Thread regarding Qlik Technologies Inc. layoffs

More layoffs at Qlik

Massive cuts to Qlik R&D this past week worldwide. Many good people lost their jobs, while many incompetent people kept their jobs. Qlik had a chance to trim the fat and completely missed the mark.

Found this in another thread, bumped it to the front for info. I hope @Rb4zZCj-lcav does not mind.

@4Npgi+Ry6sGgO: Indeed "clowns" is the right description of the management and decision making body at Qlik. I worked for Qlik for 3.5 years and was subjected to quite a roller coster ride akin to that in an episode of Max Sennet's Keystone Cops. What can I say - Extremely incompetent management!! I was based on US (Massachusetts) and travelled frequently to Lund, Sweden and Ottawa Canada. At the time I was part of Qlik , Qlik was anything but a single company. Basically there were two silos which were making all decisions regarding projects and future directions. Each of those silos were extremely biased to anybody who was not in their circle of trust. All my fellow engineers who were based on Massachusetts were NOT in the Swedish circle of trust and were subjected to ridiculous decisions which did not make any sense. Many of my colleagues who were experienced engineers with 20+ years of experience were fired. I left on my own volition because I was assigned to a clown-manager who was Swedish. Now 2 years have passed since I left Qlik and I am so happy I did it before this whole COVID crazyness. Good luck to anybody who is still at Qlik and is not in one of the two silos.

I worked for these clowns and was fired.

I worked for these clowns and was fired. Three bosses in 6 months, non of them co-located. They were rotten about letting me collect. All these talk about such a great culture was non-sense.

In my location they got rid of the most incompetent ones which I think is a good thing.
