A former employee said this on Indeed "Horrible place to work. Percona was a bad experience to me, I learned nothing and I was really sad and stressed almost daily. My team was the worst and my manager was a nightmare, it was a real pain to deal with. Technically speaking, he was not that bad, but he lacked of many human and social skills. In general, it was a painful experience".
Web Front End Developer (Former Employee) says"Good place to work if you're looking for remote opportunities. It was a nice experience to me, I learned a lot and I was challenged almost daily. My team was awesome but I can't say the same for my manager, it was a real pain to deal with. Technically speaking, he was great, but he lacked of many human and social skills. Cons: Bad management decisions led to early project shut down, Salary is not that great either."
Former Employee - Tech says"I worked at percona full-time for more than 3 years Cons: -Very disorganized-no strategic plans, no clear job descriptions, lots of confusion -Management will smile and say they want to help but then stab you in the back-every man for himself culture -CEO is driven by ego and company decisions are made that will boost his ego but not do much for the company overall. -sales executive team is extremely incompetent, they blame everyone else for lack of sales-they should have retired already -HR cannot be trusted and they encourage people to write good reviews on the company to boost the CEO's ego -They do not want to hear the truth, the only way to get along in the company is to agree and tell management what they want to hear. Too bad because there are many smart people who could add value if you just listen to them."
