    Negative Outlook

    I worked at NetSuite

    Pros

    Not many, besides that other employers will love your resume when you inevitably quit.

    Cons

    Personality culture Moving towards a “Big 4” model for distributing project work to consultants Grossly underpaying young consultants but expecting the same level of performance as experienced consultants Tunnel-visioned about utilization % Least professional “professional services” managers

    Advice to Management

    Remember that “Licenses and Love” is not a strategy. It is only a catchy slogan and does nothing to support improvement in professional services.

    Former Employee - Senior Principal Consultant in London, England

    I worked at NetSuite full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits since being acquired by Oracle (can purchase extra holiday, better healthcare/pension etc through monthly allowance) Flexible working/work-life balance Great team ethos in the office Really dynamic people to work with Lots of opportunity to move around in the business

    Cons

    Management is poor - no investment in professional development Particular team I was part of were disinterested in my career progression Remote management are not interested in the day to day ground work and don't recognise or appreciate the efforts made Management need to be educated on how to work with teams, motivate, engage and retain

    Advice to Management

    Listen and take notice of your team, without them you're nothing

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NetSuite full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Recognisable and huge company name - Nice office space - Decent pay and relatively OK work-life balance - Flexible working hours, management generally doesn't micromanage if you're hitting your hours and your customers are happy with you - You'll enjoy NetSuite if you can stand mindless politics and is content over getting to leave early on days where your workload is lighter.

    Cons

    - Management prides itself on having a wonderful work culture, and how it empowers its employees to do great things at the company. However, much of this is fluff talk and employees simply felt miserable with all the overpromising that didn't result in ANYTHING. So much fluff was promised that employees just completely gave up hope of anything coming into fruition after awhile. - Promotion scheme is ridiculous. For such a big organization, you would think that there will be more structure to how the company promotes its employees. However, employees' promotions or raises would solely depend on what upper management felt was 'deserved' by the department based on how much revenue it made that year, and not because of the merits of the employee (Referring to non-sales roles). - Management constantly tries (I think this is still happening) to find subtle ways to undercut salespeople's compensations in order to boost revenue. It is a lowly attempt and pretty appalling to witness. - Office can often feel like a highly unprofessional farmhouse (for the lack of a better word), with people randomly shouting across the room during inappropriate working hours throughout the day (this happens constantly), making it challenging to concentrate and remain efficient - Pantry is absolutely pathetic. You'll survive on a few measly biscuits and get lucky on some days with a few pieces of fruit. - Compensation offered by the company is below average as compared to other tech companies of comparable size. - Software ALWAYS had glitches. This would drive everybody crazy, as you couldn't figure out if there was something wrong with the configuration or the system. This especially tends to backfire on the team during customer demos.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your employees better, not just via airy talks, but actually setting up proper milestones to have things happen. Stop valuing employees who come off as better talkers than others. Some employees work so hard that they find little time to engage in meaningless conversations throughout the day, and yet the ones who don't work as hard get more recognition. I understand that it is a big company and its hard to notice everything, but please start looking beyond the surface!! Have better guidelines put into place on how consultants should work together amongst different teams, and not let people who are more 'senior' in the company dictate how to do things 'based on experience'. This would improve on efficiency and consultants can deliver more consistent experiences to customers across different projects.
