    Great place to work

    Pros

    Management is concerned about their team and the well-being of the individuals. Easy to use PTO without feeling like you are a burden on other team members Colleagues are ready to help you with cases or take them over when you are out. When there are issues upper management really does try to fix them. The majority of the customer is awesome. Interdepartmental communication is good and account reps are very helpful. Direct report managers are the best.

    Cons

    Feels like there is a disconnect from ground level to upper management on some topics. Moving up is sometimes ambiguous (depends on where you want to go)

    It was a great introduction into the software world.

    Pros

    I loved all the opportunities to grow and learn ( World-class training, coaching, mentorship etc... ) We also had a two-week boot camp that helped us get familiar with the product and refine our selling style.

    Cons

    At times it felt like a boys club, especially in leadership. The woman leaders we did have were very in their masculine and unrelatable. We grew very quickly and it felt very clunky. Communication was siloed within the orgs. and often times was conflicting ( For example we had a foosball table in the kitchen but told not to use it.... I didn't care about Foosball, but to me it seemed like the company wanted to seem "cool" for the outside, but that was not the reality we where living..) The atmosphere felt very negtive the last couple years I was there and I did not feel supported.

    Pros

    Great product, smart coworkers, leader in the industry

    Cons

    Was acquired and processes changed, the company lost its culture which was somewhat expected but still a bit disappointing. Resulted in less of a focus on the product and helping customers, more of a focus on growth and increasing earnings
