Company review

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Cast Iron Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe product was interesting and had a lot of potential. Senior management were all pretty sharp.

ConsThe company operated on a shoestring budget and, as a result, employees were always scrambling to put band-aids on problems instead of finding long-term solutions.

Advice to Senior ManagementEngineering team was understaffed. Marketing seemed to get all the money. Mid-level marketing managers seemed clueless.

Review

Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cast Iron Systems

Prosthe flexible work environment. there is opportunity to step into and lead important product features and to pick up new skills.

Consthe scheduling of software releases needs improvement. the number of engineers is too low for the amount of ever increasing work load.

Advice to Senior Managementinvest in engineering resources. the resulting quality improvements will payoff in direct ways and not so direct (e.g. increased pride in work.)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
