I have been working at Qlik

Pros

High growth, great people, mostly friendly environment. Have a highly differentiated product offering good for midsize companies. Marketing is getting better.

Cons

Poor sales management at the top level in the U.S. Hands off approach leads to not knowing what is going on at the critical levels of the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring and firing Presidents in the U.S. Live the culture you say you have. Seek out employee opinions and listen to them.

    I have been working at Qlik full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The product is second to none - simple, powerful and works as advertised.
    Great corporate culture - open & straightforward, move fast, challenge and take responsibility.
    CEO, COO, CTO and other older management actually live by these values.
    Vision executed to perfection - from startup to IPO to industry leader.

    Cons

    New management jumped on the the gravy train and only pay lip service to corporate values.
    Too many middle managers with randomly generated job titles justifying their existence creating unproductive work for others - endless powerpoint and meetings culture creeping in.
    Not enough perks or opportunities outside US or Europe - poorly run offices, unskilled sales teams,...
    Product vision unclear - all the focus is on one competitor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintenance revenue is being ignored - hire sales teams to fill this gap.
    Take charge of HR and get rid of unproductive management and titles - what is a Senior Business Expert? How can someone teach other how to sell when they've never sold anything before?
    Embrace the changing customer buying models - subscription, cloud,...
