    David competing with Goliaths

    Architect (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsFast paced startup competing against giants like Box/Dropbox and now Gdrive,zocalo. Work is challenging and you need to wear multiple hats. Minimal bureaucracy and a very flat hierarchy in engineering.

    Consnone that I can think of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus is the key. We should make the product a little simple by removing unused or barely used features.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Think enterprise cloud, think Egnyte

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsThe biggest pro for me is that this company has a very clear thought leadership; it has correctly identified the cloud file-sharing problem at an enterprise-scale. Its solution architecture is well thought out and answers all the pertinent questions for an enterprise customer considering cloud storage as another tier. To me, this is the fundamental driver for a technology-driven company. Get your basics right.

    Added to this, it has a management team that fully understands the growth potential of this technology and is willing to stand by it; having worked in multiple companies including startups, I know by now how companies start with a solution architecture that gets worked and reworked over time which leads to unnecessary time and cost overheads. The management team is fully backed by an outstanding board and that tells a lot.

    Finally at the grass-roots, the execution team has all that it takes to deliver. It is really gratifying to work in an environment where you know that you are heard and believe that you are making a positive difference.

    ConsCloud storage technology is a crowded space and there are lots of players with different product offerings. You have to stay ahead of the curve not just from a product perspective, but also as an individual you need to challenge and push yourself to do more than just your charter. This might work for some people, but may not work for some others.

    Not the best sales environment, they deem everyone expendable

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsCool new office, some good people there. Has potential for the market they are in. VP of products (Rajesh Ram) is awesome.

    ConsSales management is very negative towards the sales team. Manage by fear and being passive aggressive. Does not believe in work life balance. If you are not working the weekend on the last weekend of the month then you are not committed to to the cause.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally need some new folks in there with experience trying to get a company to the next level. Learn to appreciate the employees you have, not berate them and talk down to them. Does not make a good work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
