    Pros

    The benefit is very great. Work experience and boss are very helpful.

    "Toxic management/environment"

    1.0
    Former Employee - Account Executive 
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Datadog full-time

    Pros

    None, the worse company I have ever worked for because of the bad and toxic management/environment.

    Cons

    Don’t even bother trying to use your professional experience as they don’t care about it; even though that’s what you were hired for. They micromanage everything you do and leadership are all in cahoots together, so complaining to leadership or HR gets you nowhere.

    I worked at Datadog full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cutting edge product designed for modern arquitectures. Somewhat of a niche but it excels in that space

    Cons

    On,y 10-15% of sales reps hit quota. You will lose a large portion of your income. Quotas are mostly unobtainable, sales culture is very toxic, focused on certain individuals only. High pressure environment and micromanaging
