    I have been working at Atlantis Computing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The quality of the people in the company is by far the best I've been associated with in my 15+ year career.
    The value proposition of the products is unparalleled in the storage industry and the company has the potential to dominate an emerging and fast growing market.
    The strategy that we are executing now is both very exciting, disruptive and well thought-out relative to competition that are delivering relatively incremental improvements over the status quo.

    Cons

    It is challenging growing the company and evolving strategy is a very dynamic and fast moving market. If you don't like change, this is not the company for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on solving customer problems. Our customers and ability to innovate to solve their problems are our biggest competitive advantages.
    Make sure the flow of ideas from the field and engineering translate into product innovation. We have smart and innovative employees.

    Pros

    Strong management team, great technology, and good sense of teamwork. The company is positioning itself to become the leader in the software defined storage industry.

    Cons

    The teams are lean, so they are expected to work pretty long hours, especially prior to product deadlines and quarter ends. The technology is great, but very complicated, so it's not easy to understand or implement without putting in the extra effort.

    Pros

    We're in on the ground floor of a disruptive technology that will change the landscape of a very important and large industry. Storage will not be the same when we're done, and it's great to be a part of that.

    Cons

    Need to work hard - can be demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep driving the change. Communicate the vision inside and out.

    Technology is game-changing. Ability to make a big change in a disruptive way to a very large industry. Organization is growing quickly and senior management is generally very strong. Hard core work ethic, but personal achievements recognized.

    Cons

    Hard work required. Can't really slack here.

    Pros

    Free Costco junk food.
    Close by - no commute.

    Cons

    Backstabbing as a common practice.
    One huge room with tables to work on like a sweat-shop, with supervisors always looking over your shoulder.
    No private laptop for each employee.

    I worked at Atlantis Computing full-time

    Pros

    Great technology, very simple to understand and use, very effective.

    Very forward focused, should do well given how flexible the technology is.

    Cons

    Very focused on select large customers to the detriment of all others.

    Doesn't appear to listen very well to smaller customers, or take much interest in feedback from employees.

    I have been working at Atlantis Computing full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Exciting technologies with some very passionate people on the team.
    The lure of big things to come.
    CTO/Founder is a great evangelist and easy to work with.
    New systems and teams (marketing, CRM, portal, etc).
    This upcoming half of a year will make or break the company.

    Cons

    Visibility and communication are extremely lacking.
    Massive turnover and reorganizing.
    No management whatsoever. Asking for when a deal is closing is not managing.
    No perks whatsoever.
    Benefits are so-so.
    CEO can lash out, but usually has good reason.
    Internal infrastructure was previously built on duct tape and bailing wire, this is being addressed.
    CEO, for lack of a better term, is 'cheap'. Very frugal and barebones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate!! Provide visibility to what's going on. Constant correspondence especially for those who are in the field. Make your employees your first priority. Without them, you will not succeed. Feedback, coaching, mentoring, and career advancement are important to a lot of people. Discuss this.
