    Former Employee - Field Solutions Engineer in San Mateo, CA

    I worked at Guavus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed the freedom to work from home and the opportunity to travel. The people I met were of generally high caliber, technically speaking. The compensation was decent, but not outstanding.

    Cons

    The continuous contention between US systems architects and deployment managers and the India-based engineering team made for a frustrating work environment. It constantly felt like our requests fell on deaf ears. It frequently felt like the engineering team had a thin skin, and that pointing out problem areas was interpreted as some kind of personal attack, or judgment of their competency. As a result, the work environment had an "us vs. them" feel. Over time, I felt like I was constantly pushing for changes I wanted to see, but nobody listened, or perhaps nobody cared. I felt like my energy to improve the company—which I wanted to do—was being stifled and crushed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please not only listen to employee concerns and complaints, but actually act on them. If you do not, sooner or later your employees will go somewhere their voices will be heard and feel like their contributions will have an impact.
