    I worked at Veeva Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Decent Benefits, Stock Options, Work from Home, Close group of co-workers to brainstorm with. Exciting pipeline, Exciting Product lines.

    Cons

    Underpaid for work completed, No Life, Horrible or non existent training, expected to ask what you don't know. But with so many hires , no one knows answers. Company is trying to corner the market with new releases, can't keep up. AND BE A GOOD SME FOR THE CLIENT. . Lots of 20 somethings in first job working for less with a Rah Rah attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Organized, Prepared real situational client training. They more or less want to to be this client SME but won't allow you assist the client, If that function is not in your job function, Even though you have a great relationship with client, They trust you, And you have the solution. You have to pass it off. Too many people doing jobs that could be and should be done by fewer. I was at Veeva 2 years and at its main competitor for 3. They were by far the most knowledge free, unhelpful, LeSE EXPERIENCED ON THE TEAM. BUT TOOK THE CREDIT

    Pros

    - Free lunch everyday
    - Lots of parking

    Cons

    - High stress
    - Low pay
    - Dismissive CMO
    - You will not have a voice unless you are a VP
    - Expect to receive calls on the weekend
    - A LOT of micromanaging. There is only one way to do things.
    - A very painful experience and I hope others do not have to go through the same.
    HR, if you see this, marketing leadership can benefit from leadership training, and empathy to avoid high turnover rates, unhappy past employees, and just a negative work culture!

    I worked at Veeva Systems full-time

    Pros

    The building is nice and free lunch is great.

    Cons

    Sr Management needs to support their staff. You hire a staff member, let them do there job and support them. If you don't agree with Sr Management you will find yourself being replaced. The Sr Management if very disrespectful and don't care about your time or worth. Free lunch is nice but not to let employees have sugar drinks or white rice at meals shows you don't care about your employees. The attitude of its my way or the highway , does not build a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Show support for your staff and not buckle under pressure from other Sr Managers.
    There are other greater companies to work for within Pleasanton beside Veeva... Workday
