      Pros

      - Excellent Product, relevant to C-Suite Business leaders and tech org across all industries - Excellent onboarding programme - Ton of Development on a daily/ weekly basis from leaders and peers - Global Leadership Team, personable and accessible - Strong team ethos and sense of camaraderie - Heaps of opportunities to develop your skillset and career in a fast paced, growth organisation - Common goals and language across the business - Very good basic and commission package

      Cons

      Like any role in a fast paced, high intensity sales environment, hard work and determination are required to find new opportunities and close revenue. Personally, I wish I’d joined earlier in my career.

      Pros

      *Very good product and developers love it *Growing company and shares *Very capable executive team *If you work in the right territory supported by the right people you`ll smash your numbers *Flat hierarchy, access to experienced executives to learn from *Coaching culture *You will get better at your job, whatever it is.

      Cons

      *"it's not for everyone" has been repeated many times. Management usually says this when they don't want recognize a problem, even when you demonstrate what you are saying supported by data. *hard culture, you will be always doing something wrong and it's your fault. You'll discover this during QBRs *Not intellectually honest, one size fits all mentality *Sales treated like BDRs, zero creativity, my way or the highway *Former reps are considered better managers *Very young people and managers easier to shape and silence

      Career Development is Here

      Oct 27, 2021 - Senior Executive Assistant 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great opportunity to learn more or refine existing skills. There is a lot of investment in programs/trainings that allows employees to grow. You can come in with a career plan and flourish, or even if you are unsure, if you're an interested, thoughtful person, you will see your abilities and confidence grow and your career will thrive as a result. I saw a lot of career growth here, even passively without a particular aim; by getting involved in projects that interested me, and being encouraged to tackle new challenges. The company has handled the pandemic really well. You could tell employee safety was a priority as we promptly required remote working in the beginning of the pandemic. Now we have accommodations for those who prefer to continue working from home, and those who prefer to return to the office. The company culture is one that fosters a good work life balance, and camaraderie. There are a lot of events, groups, newsletters - ways to stay connected with others globally. There are many, MANY different recognitions programs as well so people feel valued and celebrated.

      Cons

      No job is perfect, and everyone will have a day where they don't like their job - but for me these days are few and rare and there is no major issue that needs to be addressed.

      Pros

      . MongoDB continuously invests effort, time and resources in extensive training and individual development plans . MongoDB is the fastest growing player in the most promising industry for the next decades. There couldn't be a better timing to join, contribute to this growth and leveraging this to seize the endless and quick career growth opportunities that are being offered. . Culture of collaboration, diversity, inclusion, recognition and fun

      Cons

      1-year in the company, I can't think of any significant Cons. However, I believe that adopting a fully remote working model with local contracts can definitely help the company in better attracting the best talent out there
