    To everyone feeling FOMO about not landing a pre-IPO role, here’s a reminder that they don’t always go well, even when the rest of tech has been killing it ($IPO > $current): Marqeta ($27 > $19), Robinhood ($38 > $24), Blend ($18 > $11), Compass ($18 > $9), UiPath ($56 > $43), LegalZoom ($28 > $19), Remitly ($43 > $22), Riskified ($21> $8), Outbrain ($20 > $ 14). If you came into these really early, maybe your making money. But the stocks seem to keep dwindling.

      Confusion

      Aug 8, 2021 - Senior RPA Developer in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      In the beginning it was purely focused on developing something great and the work culture also thrived with that mentality .

      Cons

      Uipath became obsessed with creating hype since early 2018 when they started getting massive funding and were eyeing going public . The stock is also going to crash soon because of this . As someone currently working as a developer in this company it’s scary how much a company like Microsoft has crawled closer to uipath. I warned management not to focus so much on hype and going public . We should have and should moving forward put more effort on innovation and spend less time worrying about shareholder expectations and creating hype. If you have any doubts on what management really feels look no further to the fact that the Cfo traded many of his shares out when he was able too after going public . It’s not a coincidence . Tell me a company where executives will trade out of a stock in huge quantities when they are confident of their technology moving forward. The answer is none. If you want further proof look at the interviews of that very same Cfo hyping up rpa and uipath right before doing public .

      Pros

      Bright intellectual people who want to expand the rpa space.

      Cons

      False advertising of the technology. RPA is being massively overhyped and anyone who really understands it knows these valuation will not last. Leadership doesn’t like anyone if they are not yes people and spend exorbitantly on unnecessary things and roll there eyes when we make observations or suggestions.

      Pros

      If you have a good territory and manager, you'll do great!

      Cons

      UiPath talks a big game but doesn't deliver. The RPA hoax is on a downward trend, sure you can still do well under some circumstances but RPA isn't much more than what it is is... The company is still scrambling to stabilize things and they just don't hire the correct people to be in leadership positions. They are run by internal politics and favorites.

      A Very Costly Mistake

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Never experienced these--only mentioned during the interview process

      Cons

      I am writing this because I am just one piece of the "trimmed fat" and "baggage" that some of the current UiPath employees write about in their reviews. After reading quotes from UiPath's leadership team on how they made the "right move" three months after the company axed 400 employees, I knew now was the time to speak up. At best, this company’s leadership could be considered greedy, sleazy and tactless. Just scroll through all of the negative reviews published from current and axed employees (and get a nice chuckle from the fake “booster” positive reviews.) As you can read in many respectable tech publications, the company overhyped the RPA market and tried to mislead customers into believing the technology was much more advanced and valuable than it actually was. Unfortunately, customers weren’t buying it, and neither did the press and key thought leaders. The company hired hundreds of employees in the course of the year to get the self proclaimed “rocket-ship” off the ground, They then callously laid them off that same year after the employees’ “scrappiness” was no longer needed. The kicker is the company then claimed it was just part of their overall “strategy” to save face from their poor performance. Maybe it was their strategy but if that’s true, how awful. It’s worth mentioning that most of these layoffs occurred in the US where employees were handed one month's severance, and told this was a generous offering. Most of these employees, including myself worked around the clock, sacrificing precious time with family to help the company achieve their mission which they clam in their on-boarding deck is more valuable than your personal needs. They continuously preached that “work/life immersion” was necessary in order to work at UiPath, and working less than 12 hours a day was unacceptable. I keep in touch with many of my colleagues that still work there, and people are leaving in mass or in the process of their exit strategy. To add color to UiPath's perspective on the layoffs, you only need to read how they respond to media inquiries; Recent quote and article from a senior leader to a business tech pub on the layoff of 400 employees; "It was just a natural part of that evolution that you needed to get rid of that baggage. The step was taken to weed out employees who were good for the "scrappy" startup mode but not ideal for scaling the business," Shockingly, this interview was aimed to redeem UiPath from their poor financial and unethical decisions. Do you think these employees were continuously "scrappy" because they wanted to work non-stop with little resources and personal time? Did these employees leave Fortune 500 companies knowing that in the next 5-12 months they were going to slave their life away to UiPath, be ready to travel anywhere on the drop of a dime with little to no extended notice, and have their hard earned bonuses revoked, then laid off. That's what UiPath believes to be true. After all, we're just baggage.

      Not exactly a rocketship.. as they claim to be..

      Pros

      highly SELF motivated people you will work with.

