    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Free lunch - Unlimited PTO - Extremely good stock options (changed this year) - Competitive pay - 2% of your income in education - Fitness reimbursement - Work/life balance - Can switch teams, products, or job titles at any time - Huge mix of junior, mid level, and senior engineers. - Engineers from atypical backgrounds (passionate / motivated). - Week break at the end of the year. - CEO / Upper management...

    Cons

    - Learning all the tech, software, terminology, products is overwhelming initially. - The core software which creates nearly all products is an insanely huge code base. - Huge code base is annoying to develop in due to size, slowness, and VM that's required. - Software growing pains (see last two points). The company has grown very fast and still looks to add thousands of employees in the next few years. - Some teams...

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been at Veeva for about 4 months. The people are smart, engaged, and helpful. The team overall is doing great things and there is a lot of excitement about the direction that the company is heading in. Veeva seems to truly care about the engagement and happiness of their employees, and they are also focused on doing the right thing for their customers.

    Cons

    The only negative I can think of is the hiring process. The CEO still reviews every single hire before signing off.... at 2600+ employees and growing, it is difficult to imagine how this is sustainable for the future. I interviewed for months before getting an offer, but I'm so glad I stuck with it!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Company is great and so are the employees. The CEO genuinely cares about growing the company and keeping the culture. Unlimited PTO, can use 2% of your salary for book or classes to develop skills. Fitness reimbursement and stock. They like to promote within so there is plenty of opportunity to grow and learn.

    Cons

    If you don't like to work from home or travel this position might not be for you. Or if you're not self motivated.

    Pros

    Veeva is growing very fast and very quickly. Free lunch every day and awesome people to work with.

    Cons

    Flexible PTO, sounds great but people end up taking less than the average about of PTO other companies give.

    Fantastic Opportunities and Remote Work

    Cons

    Lack of direction at times, you need to steer your own ship

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time

    Pros

    Been here for a while and still think it's a great place to work. The interview process is arguably the worst thing about the entire job. But, it's worth it to make it through. Senior management are all people that inspire you to be a better person. Growing rapidly and as we get larger the benefits are improving. Looks to be going nowhere but directly up at this point.

    Cons

    401k match could be better, first year as associate consultant gets no billable bonus, remote isn't for everyone

    Advice to Management

    1st year CDP should get 2.5% billable

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time

    Pros

    The culture, for sure, is unique. We take our core values seriously. We genuinely try to do the right thing, generate customer and employee success, and operate with speed. We speak directly and do our best to strip away politics. With the growth Veeva has enjoyed, it has offered great opportunities for many of its employees. This is honestly the best job I've ever had.

    Cons

    The culture sometimes takes some time to adjust to. It's a rare thing to get unfiltered discussion at any level but Veeva strives to achieve that. Feedback is not sugar-coated but the motivation is almost always to do the right thing. It drives back to the core values. If you're looking to work at a large company where navigating internal politics is more the focus than working hard and doing a great job, this may...

    I have been working at Veeva Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Veeva has a very unique, positive culture. It's hard to describe - something like calm & collected meets innovative & ambitious. The people here are all eager to help build the best products possible. During my interview, they asked questions about me as a person, not just a professional. There's a sense that people actually care about each other here, which is not the case at many software companies. In the field,...

    Pros

    Customer Success really does come first. If you want to try something new, tackle a new challenge, or see something you think can be done in a better way, as long as you can show that it is the right thing for customers, you will have the support to do it. Veeva is a great place for people who are entrepreneurial and for those who are "A" players. Many very smart, driven people work here...which means you are surrounded...

    Cons

    Veeva's culture likely won't appeal to people who expect to be told what to do. Communication and projects can be a bit siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Foster teamwork and collaboration. Continue to build a culture where people feel like they are part of a team.
