    I worked at Ensequence full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some very bright, hardworking talent on staff. Most of the people generally get along and work well together. Good feeling of community among the majority of the staff. (Now...if only they could abandon those high-walled cubicles

    Cons

    Senior management often unsure of the company's overall path forward...a lot of trying something out, then gauging the success (or lack of) and then adjusting their approach accordingly. That's fine, but the roller coaster ride (as I've heard others describe it) is tiring and the poorly executed rounds of layoffs caused a good portion of the top talent to leave for more stable companies. On that note, Ensequence has the feel of start-up, in that opportunities to learn and move up are available, but the overall stability of the company is questionable. And, while the company has been in existence since 2000 and has raised tens of millions in investor capital during that time, it has yet to find a successful (read:profitable) business model, spending more money to develop its products than is made from the sale of said products.

    As for what I alluded to in my title, if your the 4th person hired to a specific role in ~3 years (as was my case), you need to learn about this before you accept the offer and consider whether you want to deal with it, or rather, consider the other job offers you have. Lesson learned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Something they (I'm sure) already know: when various members of senior management are leaving for other companies, combined with the rounds of layoffs, this creates a genuine concern (panic for some) among the rank and file. For the sake of the company and it's current staff, please exercise some discretion...
