    Micromanaged Fast Growing Company

    Former Employee - Sales
    Former Employee - Sales

    I worked at Acquia full-time

    Pros

    The guy who created Drupal is there, and the company has the best Drupal talent in the market. Their Professional Services team can't be beat and the in-house tech team is very talented. They also have a very impressive client list.

    Cons

    It's the most micromanaged company that I have every experienced. There are meetings about meetings to get updates to the updates, and it's never enough. The micromanagement is a terrible waste of time and shows a lack of trust in the employees.

    The goal all along seemed to be focused on an IPO. It never felt like things were growing organically. Always felt like the Board wanted specific results to get to the IPO, and the Management would micromanage based on the Board's expectations. They were really putting the cart before the horse.

    Merge with or buy Phase2. If Acquia had a development arm they would have a monopoly on the Drupal market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your hiring process. If you hire properly you won't need to micromanage as your employees will be capable of doing the job you are paying them to do.

    Focus more on your product than you do the IPO. If you do what you're supposed to the IPO will happen.

    Accept that you are a business and not just a profitable arm of this open-source community. Offer Development services.
