      Fun, empathetic, thoughtful company

      Pros

      NetSuite is populated by really smart people. The Waterloo office goes beyond this by having not only smart people, but empathetic people. Lots of companies talk about their "family feel". It's really rare to find a company office that lives up to that with 80+ people. People here participate in the office and really feel like they care about each other and want to help each other out. NetSuite is a very thoughtful company. They think and plan before they move, so it's rare that things come out of nowhere. Everyone at NetSuite is always trying to do their best, and we push really hard, but we don't sacrifice our work/life balance to do that. For example, I'm finishing this off as my last thing of the day before 5, and then I'm outta here.

      Cons

      Software development can be challenging. It's a legacy product, and so working in it can be really painful a lot of the time. The company is working on fixing things, but it takes time, and while that's going on we all live with the pain. Honestly, that's it. You'll hate the codebase and the dev environment, but everyone supports you in it and we're working on it. Everything else is pretty darn good.

      Pros

      Free drinks, free food once a month. Young environment for the most part and pretty much everyone is nice. Also, not that much stress in the work itself. Great work/life balance.

      Cons

      There are metrics that must be met every quarter. Nothing wrong with metrics but the amount of training and quizzes that you have to do sometimes makes you feel like you're back in school.

      Slapping on a big name doesn't make the company better. Definitely will not recommend.

      Sep 27, 2019 - NetSuite ERP Consultant

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      - Recognisable and huge company name - Nice office space - Decent pay and relatively OK work-life balance - Flexible working hours, management generally doesn't micromanage if you're hitting your hours and your customers are happy with you - You'll enjoy NetSuite if you can stand mindless politics and is content over getting to leave early on days where your workload is lighter.

      Cons

      - Management prides itself on having a wonderful work culture, and how it empowers its employees to do great things at the company. However, much of this is fluff talk and employees simply felt miserable with all the overpromising that didn't result in ANYTHING. So much fluff was promised that employees just completely gave up hope of anything coming into fruition after awhile. - Promotion scheme is ridiculous. For such a big organization, you would think that there will be more structure to how the company promotes its employees. However, employees' promotions or raises would solely depend on what upper management felt was 'deserved' by the department based on how much revenue it made that year, and not because of the merits of the employee (Referring to non-sales roles). - Management constantly tries (I think this is still happening) to find subtle ways to undercut salespeople's compensations in order to boost revenue. It is a lowly attempt and pretty appalling to witness. - Office can often feel like a highly unprofessional farmhouse (for the lack of a better word), with people randomly shouting across the room during inappropriate working hours throughout the day (this happens constantly), making it challenging to concentrate and remain efficient - Pantry is absolutely pathetic. You'll survive on a few measly biscuits and get lucky on some days with a few pieces of fruit. - Compensation offered by the company is below average as compared to other tech companies of comparable size. - Software ALWAYS had glitches. This would drive everybody crazy, as you couldn't figure out if there was something wrong with the configuration or the system. This especially tends to backfire on the team during customer demos.

      High pressure. Every month is like year end. No ability to maintain work/life balance. Although unlimited vacations, never can seem to use them.
