    Pros

    Fun, smart and collaborating colleagues. Innovative environment - a yes environment were good ideas will be seriously considered and if proven implemented in a fast manner. Flexibility: letting people work from home. Strong and promising products that make Thycotic a winner - the company is growing rapidly and will continue to grow in the foreseen future .

    Cons

    The QA process is tedious but the company is updating the process and moving in the right direction with it...

    I worked at Thycotic full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The technology Thycotic has created is groundbreaking and influential. You can learn a lot about where enterprise security is going here, and work with some brilliant people. The compensation is top shelf and the benefits are a breed apart, generous and thorough. Work-life balance is good, with ample time off. Support for working remote is stellar and remote workers have been thoroughly integrated with the in-office staff.

    Cons

    The company has grown at such breakneck pace that people who were competent for their roles in a small company now find themselves out of their depth, trying to run a much larger corporation. Inadequately experienced management has caused at times severe problems with morale and employee relations. Retention of middle management appears problematic, likely due to intense politicking over budgets and titles. HR in particular has failed to implement modern best practices for that discipline; for example, performance reviews are not even written down--verbal only-- despite their impact on bonuses. You need to have a thick skin and be willing to put up with a lot of noise to contribute your best. This is, however, true of many a corporation, not only Thycotic, so if you are used to these growing-pain issues. give it a go.

    I worked at Thycotic full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While Thycotic is not built as a place to spend the bulk of your professional career, it is an outstanding place to learn and develop your skills. The managers and directors have your best interests at heart and are willing to play the role of player-coach to accomplish the cumulative goals of the company. I reported to two different managers/directors during my time and I could not speak more highly of my experiences working with each. The CEO is as hands-on as I've experienced in my career and exudes passion each and every day that he is in the office. Little things such as knowing the name of nearly every employee (exceeding 300 when I left) says a lot about the type of person that he is and how much he cares about this company. HR is OUTSTANDING - Thycotic is very lucky to have an extremely personable and caring group responsible for the company and their open-door policy and ability to connect with employees goes a long way. While cross-business unit communication lacked at times, leadership is more than willing to go to bat for you and take a team-first approach.

    Cons

    There is a major disconnect between different business units that made getting simple tasks completed. Motivation varies across the sales floor - it is easily apparent of who is motivated and cares about their work versus those who are there waiting for it to hit 5pm and a paycheck. Nepotism is apparent but it's only a problem if you want to make it one.

    I have been working at Thycotic full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Joining Thycotic was one of the best decisions I have made in my career. Our company is a rocket ship and the excitement (and challenges) that come with being a part of special company have made this an incredible experience. Pros: - Challenging and fast-paced work environment - Supportive and colleagues and transparent executive team - Opportunity to learn, take ownership, and be rwarded for initiative - Working on the bleeding edge of cyber security and technology

    Cons

    - We have grown so much that we are running out of space in the DC office, but we are moving soon

    "Great company, collaborative culture"

    I have been working at Thycotic full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been with Thycotic for a long time and have seen a lot of growth and change in that time. All throughout, there has been a strong focus on the people and working together to solve the business needs. On the development side, we succeed as a team and we fail as a team which leads to strong working relationships and an environment of learning and trust.

    Cons

    There are times when changing business needs and priorities can result in a project that you have been working on to be put down, and sometimes abandoned. It can be frustrating to not always be able to see things through to the end.
