such as different snacks, coffee, beer, and Fika (twice a week) which includes fruit, veggies and other bits and bites. Modern office and hardware.

    Cons

    The company is still going through a transition, there's lots of turn over which can sometimes affect morale. For a while there were often shifts in the direction of the product which can lead to frustration.

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

    Pros

    - Occasionally decent work life balance - Nice office - Good product

    Cons

    I write this based on working numerous years at the company and I am thankful I left. This is a genuine reflection about the company's bad practises. - Terrible management and leadership - you will be first to be fired when the business experiences bumps. The management have no clue what to do and are busy protecting themselves or drinking cakes and champagnes until it begins to hit the fan. - Terrible ownership (Thoma Bravo) - No career progression - Promotions based on favouritism - Wrong people get fired while those who are good at covering their backs continue to make a living not contributing much - Recently fired their own successful CEO Lars Bjork - Number of key people left as soon as Thoma Bravo acquired. Seems like a good decision as there have been mass redundancies. - Thoma Bravo - not great owners This is not a good company to work for even though the product is good.
