    I have been working at Cyan full-time (more than a year)


    If you like Sonoma County living and you want to work in tech, this is the place
    You are expected to work hard, but not crazy hard
    The technologies being developed are cutting edge
    Very nice team of people


    For a software company, lacks leadership with deep knowledge of the business side of software
    Lack of project management and formal product lifecycle leads to poor communication and missed dates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See Cons. These are easy things to fix through key hiring and top-down implementation of the processes you would expect to see at a company that is two years post-IPO.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
