    I have been working at Sumo Logic full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    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.

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

    Pros

    . The people! I have worked for Sumo Logic for nearly six months and I am impressed with the people and how they welcomed and enabled me. There are a lot of companies who talk about "people" being important. This company lives it.
    . I am excited to play a small part in helping make this company successful. The company is growing and adding new employees to just about every department. Revenues continue to grow, helping us move towards IPO. An exciting time indeed!

    Cons

    A contrast between how welcoming some people were on my first day and how one leader behaved during my orientation. This leader is not a good representation of Sumo Logic

    Advice to Management

    None. Good job all around.

    Pros

    Product is amazing, and continues to improve at a rapid pace. Leadership is aligned with the product and continues to add talented and accomplished sales leadership. Free food, colleagues are good people, and a very positive outlook.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and product expansion means it can be hard for some team members to keep up with the additional functionality.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to align the team worldwide, recruit industry leaders, and listen to our customers and the market as we expand the product.
