    I have been working at Clustrix full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love it here, I'm committed to staying with Clustrix until we go public. No overbearing micromanagement, extremely intelligent employees, and, the most social engineers I've ever come across. What I love most about Clustrix is the people that work here. When you spend 40 hours a week in an office, you want it to be with good people that you can laugh with who also work hard; that's really what makes this experience (aside from the revolutionary database we keep building on). Awesome people, free snacks, unlimited sick time, 3 weeks paid vacation for everybody, Happy Hours every Friday, Bagels every Wednesday, holiday parties, a pool table, guitar hero... there's not much to complain about.

    Cons

    The review process is almost non-existent and the office can be a ghost town because of the flexibility of people's schedules. Not much face time with San Jose, Seattle, and UK employees.

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

    Pros

    I love the easy-going and understanding attitude of the management team and the excellent location in downtown San Francisco. Satellite offices in Seattle and San Jose also offer beautiful views and convenient locations downtown. There are great snacks and drinks and a lot of encouragement to have a healthy live-work balance and a healthy lifestyle. Management is afraid to make changes to make the company succeed or improve employee feelings about the company which is also important.

    Cons

    Inter-Department mingling is lacking which is unfortunate in such a small space

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

    Pros

    I enjoy working here because of the great team and a great opportunity to participate in difficult projects. We are always finding ways to improve the automation infrastructure and finding new ways to test some feature. Senior engineers are always willing to help regardless of their busy schedules.

    Cons

    Difficult to find good help. Interview a number people that claim to be senior engineers. Also, there is a number of unfriendly people, so I'm not expecting to make new friends here.

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers, challenging projects, working with new and innovative technology . Being a part of a company creating an industry changing product is exciting.

    Cons

    Potential risks from any startup (though much less with a quality / large target market), difficult to find qualified team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a lot to say. We're pushing forward in the right direction.

    Pros

    Clustrix is in its adolescence, having a shipping product for over a year and many satisfied customers. Almost all customers are willing to be reference customers. You work with lots of smart people working on real-world problems that will remind you of your computer science classes in college. Great team work, no politics.

    Cons

    As with almost every company I've worked with, can't hire enough people to do all the work in front of us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team is great! Keep up the focus on growth.

    Pros

    Growing customer base, great product, great team. There is lots to do, so there is ample opportunity for exploration and getting hands on experience.

    Cons

    With rapid growth comes growing pains. Things are constantly changing, so hold onto your hats!
    As with many startups, career progression is sometimes is not clear, though management does try to recognize top performers.
