    I have been working at Vena Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are very friendly, collaborative and motivated. Not just within each development team, but across all the teams, and across different parts of the business. The company is good at figuring out what it could do better, and putting in place the right processes, and where needed, hiring the right people, to drive change. The product is very powerful and hearing how customers have benefited from it or things they like about it is always motivating. Lots of great perks (education opportunities, employee recognition events, amazing holiday party every December, great snacks).

    Cons

    The office space, while beautiful, can be a bit noisy at times. Noise dampening should be a priority - acoustic panels, more carpets. Meeting space is hard to come by, but the company is addressing that with some future office space expansions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the culture. It's what makes Vena such a great place to work and we don't want to lose it as we grow.

    Pros

    As a fast growing company there is a lot of opportunity to learn, grow and be challenged every day that you come in. Team is very collaborative and open to feedback and advice at all levels. Executive leadership team is approachable and genuinely cares about the team at Vena.

    With the pros of growing so quickly come some challenges to build out new processes as we continue to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to survey and be transparent about results and action plans coming out of that.

    Pros

    Some of the most thoughtful, and engaged people I've ever worked with. Focus is on creating customer value and building a really inclusive, high-growth culture.

    Cons

    Just be sure that you are ready to learn and be challenged to do great work every day if you join the team. Lots of support to help along the way but we are trying to build a truly special company and that comes with the expectation that everyone is bringing their best every day.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course with your focus on the customer, the employees, and the culture.

    Pros

    The culture is amazing. A great place to work as everyone is very close and operates as one team. Strong product in a fantastic market. An exciting high growth company!

    Cons

    Vena 's solution is best in class, yet it is not a widely recognized vendor in the space yet compared to other solutions. A stronger marketing presence is needed so that Vena becomes the CPM brand that every finance person recognizes and associates with.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to continue to invest in excellent people and to continue to build upon a great culture. To fully reach its potential, continued development into an already great product and into Marketing are key
