      Good Product Company but has scope to better

      Oct 22, 2020 - Senior Product Manager in Chennai
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Work From home - Very friendly environment - Bay area type culture - Great work-life balance. Personal life and time respected very much - Salary better than most other software companies in Chennai (but not better than Amazon, PayPal, Walmart Labs,Google, Adobe and all Tier 1 product companies) - Business class travel from Director level - Good Bonus. Has been mostly above 100% last couple of years - Very capable set of co-workers and leaders to work with - Amazing leave policies and push to take vacations mandatory every year - HR team act like friends to u. U will have friends everywhere - Amazingly neat Org structure with Product org having CPO, eng org having CTO, Cloud Org, Customer success Org, Ops Org etc WITH GLOBAL REPORTING in place setting as a true GLOBAL WORKPLACE. This part is better than some of top product companies like Amazon or Google even. Overall in the list of TOP 10 BEST PRODUCT COMPANIES TO WORK FROM CHENNAI PERSPECTIVE and AMAZED to be part. If acceptance there to improve to be best comparing with top product companies, it's good for company on longer run

      Cons

      - Cultural and capability dilution from being a top product company visible sometimes. Don't desire to compete on talent acquisition in the league of Amazon, PayPal, Google etc. They themselves consider to accept themselves as not equal to Tier-1 product company but just one level less as per voices sometimes from leadership - No food benefits, Campus benefits are less comparitive to other top product companies, No stock nowadays to dev and managers. Only from D level but Managers, SMs who joined before 2 years have share benefit - Equity and stock options 2 years ago existed for all employees and now limited to Director above level not in line with top product companies. Reiteration that top management and senior leaders don't have a vision to be a disruptive top platform company but get convinced to be a good company. Good to Great desire or plan may not be much visible - Better to negotiate good package while entering itself because hikes will be standard and NOT great even during promotions. Career growth financially might become a challenge - Compromise will be seen a lot and passion to be best PRODUCT COMPANY in industry not visible. Comparisons will be made as we are better than many services companies and captives and so great who are below them rather comparing companies above them like Google Health, Amazon, Apple health, PayPal, Adobe to see how we can disrupt and evolve to be best company. This mindset might be visible everywhere (Top to bottom) and tough to change and improve thinking - Disruption will not be spoken about. Mostly incremental growth - HR benchmarking on career progression for Athenahealth employees can better. Say how many people do we have who have grown from dev to a Director (also financially having a bike to buy a BMW or Audi) growing along with company. Kindly measure this which will be ultimate success but you may notice less examples for now but I'm sure with openness to realize this and accept company can amazingly change
