"1. Very badly managed 2. Failed to achieve targets in last 3 years 3. You will be more valued for your college rather than talent."

Former Employee - Employee says

"very disorganized making leadership teams working separately with no sync between them"

Former Employee - Front Office says

"Disorganized, driven by personal relationships rather than skills or abilities. The top managers all came from the same shop, others have no chance. Use of obscenities by management is the norm. Whole departments walk out at once because of ridiculous managers. Regularly do not meet sales targets and replace the little guys."

Current Employee - Current Employee says

"Poor management, Poor perspective, Company not concerned about people's career, no road-map about the product, customers are left on a limbo once they purchase the product. We fight to get customers and the post-sales team is useless to onboard/keep them."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Essentially the entire leadership team spent a long period at Informatica - this gets reflected in the strategy and is not at all a strength. The product has significant potential, but the focus on large enterprise customers to the exclusion of all else has really hampered the product and strategy. Many resources being wasted on delivering one-off customer needs from big names, rather than improving the product overall. There has been recognition that the product needs help for a while, but user issues often get de-prioritized in favor of requests that help close a deal. Company is finally starting to pay the price in renewal and adoption issues. There's a lack of willingness to push the envelope and be innovative/experimental. Definitely doesn't feel like an exciting startup."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Terrible mid management..some really toxic personalities in biz dev, pre-sales , sales leadership that will keep hurting the company... They had a decent product but have totally lost the direction and doing all sorts of experiments instead of solving the core deficiencies in the product which are gaping and should be fixed."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"Few folks in the company (One particularly) think that they own the whole place and can treat others any way they want. His sense of entitlement is spoiling up the place as he hold's higher up place in the company. When a conflict is escalated, the exec team usually takes his side. That enforces his entitlement mentality. The guy is eating away the company single handedly - while execs watch him do that."


"Too many people with too high of an opinion of themselves refusing to listen to ideas that do not match their own plan of attack. Resistance to changes that can help the team as a whole and instead do whatever they want and then wonder why things are failing and falling down around them. Engineering spending so much time investing in one tool only to shutter it because someone else thinks they can do better only to shutter that one too because they don't know what they are doing. Starting to sell Vaporware which may, or may not fit into the product vision. No product vision because the team that should be doing that is doing anything except for that. All in all... Sales says that company X needs something to do a deal, then that becomes engineering's next priority item to get out right away no matter how feasible, stable, or fitting to the long term product strategy. Product Management is pretty much not involved at all."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"In Feb. 2016, Trifacta raised venture capital of $35M that they're planning to spend on new engineering management and few down-to-Earth senior software engineers. Previous A, B, and C series capital ejections were spent on enthusiastic software engineers with PHD degrees, no work experience and a big self-opinion. The kids made big mess and blamed QA manager and his team for the quality issues, and VPE - for "doing nothing". As a result they all got fired. Current engineers aren't happy and hate standing on daily scrums they have to. People don't smile. The workspace has no positive energy flow. No faith."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"- Sales leadership needs work. Most of sales should be better deal closers. - SDR team needs more training on getting more meetings scheduled and objection handling. - CEO is very involved and approachable. Good leader, but needs to put more fire under sales to get deals closed, and with less resources."

Team Member (Former Employee) says

"The culture at Trifacta has changed significantly over the past 3yrs, gone is the collaborative, high energy startup mentality replaced by a somewhat ruthless, sell at any cost mentality. Many managers, who were individual contributors before, are creating dissention and conflict throughout the workforcenice product, good marketingleadership says one thing, encourages different behavior"

Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) says

"Positive: work-life balance Good place to learn new technologies Flexible hours Negative: Lack of organized workflow sometimes Lack of clarity in Managers about requirements"
