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

    Pros

    Lot's to learn, lot's to do. Snack and drinks are a very nice thing to have. They try really hard to have a positive culture. Will look fantastic on your resume.

    Cons

    No project ownership. Many tasks are refactoring code, fixing bugs, or worse, adding features without any chance to fix the underlying code. Way to much process, easy to get held up for a week. Management gives no feedback until it's to late. Reviews are mandatory but don't matter when it comes to pay considerations. Some team members work constantly, at all hours and every day. This makes a 50-60 hour week light in comparison, and management encourages you to complete more projects to 'get on par'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some process, be prompt with feedback and expectations, encourage project ownership and discourage project pirates.

    Pros

    The culture and people that encompasses Acquia are unparalleled. Every day is enjoyable and people truly do look forward to collaborating.

    Feedback and performance reviews are not systematic or regular. You have to seek it out yourself and expectations are often unclear.
