What is the company culture like at Qlik?

Pros

They left me for few years to study their code-base and that was really useful for me. It increased my value as a software developer

Cons

I was based on the US and clearly neither me nor my colleagues were trusted enough to contributed to the main code-base. Basically Qlik does not act as a single company but rather it is a set of silos which do not interact between each other that much and certainly do not trust each other. The main silo is in Lund, then Ottawa and the weakest link are the engineers working elsewhere around the world. There is a lot of politics giving where each silo is giving heavy preference to its own political agenda and engineering staff. I have worked with people both in Sweden and Canada and have to say that nothing was straightforward in those interactions. Actually, I was perplexed why they gave me such a big salary for almost three years and while at the same time made sure that my contributions were minimal. I decided to leave because I felt underutilized and at the whim of very odd managerial decisions. Most of the managerial decisions which impacted my career at Qlik were made by remote managers who did not bother to understand what I was doing or did not study the particular situation before making decision. Again the surprising thing was that I had very good salary and benefits for the work I was required to do. I left because I felt the whole situation did not make sense and it would be dangerous for me to stay. After I left there were at least 4 attempts of Qlik employees to bring me back and that did not make sense to me either. So glad that this whole Qlik experience is part of my past.

Advice to Management

Build a single company with a single corporate culture and single unified management body. At the time I left Qlik was just a set of silos which were reluctant to talk to each other, not mentioning trusting each other.

What are co-workers like at Qlik?

Pros

Great colleagues, great product, flexible work hours

Cons

Top management does not honor each countries work culture and code of conduct. Cut backs are not negotiated according to Swedish standard, rather pushed out with out fast and with threat. Salary merit 2020 was removed after it had already been approved and communicated. Negotiations with unions was not done even though it is stated in the Swedish law. Union negotiation was done afterwards, resulting in an disagreement, little to late . That is now an escalated issue between the unions legal department and qlik. That was just the small part. Then came A 10 % work and pay reduction worldwide. That didn’t correlate to Swedish already existing corona short time work reduction program. This was just ignored and the reduction plan was force pushed to each individual employed in Lund. No negotiations with unions or adapting the proposal to fit government reduction plans . No, just skip Swedish culture and do a quick change with a threat of lay offs. All good spirit at the Lund office disappeared within a few days. This issue is also an ongoing issue between unions and qlik. I still am employed but with less creativity. I care about my work colleagues but apart from that , I really hope the company does a huge profit loss this year. I leave for something else then

Advice to Management

Diversity and inclusion means respecting each country’s differences. Otherwise there no inclusion. People here at Lund have really lost their thrust in the company. Changing the whole top management or just selling the company, again.

Great colleagues, great product, flexible work hours
