ThoughtSpot Named One of 50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work For

Sponsored by Businesswire

the leader in search & AI-driven analytics, was recognized as one of the 50
Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For
in a
list released by Battery
, a global investment firm and cloud investor, with data
specifically provided by Glassdoor*,
one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. The list highlights
50 privately held companies—all business-to-business, cloud-computing
companies—where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at
work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.

The distinction placed ThoughtSpot at number 40 (out of 50 total) with
an overall company rating of 4.6. The broader average across Glassdoor
is 3.4. ThoughtSpot’s CEO, Sudheesh Nair, boasts a 100% approval rating
on Glassdoor—compared to an average of 69% for all approximately 900,000
employers on the site—and the company has a 91% positive
business-outlook rating, again based on feedback shared by employees.
The broader Glassdoor average is 49%. A positive business outlook means
employees believe business will improve in the next six months.

This is the third year Battery has issued the list, along with a related
ranking of the 25 Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies to Work
For. The rankings highlight the broader trend of businesses increasingly
turning to the cloud to run critical technology systems and software,
instead of using on-premise systems.

They also highlight the increasing importance of cohesive culture and
employee happiness in running a successful business, said Neeraj
Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing.

“The private companies on this list have not only scaled their products,
teams and business functions—but they’ve managed to scale culture,”
Agrawal said. “We view these rankings as a key indicator of company
health and longevity, and we hope all companies on this list view it as
an honor to be included.” It was also more difficult to make the list
this year, compared with last year, Agrawal added. A Glassdoor economic
research study,
as well as other third party studies,
show that companies with high employee satisfaction often post stronger
financial performance.

“At ThoughtSpot, we have a highly ambitious goal to create a more
fact-driven world by empowering every person with the ability to analyze
data. We’re lucky enough to have a team with the passion, talent, and
grit to drive such transformation,” said ThoughtSpot CEO Sudheesh Nair.
“I’m incredibly honored to work with a team that embodies our culture of
selfless excellence, going above and beyond at everything they do not
for personal glory, but for the good of the team, our customers, and
society at large. Today’s recognition from Battery Ventures and
Glassdoor is a testament to every ThoughtSpotter for building a company
where people can do the best work of their lives.”

Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly
mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven
companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that
promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who
regularly and clearly communicate with employees. For instance,
according to one anonymous employee review of ThoughtSpot on Glassdoor,
the best parts of working at ThoughtSpot include:

“The culture! Our leaders talk all day about self-less excellence and
it’s so true! Everyone goes out of their way to be a team player and
work on the big picture goal. And the opportunities! This market is HOT
and once you see the product and the company’s vision, the sky is the
limit. This product can change the world for the better.”
