    I worked at Planview full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Witnessed the growth from start up to being what it is today and the innovation drive has always been there There is a true sense of belonging

    Cons

    With growth comes pain and some of the painpoints are just being ignored or buried which makes work for those who care hard to the breaking point Being owned by an investment company to date makes the drive of the company shift , an investment company is there to leverage their investment and the return on investment is sometimes to the detriment of the company long term Feels there is way too much overhead , from lean delivery teams we have too many segmented titles involved

    I have been working at Planview full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I made a lot of assumptions coming here and that’s part my fault. They have a very slim customer base which means they find ways of making sure the customer pays.

    Cons

    Most of the labor comes from diverse backgrounds including overseas help. Many have never managed projects. So if you want to have big margins then hire resources for rick bottom prices which billing industry standard rates. So embarrassed I’m here.

    I have been working at Planview full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a ping pong table and the management team doesn’t micromanage. Most people are nice and the office looks cool. They pay ramp for the first six months.

    Cons

    Deals take too long considering the relatively small average deal size. Very, very few customers see the product as having much value- all my customers quit using the product before I even started. There are almost no new logo leads and reps rely on run rate business for at least half to maybe all of their revenue, depending on the rep/ territory. Therefore, if they give you a territory without a growing customer base, you’re set up for failure. The leads are handled by SDRs who weren’t trained and basically just send emails all day while watching YouTube videos. Most people who like being AEs here were promoted from within. The SC team is super complacent and not very helpful. If you’re an outside candidate, you’ll likely quit within a year.

    I have been working at Planview full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I am with Planview for almost a year now and I must say that this is one of the best places to work with. The teams here are very young, energetic and techies where there is a great scope to learn and explore new ideas and technologies. The company believes and follows a flat hierarchy and has an open door policy. The work-life balance is really commendable. The work culture here is amazing. True space for teamwork. In-house facilities like cafeteria, pantry, library, games, and parking slots are well sufficed.

    Cons

    Cab facility is not provided.

    Freedom to pursue ideas or interests.. build interesting solutions from a technical perspective and have known people who switched from backend to frontend, test automation to backend, and so on based on interest (provides learning opportunity) Encourages learning.. like learning on the job, books, others experiences Fosters collaboration.. team work over individual's work, more meeting spaces, and collab tools.

    Limited work from home as the belief is in direct human collaboration No individual awards or honors.. believes in collaboration as opposed to individual stardom No food coupons Role absence in local office.. Managment notes but action takes time
