Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – July 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, VA – June 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, VA – February 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.
location, competitive pay with bonus payout every quarter.
healthcare, 401K, no remote or flexibility schedules allowed
Engineer (Former Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – December 15, 2016
* no growth opportunities * promotion/raise is impossible * new hires makes more than you do * many people looking for way-out * high turn-over rate, company is replacing leaving employees with new hires * on-site gym is the only good thing
Specialist Consultant (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – November 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.
Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – March 16, 2016
The CEO/Management here does not care about their employees. I started working here after having many close friends who advised me not to, and I regret not listening to them. Just a terrible place to work. Only pro I can think of (that can also be a con) is that it is right next to the mall...
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – February 28, 2016
Complete disconnect between executive management and the rest of the company. Constant revolving door of management makes implementing effective and efficient changes impossible. Communication and institutional knowledge is now non-existent. Internal systems and processes are broken with no hope for improvement in the immediate future.
Great Product Poor Strategic Planning and Follow Through
Vice President, Cloud Business Unit (Current Employee) – Tysons Corner, VA – February 18, 2016
normal work environment, great people in the trenches, way to much politics and lack of loyalty from sr management. Hardest part of job is navigating the silo's and getting things done that requires working with other silo'ed organizations.
systems engineer (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – November 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, VA – August 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.
Great Culture, Really Smart People, Genuine feeling of wanting to get work done
