    I worked at Veeva Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Veeva has really great set of core Values. However they do not practice a single one of them. Do not be fooled. Restricted stocks that vested over time. Stocks are doing well, being on the business side may be much better. The ideas and whats planned for product are inspiring and could change things but they must address the inequality and toxic morale.

    Cons

    Depressing.Absolutely no career advancement. They hired the best of the best and do not use their skills. Half of the team has quit in the last 6 months. More will leave. You will be promised all kinds of things, future as a leader for joining and being part of the ground up. The job will never exist. DO NOT fall for this, your heart will be shattered like the others. If you have, evaluate your goals and values and...

    Advice to Management

    Quit preaching about change, just change. Some of us had been waiting too long for the change. Stop promoting people that do not have true experience, better yet learn to recognize true experience. Move your edc experts to leadership roles before they are all gone. It brings morale down when you do not recognize and it is even worse when you have clueless bodies that get in the way in those roles instead. Your employees...

    Pros

    Many great people with a common vision of Customer Success with Veeva's great products. Focus on speed for customers.

    Cons

    As others have said, if you are onn the wrong team Veeva will shatter your soul. Cronyism is the primary way to advance. Doing excellent work and providing great value is not under appreciated, it is unappreciated and disregarded. There are individuals with whom I work that have excellent ideas and skills, only to be underused and undervalued (= under compensated) Recent comp plan change will have a huge downside...

    Advice to Management

    Look at the current employee talent pool. See where you can grow and develop the next set of leaders. Don't make it a game or exercise of favoritism. There are a lot of folks who've been here 5+ years who are no longer being pushed or challenged, sometime that will catch up and hurt the customer.

    Pros

    If you work on a good team Veeva would be an outstanding company.

    Cons

    On the wrong team Veeva will shatter your soul. Cronyism is the only way to advance. Doing excellent work and providing great value is not under appreciated, it is unappreciated and disregarded.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employees who are doing great work and supporting your values. Listen to your customers. You have a middle management team made up of people who have been promoted based on their success in previous jobs until they finally reach a level at which they are no longer competent and there they sit. Skills in one job do not necessarily translate to another. See Peter Principle, Veeva has sadly mastered this.

      I worked at Veeva Systems full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      In general, it's a awful company and limited grow for anyone's career, too much politics, mangers care more about themselves and their territories, no tactical vision, and don't want to support employees growing.

      Cons

      Terrible managers, inexperienced team members, overtime work and low pay... The products Veeva built were terribly bad, still using old school' technologies, can't make them more sucks. Only reason it still worked is the medical companies want to spend money and there're not much serious competitors in such vertical sector.

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

      Pros

      Great work mates, nice office.

      Cons

      Be hired by Veeva is not able to everybody, because of this you will be a second class worker, less benefits as the Veevan's workers, less salary. No oportunities to grow up if you are not a manager's friend, promotion system isn't based on one's work or experience. Medium bosses are totally inexperienced or not well prepared so they are not able to help you to grow up as a professional.

        Hardworking and faithful colleagues. Lot of learning opportunities

        Cons

        It has a very sick working culture and narrow minded and dominating managers who think that their employees are slaves. There is no trust within the teams and managers are exploiting their employees .

        Advice to Management

        Get rid of some manipulative managers although they may may be good workwise otherwise you will loose good and faithful employees.
