    Pros

    Azul is a great place if you are technically strong and want to work on interesting things. Over the last several years, the company has transitioned to pure software products and the strategy appears to be working. Management seems to be making the right decisions on bringing in new leadership as needed, and does not allow poor performers to stick around. Company culture is fun and supportive, and you can achieve healthy work/life balance here.

    Cons

    Company has been around for some time now (since 2002) and there is some legacy still left of the hardware business which probably is not ideal compared to a new software startup company.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the product portfolio to have a broader set of product offerings.


  2. A great place to be, but may be a little uncomfortable for your family

    Pros

    Great technology. Amazing people to work with (and to work for). Lot of freedom to get the work done right.

    Cons

    While I was there, the hardware team was laid off upon completion of the project; the sales teams were constantly being laid off; and there were constant discussions of layoffs, bankruptcy, etc.


  3. Technically sound!!! Poor management and lack of process

    Pros

    The developers here are world class. Poor management and lack of process. But can be balanced.

    Cons

    Need to brush up management skills. The current management is ruining faith in the company.

    Advice to Management

    employees are loosing faith after change of management.

    Pros

    The teamwork and camaraderie with not only the IT staff but the entire staff.

    Cons

    None, I cannot think of one reason why one would not consider working there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire me back. ;-)

    Pros

    Nice people around, guru's are ready to help, it's worry-free enviroment even if you are a green horn. Former employees will like to come back and play together!
    We share each achievement and celebrate together!
    Zing JVM is really cool, and we are supporting more and more industries!

    Cons

    Yes, we need work harder on hiring

    Advice to Management

    You guys are just terrific!

    Pros

    Recently, Azul did something really nice to show appreciation to employees for Azul's 10th anniversary. I can't say what it was due to confidentiality restrictions, but suffice is to say it was a nice surprise and excited the whole company! Nice to see the Executives and the Board taking care of the employees!

    Cons

    It would be better if there were more engineers to be able to support customers and also work on the product roadmap. There is a lot of work for a pretty small engineering team.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit, recruit, recruit more engineers!

    Pros

    Lots of toys to play with. It is rare to be able to work with so much cool technology in one place. Managed runtimes, JIT compilers and optimizers, garbage collectors, kernel modules, profilers, etc.

    Cons

    Smaller company, works and feels like early stage internally. Much of the company stuff you'd find in a 200+ person company is not there (HR, process, etc.).

    Pros

    Really interesting and varied technology (virtual machines, JIT compilers, Linux kernel)
    Very nice and professional people
    Startup environment

    Cons

    Like most startups, under-staffed
    Lots of time spent supporting customers instead of new development work

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Can't grow the business effectively without more people to support customers and also develop future products!
