Fast Paced and Fast Growth
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  McLean, VADecember 15, 2017
i worked at MicroStrategy during the internet bubble. It was a wild ride, but my experience would not be relevant to 2018. Company was very innovative and the employees were hardworking, collaborative and intelligent. The business strategy failed and the company laid off 2/3 of the workforce.
Pros
People
Cons
Process, Business Strategy

Collections - Accounts Analyst (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VANovember 21, 2017
Although the overall environment was nice there wasn't much opportunity to grow and they preformed a large downsizing a few years ago. Many people that had been with the company for a large many years either were laid off or submitted their resignation.

Used to be a good place to work
Sr. Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  US - AnywhereOctober 30, 2017
Great technology albeit more complex to operate than some of the popular BI competition. The software also has more to offer than many competitors which requires greater complexity and collaboration between IT and the business units to take full advantage. The company has gone through some serious fits and starts in the last 5-7 years with many of those being self inflicted by a CEO who does not take the advice off his management team and jumps at new opportunities so quickly that the core business often suffers from MBO whiplash. Culture used to be quite good and participative, but many lay-offs and constant priority shifting has created an internally-competitive and protectionist culture.
Pros
Great product, but quite complex
Cons
CEO is a loose cannon changing direction with the wind

Not Recommended
Headquarters (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAOctober 10, 2017
Cut-throat culture, not friendly towards women. Good place to wear many hats and learn difficult skills. HR working to rebuild reputation but toxic upper management makes it difficult to improve overall culture.

Great Place to Work, also a lot of work
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAJuly 10, 2017
It was a really good place to work while I was there. If you put in the hard work you are rewarded with promotion and good fortune. However you would occasionally have to really put in the extra time. The people there are worth it and I made great friendships as a result.

Decent first job out of college and learning experiance
Business Intelligence Technical Consultant (Current Employee) –  McLean, VAJune 21, 2017
Job is stressful and management consistently is making changes without any regard to employees or their feedback. Pay is decent but workload is heavy with long hours and no work from home option. Need to appreciate current employees more and promote internally more often if they want to keep young talent

Political "good o'l boys" that do not care about the employees
Senior Director of Operations (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAFebruary 21, 2017
Top down dictatorship. Don't expect to bring new ideas or work in a collaborative environment. If you like to plan before you act then avoid this place at all cost especially when working with cross functional teams.

Do you enjoy a balanced work/life - won't find that here!!!

For the most part the engineers are all really great people, can't think of one "jerk" on a team, good people.
Pros
location, competitive pay with bonus payout every quarter.
Cons
healthcare, 401K, no remote or flexibility schedules allowed

Great company to work if you don't mind traveling
Specialist Consultant (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXNovember 21, 2016
Like any other consulting company, if there's no work in your region, you're required to travel. MicroStrategy, in my opinoin, has the best Business Intelligence product and the focus has returned to where it should've been a couple of years ago. The people working there are very professional, easy going, and you never feel micromanaged or that you have a boss. You are trusted to do your part, contribute and play your role. If you don't then typically what you expect happens as in any company.

The best part about consulting is the variety of clients and work you get. You're always learning and growing. The money isn't bad either and there is opportunity to grow with the company.

I really don't have anything negative to say about the company. If they keep on the path, I think they will see a lot of growth, profit and opportunity.

Using a higher level of Excel, I improved my skills immediately at MicroStrategy. They offered extensive training to all employees. Management is very approachable, and open to new ideas.
