systems engineer (Current Employee) –  McLean, VANovember 3, 2015
Its a good place to work, the work life balance is good mgmt is understanding about working from home taking days off taking extended planned vacations.company is could use more staffing as a result more is required of current employees, which includes more work but allows for greater learning opportunities. No one has ever left the company saying they didnt learn a great deal or have difficulty finding a new and usually much better job. Senior leadership can be quick to change without letting everyone know so direction of company can sometimes be unknown to employees.

Silicon Valley Style of Work without the production
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAAugust 18, 2015
Nothing happens in the office before 9am. People are all telecommuting, I would get in at 7:30 and not see a dozen people before 9:30. I learned to rein in my opinions about what could be improved. Their technology was built in-house, and was awful to use, not in the mainstream. Lack of clear communication throughout the company. Coworkers were really great people, camaraderie was fantastic. It was a pleasure going in to work every day. Getting your job done, and having to not make excuses based on the tools provided was the hardest part.

If you get offered a job at MicroStrategy, take it.
Pros
Great Culture, Really Smart People, Genuine feeling of wanting to get work done
Cons
Equipment and Technology

Lead Consultant for MicroStrategy on AWS (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 18, 2015
This is no longer a company you want to work for. The culture is toxin and no one is happy to come to work. If there is one word to describe management style it would be micromanagement. Not from your direct managers, but from the CEO himself.

IT Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VADecember 17, 2014
Company has it's ups and downs. I joined when it was at a high, and it was shown from the enthusiasm of the employees. Company went through several layoffs and now the morale is just low. It is affecting the overall work ethic. Learned a lot from the time I was here and I don't regret it one bit.

Due Diligence & Investigations Manager (Current Employee) –  Vienna, VAOctober 24, 2014
Several layoffs have occurred in several years that lead to most employees looking for new employment daily. The layoffs are immediate, which leads to increased loss of work productivity due to fear. The CEO seems disengaged from the every day workforce of his employees. The management does not communicate effectively to employees, and most of management rides on their egos and pride too much.
