    Pros

    You get to work in an industry that is solving a problem that virtually everyone has to confront - cybersecurity - making it meaningful and rewarding. Wether it's talking with prospects, current customers, or other people in the industry - this company is well respected and has a lot of room for growth (remarkable given its performance already). You have the opportunity to work under a director who has been in sales...

    Nothing you wouldn't find in most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    tons of benefits, lots of sales tools

    Cons

    First nepotism this cannot be understated, market for product becoming saturated, unfair sales territories, the office in general - good location bad office, incompetent directors, and there is literally no diversity in the office like at all.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Thycotic full-time

    Pros

    Great location right here in DC, have a boss that coaches me and supports my growth. We have a weekly "Dojo" session every week to break down calls and learn how to get better over the phone which really helps. Company appears to be growing really, really fast and it's cool to be a part of it.

    Cons

    Since we're growing so fast, sometimes communication between upper level management is a bit murky. Our office is starting to get too close for comfort because we've grown so fast but it sounds like we're moving to an entirely new office before the end of the year. The role itself can be a grind sometimes. Our metrics are tough but reachable yet with the amount of leads, webinars, campaigns to work on, at times I...

    Advice to Management

    Allow us to focus more on working accounts for mid-market AE's as opposed to all these marketing leads. The AE's want it too. That'll give them more opportunities for bigger deals vs. what we give them from marketing leads and make them happier. Plus, it will help me grow.

    Pros

    One of the fastest growing segments of cyber security. Insane growth and potential. Thycotic is absolutely willing to help employees grow and build their experience in the space. Leadership is completely invested in making sure employees have the tools and knowledge needed to be successful. If you're willing to WORK, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Intensity can be a bit much for some (if not most). If you're not performing you will get called on it. Drinking from the fire hose is an understatement.

    Advice to Management

    Work-Life balance is not a dirty word. Encourage employees to use vacation so they don't burn out. Remember most of us want to be successful. Mentor your employees and give them a reason to perform.

    Pros

    Everyone here works hard and helps each other succeed. Everyone is positive and happy to be working for such an awesome company. Casual work environment is nice and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The company has increased it’s headcount by 50% over the past year, so there are some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing!

    Pros

    Location is nice, the folks on the sales team are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Too many to list... - Territories were cut once a quarter in 2018 - I lost about 70% of my accounts over the course of the year -HORRIBLE directors. Upper management has verbally admitted to multiple reps that certain directors are under-qualified or simply too old to care -You are not allowed to move to a different team unless you are family (rampant nepotism) -High pressure environment where lead generation...

    Advice to Management

    Never in my life have I seen such incompetent individuals continue to be supported in managerial positions when their OWN BOSSES KNOW THEY ARE BAD. I heard a change was recently made, but old/current employees alike were all dumbfounded as to the actual details. There are far more pressing managerial changes that need to be made.

      Pros

      Thycotic is a fast growing company and I challenge anyone to find a better company in the security space. With rapid growth over the last four years the company has changed and will have to continue adapting to be successful. For those with all of the negative comments - it is good you have either moved on, or you should think about it. Sales is a contact sport and in this market and at the level we are now playing it...

      With growth there will be some pain and changes - oh well that's life. No big deal.

      Remain transparent and continue to coach, mentor and motivate employees. Happy employees will make customers happy.

      Product is great and coworkers are supportive. Promising market that only has three real players. Benefits offered to employees are excellent as well. Prime location in the heart of DC allows for an easy commute for employees living in the DMV area. If you're a self-motivated individual that likes autonomy - this is a great place to be in sales. While focus on individual metrics can very from manager to manager, it is...

      Cons

      Although the office is in a great location, it's reaching its capacity and is becoming a little dated. If you're not willing to devote extra work or ask for help (training is brief and is reliant on you shadowing others and learning on the fly), this may not be the place for you - at least from the sales side.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to encourage feedback, but have an open mind to what people have to say. While many would take management up on its open door policy offer - others are hesitant. Reach out to people that aren't doing well to find out why, and reach out to people doing well to see how they can help their teams and coworkers. Unofficial team lead or mentor roles could offer a stepping stone to promotion while benefiting new hires...
