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

    Pros

    Sales excellence is a core focus of everyone - enablement, onboarding and development are all key priorities from CEO down Amazing team of people with great energy Flat hierarchy - everyone's views matter and senior leadership act to improve the business on the basis of team feedback every quarter Great products - it helps to be able to rely on products that make businesses better Focus on promotions - we promote fast and we take pride in building careers.

    Cons

    It's intellectual challenging as the sale is complex - I enjoy this but it's not for everyone There are a lot of things to keep on top of and the pace we work at is intense - individuals need to manage themselves well to sustain the pace.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company structure is very flat and contact to C-Levels is not hard. Feedback can always be given and it is valued by managers and their managers. There is a strong family feel without losing the sense of professionalism, where everyone is welcome and respected equally, from the LGBTQA+ Community to different cultural backgrounds. Working as an ADR/SDR and moving to a senior ADR/SDR position is always possible within the first year of work and to then move up the sales positions or move to a different department is highly encouraged and supported by direct managers. They make sure the team members fit with one another where everyone becomes close and works together closely to help each other achieve great results and hitting over the target. Lastly, the pay for this position is one of the highest in Dublin.

    Cons

    Honestly, nothing I can think of.

    MongoDB is a growth company (and only getting started) which provides amazing opportunities to those who perform. There are no internal politics that are so evident in other companies

    Pros

    - At MongoDB, values are not just nice words framed on the wall. The interview process is long but it ensures the people hired embody our values and actively add to our culture that we make every effort to protect as we scale - Our growth means life moves at a fast pace. Work hard, play hard comes to mind and if you are someone who has a strong work ethic, is proactive, flexible, and has scalability at the forefront of your mind, there are many learning and growth opportunities at MongoDB - You are not just a number or a cog in the wheel! Every person has the ability to contribute meaningfully - The company genuinely embraces work flexibility and work-life balance. Management leads by example

    Cons

    - All good things! We are in the awkward teenage years though and so processes, policies, etc., aren't always fully baked, but it is exciting as you feel you are helping lay the foundations for success in the years to come

    Great place to learn, and fast-track you career as there is genuine commitment from leadership to promote internally. Little politics and great colleagues.

    The all hands on deck, all the time culture that comes with a fast-growing, dynamic company can be challenging at times and isn't for everyone.

    Pros

    Great culture, great product and great opportunity to advance your career. I have found my time in MongoDB to be the most valuable experience in terms of career progression. I have learned a lot about the product and the exciting DB industry, I have evolved my CSM skills very quickly by being given the opportunity to work with very strategic customers in a short period of time since joining. All in all I have been provided opportunities to advance my career here at MongoDB. The company is inclusive and strives to grow employees towards the direction they are interested in exploring. Management is invested in employee growth and you have the tools and flexibility to make it happen for you. If you are eager to work hard and learn and grow, MongoDB is a great fit.

    Cons

    Constant iteration can result taxing sometimes