      Cons

      UiPath used to be a good and fun company to work with. Employees were really motivated. They believed they were changing the world. Every decision they made felt like it would have a great impact on future.. and then.. they hired leadership people from GE, Nutanix, NetApp, and EMC.. Key leadership people that came from GE, Nutanix, NetApp, and EMC didn't care about the company. They treated UiPath as cash-cow and hired as many friends from their previous jobs as possible at considerable high salary. by 2019, culture became so bad that everyone hated people who even mentioned that they were from one of those companies. It became very clear that those people were hired because leadership in those departments (Services, Customer Success, and Partner Management, and Training) were able to convince CEO that hiring fast and hiring people from these companies was the way to grow.. Sad he believed them.. It took them more than 2 years and still they have no partner strategy, they have no idea what to do with the customer success team now since it is merged with services.. they are just throwing darts on a strategy board and trying those ideas.. hoping something will work.. Romanians are highly favored in UiPath. romainan leadership team (including CEO) have untalented people on payroll who contribute nothing.. and no one can touch them. People in romania treated uipath as their vacation wallet.. they planned their meetings, training, and team-building exercises in various countries just so they can travel their with their families.. Do ethics mean nothing to them? people like these are responsible for the current state of uipath. No work-life balance. In fact CEO once said in his all hands meeting that there is nothing as work-life balance. If you are working for uipath, you should be thinking of uipath.. all the time.. even in shower.. everyone gets unlimited PTO but no one uses it; it is just a joke.. people work very long hours.. 12-15 hours days are normal here.. CEO claims full transparency.. that uipath hides nothing from employees.. but seriously.. there is zero transparency from C-Suite. They spent 8 million on a conference in vegas where they bragged about rocket ship growth and how great the company was doing AND 2 days later laid off more than 400 hard working employees... 2-days after claiming to be the top most RPA company.. and just before holidays so they can look profitable in Q4 and leadership team can get their christmas bonus.. seriously.. this is what you call best place to work!! is this your leadership? You collect money at expense of hard-working people who have done nothing wrong but to believe in your pipe-dream. Do they know how hard is it to get a job in Q4.. and they gave a lousy 4 weeks severance.. which will end before December.. where is your compassion? Is this what you call "being humble" that you claim in your core value.

      Pros

      Unlimited time off lol kidding, they will come down on you hard any time you do, but that is only in the US.

      Cons

      Culture is fake, full of ego driven maniac managers with no clue or regards to process, I have never seen such blatant disrespect to employees in my career. Company wont pay bonuses or commissions, will work against anyone getting any money except for the leadership team. RPA product is really not ready for prime time, small deals VS large quotas is NOT good math.

      Pros

      - Investor funding and high market interest - Clever people - lots of good talent - Rapid growth, exciting place to be

      Cons

      - Say RPA "without hint of coding" - reality is all projects beyond a PoC have developers ... even JD for pre-sales says need years of coding experience - overselling comes with high risk - Talking lots about AI, but no capabilities just a roadmap - vaporware is hard to sell with a clear conscience + not going to waste time pushing IBM Watson - Lots of partnerships but lacking focus or execution - Oracle relationship isn't delivering ROI - Lots of sales reps, rapid hiring, high targets, poor profit share = internal competition and unhappy - Small deal sizes - pushing the product at dirt cheap prices, one bot at a time - only a few key accounts actually scaling automation successfully

      Pros

      Outstanding technology and an exceptionally good team of ants. The solution is some time ahead of the market, which helps every customer service representative to work out a roadmap for implementation with the customer. The internal support among each other - sales, marketing, pre-sales is very good.

      Cons

      RPA or automation is still a niche market, and although UiPath expects to be one of the big players, it is not the number one priority for most customers. The regions are very much against each other and management in Europe is a disaster. The individual employee is uninteresting and the right of the strongest exists. Communication from top to bottom does not exist. Instructions and expectations are passed on. There is no cooperation between bottom and top.

      RPA tech is relatively early on the hype curve - hard core sales culture with plenty of expectation.

      Decent work life balance Amazing Product Decent packages

      Cons

      Everything else is pretty much is how things are not supposed to be. The organization is teeming with narcissists who are literally breast fed by the CEO. The company has turned out to be a sales org, with zero people vision. The only saving grace is the product continues to be good - till now. Self declared RPA gurus and Evangelists, people with zero Architectural concepts running as Solution Architects and people with zero people management skills managing teams. Failed teams from bigger brands have been inducted to create a fake org.
