This company is going places - get a front row seat

Marketing (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Egnyte full-time for more than a year

ProsMany growth opportunities. Love coming in everyday to be a part of this ride. Having been around startups, don't take this for granted. The energy and sense of teamwork in the company is what does it for me.

ConsNot enough hours in the day...there are so many things to do. Prioritization and focus can be challenging at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe are kicking butt...keep at it. Look forward to a new bigger office soon.

Fast paced, great learning experience

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Egnyte full-time for less than a year

ProsWork is challenging. Lots of projects in diverse areas. Extremely talented people. Strong mentor system in place to help new hires get up to speed. Weekly tech talks. Free food on 2 days of the week + snacks in kitchen.

ConsIf you are not sincere you will be left behind. Need to don multiple hats (dev, automation, customer calls, training) which many may not find appealing. Too many releases so becomes chaotic. Really need more people.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going strong. Invest in the right people. More company sponsored events would be nice.

Avoid it like the plague - toxic work environment and no corporate values.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Egnyte full-time for less than a year

ProsThe company is in a hot space and could have been a serious threat to Box and Dropbox if they fixed their corrosive work culture.

ConsNo concept of work-life balance. Team Leads and managers are extremely unprofessional - routine use of racial slurs and occasional violence in team meetings. Unreasonable deadlines. Penny-pinching when it comes to investing in Engineering resources leading to a crippled Engineering team.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in hiring Engineers so that product quality can match competitors. Realize that Engineers are human beings and enforce the code of conduct within the company to ensure legal and ethical behavior by Team Leads at all times.
