    Pros

    Amazing culture. Welcoming, helpful, and friendly. Smart people working to solve complex issues around machine data - with the primary goal of helping companies manage, maintain, operate, and secure their digital properties.

    Cons

    Need more standing desks.

    Pros

    SL is one of the few companies I have worked for that is transparent and actually encourages feedback. It's top down - they share negative and positive feedback directly with employees and make an active effort to improve at all times. I have been in sales for around 3 years and the processes and knowledge share here will no doubt help my career. Our product is technical, but what we are doing in the industry is really...

    Cons

    The only issues/concerns I have experienced here have been shared with the team and they are always making a conscience effort to improve. The culture here is awesome in that if you share a problem, they want to make sure you are heard and there's an initiative to reach a solution. For example, we are working on hiring more women in our Denver office and when executives come to Denver, they go out of their way to ask...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - maybe stand up desks in Denver, and optional reward work from home days would be cool :)

    Pros

    Strong product making a difference for customers. Great CEO and most of senior leadership is open, respectful, great to work with. The culture has been amazing, company is growing quickly. Big opportunity in a massive market for machine data analytics, riding the wave of migration to the cloud.

    Cons

    Culture at risk with new CFO. Cold, arrogant, dismissive. Her new second in command (her personal buddy she's worked with many times) seems to be the same - they are peas in a pod. It's been a great place for collaborating across leaders and teams. Hate to see us bring in leaders who won't listen and dismiss anyone who doesn't fit their personal narrow agenda. Why would we risk bad decisions and a lousy work environment...

    Pros

    Very solid MM/COMM sales segments of the business. Intelligent and thoughtful CEO Friendly coworkers New user conference, Illuminate, has helped create buzz and community

    Cons

    The product is great but we have minimal differentiation from our main competitor in the cloud. We're playing catch up to their 8-year lead and dominance in the Enterprise space. Sumo is primarily a MM/COMM focused company. We are not built to scale into the Enterprise from a marketing or strategy perspective and it shows nationally in our quota attainment. The only place we get business from is having a solid...

    Advice to Management

    Try tracking how much business in the ENT are being generated from marketing activities. We are only finding deals from inbound, previous customers and need much more help in this area to get to our goals. Fix outbound Spread customer installs more evenly. The only people hitting quota are getting there from large current customer growth and nothing else.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sumo Logic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Free lunch - Benefits - Snack bar

    Cons

    - No leadership - No training - Teach and train yourself - Management tells us to hit quota but doesn't do anything to help - Director is rarely in the office and dresses unprofessionally - Promotion path is unclear, constantly changes - Politics 24/7 - Fires employees for speaking up - Extremely low compensation

    Advice to Management

    Get new management, the SDR management is terrible. Director is of no help. The management is the clear definition of a boss and not a leader. Hard to approach, gets scolded/fired if we speak up. We need leaders, and mentors, not bosses. Colleagues are basically training one another here... Director constantly tells the team to hit stretch goal but does nothing to help us get there. The management inflates pipeline numbers...

    Advice to Management

    CLEAN HOUSE! The SDR management team is a bunch of clowns who make inappropriate comments and fight their reps progression rather than facilitate it. The culture drains reps of their desire to work hard since the path forward is uncertain. Your organization is run like the Cleveland Browns and its no wonder why there are attrition problems and hiring challenges to find the best talent in the Valley. Anyone with half...
