    I worked at Acquia full-time (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

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! and take sometime to work with your employees to reach a goal

    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.

    Very pleased you love our culture and values. It's the center of creating a great company in my opinion, and we work hard to sustain them. Certainly helps, because as you rightfully point out ... More
