    Pros

    CEO, Mike Capone has embedded a thriving culture here at Qlik. Truly a blessing to be lead by a top leader in this industry. Great company to work for due to the work/life balance. Major growth with the strategic acquisitions made. Pay is respectable.

    Cons

    None so far, all is well.

    Pros

    Interesting technology and some good people to work with. Work/Life balance is okay.

    Cons

    Very little growth opportunities. Very poor management in R&D. High attrition rate but management doesn't seem to care. I've heard that managers are encouraged to post positive Glassdoor reviews to boost ratings.

    Pros

    Flexibility to work with different technologies and try new things, you'll learn a lot! There are many really smart folks working at Qlik. Friendly and open environment. People are professional and respectful. There's a good work/life balance and flexibility of working from home. Perks such as different snacks, coffee, beer, and Fika (twice a week) which includes fruit, veggies and other bits and bites. Modern office and hardware.

    Cons

    The company is still going through a transition, there's lots of turn over which can sometimes affect morale. For a while there were often shifts in the direction of the product which can lead to frustration.
