    Nothing glaring comes to mind

    I worked at Visier full-time

    Pros

    Friendly smart co-workers. Some work flexibility depending on which team you are on. Good solution for HR companies. You can learn a lot of domain knowledge about HR if you are interested in it.

    Cons

    External people (mostly ex SAP) are hired for almost all new positions. Internal employee growth is not a priority (not counting lip service). No realistic path for working on what you're interested in. The company does not care about your career growth, only what job title you have. Expected timeline for advancement is unreasonable unless you happen to know/be management from Crystal/SAP. Not much transferrable technical knowledge because of proprietary tech Pay is low when workload and opportunity costs are taken into account.

    I worked at Visier full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free snacks, ping pong table / games / basketball court, happy hours, basically tries to act like a "hip" tech start-up.

    Cons

    Low wages, no concrete core values, teams are all competing with each other and not working together in unity. You learn certain skills in this team, but it's very domain-specific. You'll have to work hard to try to expand your skills some other way.

    Cons

    1) Experience is highly dependent on manager/team 2) Too much is expected from strong individual performers 3) Some areas of codebase are questionable due to the emphasis on inexperienced co-ops
