    Pros

    Solid alignment of corporate goals to all our functions. Feel like have never worked so hard, yet loving every minute of it. Transparency in communication, voicing ideas and objections and moving quickly to resolution and action. Wonderful, loyal customers. Belief in the product and value we provide to them as evidenced every day with the platform. I actually wake up excited on Monday morning to go to work. Go figure!

    Cons

    The culture and the drive to achieve is infectious. Just need to be mindful for oneself and peers to not let it become burnout from gunning so hard.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to not take for granted the wonderful culture clearly on display in HQ can dissipate the further you are geographically from the mothership. Keep up strong communication cadence and reminders of our values and "how we roll" to everyone out there on their own.

    Continue the fast pace of innovation to keep up with customer needs.

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

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 9+ months and shocked to see some of the comments on here. This is what I have seen.

    1) The culture is as good as people are saying. It's very diverse and nothing I have experienced before.

    2) Some bad hires were made and they have done a good job on letting them go.

    3) I have seen 5 SDR's get promoted since I have been here. All of them have been successful in their new position so far.

    4)They feed you lunch every week and have different food trucks on Friday's.

    5) Management has changed and the job is not as easy as it used to be. It was very laid back before and now people have to work. I don't have any issues with new management.

    6) You can bring your dog into work.

    7) Some really smart people and the CEO is approachable.

    Cons

    1) Level 1 pay is low.
    2) Having a lot of issues with the new tools we're using.
    3) The job is stressful but that's not really Sumo's fault.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the top performers and don't let personal relationships get in the way. Increase level 1 pay. You can't live in CA with the money you make as a level 1.

    Pros

    From the day I started, I felt like the company actually cared about its investment in me as an employee. There's tons of opportunity for training and the upper-managers are all a great resource!

    Cons

    None that I can note.

    I have been working at Sumo Logic full-time

    Pros

    Free lunch and snacks, product is pretty solid

    Cons

    New leadership has completely ruined the company and all that used to be great about it. CRO is cold and unapproachable. Doesn't care about his team, doesn't lead from the front as the face of our organization. Scare tactics and intimidation are commonplace here.

    New SDR leadership completely destroyed what was once a great team. Leadership is clueless, with aggressive and inappropriate behavior. What worked at one company isn't going to universally work at another, and a copy/paste of a previous company is not leadership. New processes in place make the work we do painful, and the career progression is a complete joke. It has caused an uncomfortable work environment, which has forced several of my coworkers to complain to HR about the leadership in place.

    Marketing doesn't give us the tools/messaging to sell this product and it seems our high level messaging is a constant moving target.

    Overall culture is negative and it's sad to hear how unhappy all my coworkers are.

    Advice to Management

    Change your outlook and fix the culture. Make coming to work fun again.
