    Avantages

    Working with the most skilled team I've ever met. Freedom. Trust. International company. Mind blowing technologies. Probably one of the next most successful companies...

    Inconvénients

    Distributed team all around the world is sometimes hard to work with. This company actually never sleeps! :)

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the good work. Keep on going transparency. It's super important to know what is happening and learn from our mistakes and success...

    Avantages

    Distributed work environment. Policy of giving everyone the benefit of the doubt and assuming the best of your co-workers. Talented, ambitious, driven teams and yet humble teams. Experienced management. Hot market, cool technology, what seems to be a once in a lifetime work at a unicorn opportunity.

    Inconvénients

    Pace of learning is fast (this could be a Pro also). Pace of business is relentless (again could be a Pro). We are growing very quickly and the convivial, collegiate, inclusive culture which is a phenomenal thing to be a part of, can generate an enormous amount of non-transactional communication.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep it up. Double down on developing your employees. Keep attracting the best. Keep pushing. Look inward for promotions there's a lot of talent on the team.

    Je travaille chez Elastic à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    1) Culture from top down is organizational nirvana. Don’t just take my word for it, read it for yourself (yes it’s published as the “elastic source code” just to give you an idea of how real it is).

    2) Open Source .

    3) The culture inspires collaboration which includes disagreements in a collegial manner.

    Inconvénients

    1) Every org has an opportunity to recognize how it can improve.

    2) With growth comes fear of growth from losing the culture and follow the sun distributed model leads to WW schedules.

    3) Upside to working hard. It should be noted Elastic offers the flexibility to drop and pick up your kids from school and actually be present in their lives (Have a cat/dog/kid who wants to sit on your lap during a conf call it’s all good! Need to bring your kid into work, there is a game room in Mtn View — upsides to the con)!

    5) It’s a late stage you will work hard (builders welcome) not sure this is a con if you really love building. Upside is weekends are downtime for the most part.

    Conseils à la direction

    Great job on scaling and focusing on the “humble and ambitious.” #thanku

    Avantages

    The growth here has been insane and there are certainly shifts that need to occur. However, this is not a negative in my opinion. Cultures have to adapt and change, so seeing all of these new faces who bring new perspectives and ideas make me even more excited to see what’s to come. In response to the reviews about micromanagement, I have to disagree. I am treated as a professional all the time. I manage my own calendar. Yes, I may have to take a call earlier or later than if I was in an office but I am also afforded the opportunity to see my kids if I have a break, head to a doctor if needed without taking time off and other huge perks which I value.
    - The people here are truly top notch. I am lucky to now know individuals I consider friends across almost all continents
    - I truly do believe in our products and trajectory. I’m not a technical person, but I still think what we do is awesome

    Inconvénients

    I honestly cannot think of any worth writing

    Conseils à la direction

    I say continue doing what you’re doing. We cannot stay small forever and evolving is part of life. Can’t wait to see what the future brings

    Je travaille chez Elastic à plein temps (Pendant plus de 3 ans)

    Avantages

    Pay is decent and the products generally fill a current market need. The quality of most of the staff is a little above average.

    Inconvénients

    There is no room for any personal ambition or ideas that fall outside of those that come from the "inner circle". As long as you drink your daily dose of Kool-Aid, bow in worship to Shay (CEO) and keep your mouth shut(!!!), all will be well.

    However, if you dare to voice your own ideas, even if they are clearly a significant step forward, be prepared to become a future ex-employee. It has happened too many times to ignore, and at all levels of the organization.

    Many of us simply do that. We keep our head down and collect our paycheck until we find our next role. Hopefully that will be at a place that truly values our contributions.

    Conseils à la direction

    You say on your website: "No need to invest neurons trying to fit an arbitrary mold. We’d rather you put them to work shaping Elastic."

    It sounds nice, but you need to really start to live it.

    Avantages

    Interesting product, smart people, competitive pay.

    Inconvénients

    This company is not what it was a year ago. As it gears to go public, it has added many people to the organization.

    New additions to the organization shake up the culture. Elastic's roots are dissipating. It no longer is a place for curious individuals who wish to make a difference in the open source world.

    The notable change has been a shift toward micromanagement. People who are considering joining the organization must be aware that everything you do all day will be tracked and used against you. We are distributed by design, which in theory is beautiful. However, in reality you will actually lose a great deal of autonomy.

    Be prepared for people to talk behind your back. Transparency is not common. You will be punished for trying to do the right thing. Favoritism is rampant.

    Conseils à la direction

    Go back to our roots and values as an organization. Our rapid growth has caused us to forget our commitment to our users. Employees understand that with autonomy comes responsibility. Invest more in making sure that employees are happy.

    J'ai travaillé chez Elastic en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - The people. Many all-star individual contributors who I enjoyed working with.
    - Good product with a lot of demand for it in the market.
    - Remote work culture. Please also see my remarks under Cons.

    Inconvénients

    Elastic is a toxic place in many ways. Not a great place to work at.

    - Work/life balance? Forget it! Please do not have a private life!
    - Remote work culture. Big brother is watching you! Better keep that in mind when using electronic devises. They track everything you do!
    - No performance review or development process in place at all. All that matters is if your management likes you or not. As simple as that.
    - “Clique”-like mentality. If you have not been with Elastic from the start you will never be trusted. You will be told how things have to be done at Elastic. So please stop thinking!
    - Do NOT EVER invest your time in strategic work to build future pipeline. Closing transactional business is all they are looking for. Focus on the here and now and please – STOP THINKING! People of the first hour and your warden will do it for you.
    - Slack. They call it their preferred communication channel. Management misuses it to get real-time updates all day long and if you don’t answer the same minute you get to hear things like “Stop ignoring me. I am your manager. Understood?”. Slack is a disease at Elastic. Slack is extremely distracting from what is truly important. It is like an annoying co-worker who keeps talking to you all day long without a pause. The manager I was reporting to called himself a “slack addict” and was entirely dedicated to his hidden agenda. Was at war with marketing people, managers from different regions and people reporting into him.
    - Recruitment is a disaster. I was asked to participate in interviews and I could not believe some of these guys survived the first or even second screenings. What a waste of time!
    - Senior management needed to approve USD 5k deals. Micromanagement at its best!
    - This is not an organization for smart people. Senior management will make sure that you understand how lucky you are to be part of this fantastic company and how things need to be done at Elastic.
    - As they grow organizations need to hand on the torch from managers to leaders. Leaders who understand and execute the idea that it is a privilege to lead people.
    - Mobbing is a big issue in the team I joined. A peer got fired for bullying. Couple of peers and my manager backed him before things escalated. Only got worse afterwards. Very toxic place!

    Conseils à la direction

    (1) Get a performance review and development process in place asap.
    (2) Start investing in your people (and management) and appreciate their work and diverse backgrounds and personalities.
    (3) Establish a leadership culture and stop the harsh judgement of people based on sympathy only. I believe you will not be able to do this without external help.

    Greatness and culture come from true appreciation and making sure that smart people can perform at their natural best instead of “squeezing the lemon”.
