    Pros

    Been with the company for 6 months and loving it.
    Really good leadership across sales.
    My manager takes the time to train and mentor me and demonstrates a genuine interest in my success.
    Just closed the year with the average attainment of the sales org being over 120% .
    Good food and great coworkers.

    Cons

    Not ideal if you are on public transportation
    Leaders who will constantly push you to do better.. is that good? bad?

    Pros

    They have a great software, smart engineers and developers. CEO, CTO, Product chief are excellent

    Cons

    The CRO is terrible, underachiever, aggressive, bad hiring decisions, the sales team is going backwards. Operations are sinking as well. Bad brain drain is happening.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the Sales and Operations, make people accountable for what they bring to the table.

    When hiring mangers make sure that they are a good fit for the role and have some experience actually managing. Don't just try and fill the position with the first person who applies.

    Pros

    Focused leadership, fantastic product, great people. Centrally located, diverse without having to try so hard, fast paced and cutting edge service and technology. Peak job experience and I have worked for many companies small and large in this Valley. Could not recommend more for those who are capable and have grit. Plus they let you bring your dogs here!!!

    Cons

    I have to work out more to shed the lbs from all the free lunches, and food always available. Fast pace with good work life balance, but not for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on building diverse A player teams and double down on innovative Machine Learning!

    I have been working at Sumo Logic full-time

    Pros

    Every day free lunch, great product, amazing market...outside of that, its hard to say. There are a few very smart people that work here. The office vibe is friendly, and they even allow you to bring your dog.

    Cons

    Company has no direction, go to market strategy is changed every quarter. Zero chance of promotion or career growth. Executive team is very disconnected from what is happening on the ground- both from employee and customer perspective. All new management and 90% hired from HP which is where the CEO was before. Boys club?!

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times, and realize you are not a fraternity. Do more to keep the good talent engaged and happy.
