    Pros

    - 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.

    Kontras

    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. ...

    (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...

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Elastic (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Everything I hoped for and more - Distributed by design, the culture needed for this kind of thing to actually work and scale appears to be successfully transmitted. - You talk to older employees and almost all of them are surprised that it has scaled. - Organization tries to measure and improve employee engagement. - Thoughtful leadership and approach to solving problems in the competitive market has been inspiring...

    Kontras

    - Not much room for juniors to come in as the company is distributed. I don't believe that someone extremely junior could get what they need. Average age in the company is older as a result of not hiring juniors. Not really a con, just unfortunate that people can't experience Elastic until they are further on in their career. - Can be disorienting on-boarding. Distributed companies can "highlight" mental health risks...

    Keep focusing on the source code, over-communicate it again and again and again, because it's working. The source code and the culture are so important and it was transmitted to me within a few months. If we can keep the source code moving through the new hires, I don't know what the limits of the company are.

    Pros

    Management is incredible, Shay (CEO) has no ego and everyone is free to voice concerns with zero fears of repercussion. Fridges are fully stocked, ping pong tables and even yoga breaks throughout the day. Managers (especially in sales) make sure you are successful from day one and care about your wellbeing!

    Kontras

    I honestly can't think of any. The only potential concern I see is that about 90% of our business is based on license sales and that 95% of those license sales are motivated by the security plug-in. Some of our largest customers aren't renewing because they can get elasticsearch security for free/cheaply from Amazon Elasticsearch Open Distro or with Search Guard.

    Keep doing what you're doing! Don't give in to Amazon!
