A lot of organizational and managerial changes but overall, New Relic is a wonderful company that treats employers well. A good place to start a long and fulfilling career.

innovative

NR was Wily 2.0. Founder had previous experience in this space so it was great to work for someone who already had a vision on how to build an enterprise company from the ground up again. This was key within divisions in engineering, marketing, support and sales.

A great place to be an intern

It was a great place to be an intern. I learned a lot about the different facets of marketing within the technology industry and how to leverage the strengths the company to appeal to new potential customers.

Challenging and Accountable place to grow

New Relic is a place for the brave and disciplined. I learned that individuals that lack self-discipline are quickly identified, those that meet the rigorous yet rewarding daily life as a Relic can achieve professional cloud 9.

Be comfortable being uncomfortable

I think the company is doing great things and they have one of the top products on the market. They have all the free snacks, barista, occasional lunches and other perks you could ask for out of a San Francisco office. From my perspective if you got a good manager and territory you were set and if not then you drew the short end of the stick and would struggle. Expect all the growing pains of a start up.

Pros

Perks are nice they take care of you

Cons

Diversity and Inclusion is talked about but not acted upon

Sales Management

If your successful here its because they give you the leads to make the $$. Management thinks they have talent but they're just in a good situation and they'll never leave because they know they dont have any talent. Not fair at all. Work somewhere else, this "bro culture" isn't for women or normal SF citizens. Very very FAKE

Pros

Good Office View

Cons

No Commission & Fake "Bro" Sales Leaders

Most Awful Leadership

Managers put their egos before customers. Anyone that spoke up had seriously consequences. There was a severe female to female bullying problem that leadership was aware of and did nothing.

Pros

great product, great customer base

Cons

Excellent culture with above average office environment

I loved working here and am still friends with plenty of my ex co-workers. The CEO pushes for work/life balance and that sentiment carries forth through the rest of the organization.

Workplace with no career advancement or opportunities

Management doesn't interact with others. Only care about being profitable and raising the stock price. Managers provide no career plan for advancement and don't give opportunities for growth. First time managers get barely any training and don't really know what they're doing.

Cons

Bad Pay, Young Managers

It was great

It was great, but has been steadily changing and many of the smart, talented people that attracted me to this company have left. The culture has changed dramatically in the past year.

Growth Company with scaling pains

New Relic is a viable business with aspirations to be the "next Salesforce" in the Application Performance Management space. The CEO is a passionate leader who delegates managing the business to his team.

Pros

Great Office Location

Cons

Compensation does not offer bonus plans to all employee levels.

Fun Company w/ an Awesome Product

Not much to say, this is a great company. The product is world-class. The people are great and fun to work with. The espresso bar is a major perk. Location can't get much better

Pros

Espresso bar, fair compensation

Cons

Mid-level managers are awful, plenty of red tape and corporate politics to deal with

Great people, fun atmosphere,

New Relic is a startup darling that went public. Lots of focus on the individual and great team culture early on. Post IPO, it became political and great people were either let go, or moved on.

Pros

Great people, good work life balance.

Cons

Politics

Good Company

I don't wish to write a review at this time. It was a good company that was going through some restructuring. I recommend you do your own research if you are interested.

A confused company

While there are a few talented individuals at New Relic, they are stifled from doing their best work by some truly terrible managers, directors, and VPs. Cronyism is rife. The sales organisation appears to be a revolving door, and the company is having a serious external identity crisis, having appointed a CMO who seems to have axed most of the old marketing org to churn out the most bland, insipid, and contrived 'Enterprise' marketing. CEO is a genuine guy, and a lot of people look up to him, but it seems he's increasingly become a background player. A real shame.

Pros

Good snacks, benefits.

Cons

Terrible managers, right up to the C-Suite.

Great products and work balance

Great products and wonderful innovation. Work environment is top notch. Leadership team is too focused on stock price and not enough focus on stability, growth and leading the team. Compensation is not competitive with the industry.

Pros

Nice office environment

Cons

Compensation is at the lower end of the scale

Bad mgmt, little promoting, underpaid

Title says it all -- heavy turnover in last 12 months and mgmt is okay with folks leaving. Lots of new faces excited until they realize what its like working here. No promotions, politics becoming the norm, not a good place to come sell. Wouldn't come back here and I'm a top performer.

Pros

Nice view/office, CEO is awesome

Cons

Promotions, Compensation, Politics

Product focused and growing

Worked there a little over a year - it's a roller coaster ride but a great place to work. Surrounded by smart people that are passionate about the software that want to be there. The culture is all about being authentic and challenged.

Pros

Product focused, growth company, cool technology

Cons

Enterprise software is not for everyone, it can be complex, hard, and there is always somebody looking for more from you
