I worked at RightScale full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
RightScale is the de facto leader in the field of cloud computing management. All the major cloud providers acknowledge this, and partner with RightScale for this reason. Lots of hard infrastructure problems to tackle. Work hard, play hard atmosphere with many fun and/or brilliant colleagues.
Having RightScale on your resume will lead to plenty of LinkedIn recruiter emails down the line, and rightfully so. You will have the opportunity to learn what works, and what doesn’t, in cloud computing.
RightScale still has the possibility to strike gold. I exercised all of my stock options for a reason. If you like challenges, RightScale will not disappoint.Cons
Frenemies with Amazon Web Services; like playing with fire.
Lots of smaller competitors have already been gobbled up, unsure what the exit strategy is now.
Somewhat revolving door in the management layer. Lacking a strong leader in engineering.
Time wasted in engineering on suboptimal tools and compliance.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Narrow the focus. Do not try to compete with AWS on features.
Seek advice on culture from employees.
Keep transparent communication with employees.
Docker is the new cloud darling, and where the VC money is flowing these days. Hence, focus on containerization.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
