    I have been working at MongoDB full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As the company is growing quickly it is exciting for everyone to be part of this success. Company values are lived by everyone, teamwork regardless of what department you are in. Work-life balance is also a huge PRO if needed to work from home to run an errand or two it is possible. I think I am most proud of the transparency and trust of Top Management.

    Cons

    Sometimes the days can be long due to cross continent teams but otherwise, it is manageable.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Extremely competitive salary and benefits - Hyper growth company with many internal growth opportunities - Very strong product - Cultural sweet-spot between hyper-growth "startup" and multinational company - If proactive, a lot of extra-work projects and opportunities - Mentorship available and strong leadership team - Fast learning curve - Travels - Achievable targets if hard-work is the base

    Cons

    - If not coming from a tech environment, the product ecosystem is not easy to learn at the beginning but there are a lot of resources to get up to speed with it - Some processes are not perfectly defined but it's also an advantage if you like to put your own flavour to these processes

    Pros

    MongoDB is the best place to be right now. The business is growing scary fast, while the company has over 1500 employees, it's small enough that you get real interactions with SVPs and C-level executives. Things move fast here. Sales people can make great money. MongoDB invests a ton on their professionals, one full month of training to get you up to speed, including a week workshop in NYC. Leaders and managers...

    Pros

    Culture of collaboration across the sales org globally - we share constantly between all teams and all levels. We work very hard to work in harmony. Flat hierarchy - leaders are learning what's working and what's not from the sales teams all the time and regular communication with CEO / CRO means we can build / pivot the business based on that feedback easily Focus on enablement - dedicated enablement team constantly...

    Cons

    This is a company where we work extremely hard - the bar is extremely high, in line with the potential rewards. This type of environment is not for everyone.

    Pros

    * The company is growing and everyone is excited. This means we create a good product highly demanded by the market * Internal culture is awesome, there is no pressure on projects, no blames, punishment if the deadlines are not met (in fact it's almost always impossible to estimate right in the beginning) * Company values innovation and initiative, promotions are frequent * Super work-life balance, it's possible to...

    Cons

    Some people need stronger pressure to work hard, democracy and lack of micromanagement is bad for them.
