    I have been working at ElasticBox full-time

    Pros

    -Work on innovative ideas to improve cloud automation and simplify devops.
    -Constantly learn and add to your skill set. You'll learn all the latest and cool cloud technologies.
    -Contribute at any level that you are capable at.
    -Give feedback to improve processes.
    -Work informally in a small enough team without being distracted from interruptions and meetings to do meaningful work.
    -Work in a flat hierarchy. No managers to micro manage you. You are your own boss and drive your contributions.
    -Work from the city (we're moving soon). Or work from Spain and London as we've offices there.
    -Enjoy loads of snacks and a healthy, free Whole Foods catered lunch.

    Cons

    Passion for the kind of work we do is alone not sufficient to fuel employee motivation. It's in the little things. Think of events to boost the morale, teamwork spirit and the culture. Believe me, people will deliver much, much more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Keep up the agile work style and tactics to give more context and allow a smooth flow of info between different functions.

    -Add 401K, a healthy vacation policy, and better gym perks.

    Pros

    Good set of folks, great engineering team (distributed across San Francisco and Madrid), awesome but small Sales team. Revenues are terrific and company has looking to grow exponentially. Humble Leaders and the company does not hold back on spending money on its employees. Great office spaces (not dingy ones like most startups these days have), free lunches, awesome perks and flex hours....

    Cons

    Moving offices from Mountain View to San Francisco... but there is some flex with telecommuting so its not too bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No changes.
