I worked at Acquia full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fun atmosphere, being a part of company that is growing rapidly. there are plenty of activities that work to bring the teams together, and plenty of free beer to fill those activities. For the most part there are a lot of great people there but that is changing quickly.

Cons

No work life balance at all and there is no room for error. They like to think that they are all having fun and it's great to be there but I think they do that to disguise the hours that you have to be there. Even if you are done with your work and have nothing to do, don't even think about leaving before 6:30. Even if it's a family emergency

    I have been working at Acquia full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment. Very open, collaborative, free food and drinks all the time! Fun culture, monthly activities and team building. Friendly co workers.

    Cons

    Really a sink or swim experience. Somewhat overwhelming when you start and there is really no one to help you after onboarding. You kind of have to find your own way. There seems to be a lot of ego rolling around the office as well which doesn't help the communication among some of the staff.

    Pros

    Strong leadership, great products, free beer and snacks!

    Cons

    No sales training for new employees, not willing to invest in employees long term. Very "sink or swim" right from day 1.
