Great Product Poor Strategic Planning and Follow Through
Vice President, Cloud Business Unit (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAFebruary 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.
Pros
great co-workers, fairly good pay
Cons
lack of direction and follow through on vision

A very bad place
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAFebruary 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.
Pros
Nice Gym
Cons
Everything

Better off working at Mcdonalds
Operations Analyst (Current Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAMarch 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...

Great co workers and learning experience
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.

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.
