    I worked at Appcelerator full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Great engineering team, with some of the smartest people I have worked with.
    2. Have opportunity to learn and be exposed to many different technologies: iOS/Android/Windows/BlackBerry/... native platform, JavaScript/Java/Object-C/... as languages, then you have IDE/Cloud/...;
    3. Hot space and you feel you're right in the middle of the mobile wave and contributing;
    4. Very good kitchen, fully stocked.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, even with all these positives, all those great engineers have been leaving left and right after the company stopped caring for them and turned the culture completely into sale-focused instead of engineering-focused. When engineering team delivered a massive release with tons of new features, the executive team would focus on the misses instead and hardly celebrate the accomplishments, but when sales missed their numbers (consistently), they simply lowered the projection and still went on trips and handed out awards. At one time, the end of year bonus for each person on the team was $25 Amazon gift certificate. The compensation is also not competitive in today's Silicon Valley market, and there were no mentions of salary raise until one decided to leave. The morale of whole engineering team was consistently low when keeping people feel energized should have not been difficult with the built-in positives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering is the heart-and-soul of any tech companies, so treat them with respect and care for them.
