Former Employee - Senior Ops Engineer in Mountain View, CA

Pros

Unlimited vacation time, in the mobile development space, snack shack

Cons

Lack of planning makes every project an emergency, work many many nights and weekends. E-staff preaches core values, but does not display them. They practice replace people over keep people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many of the major issues with the work environment come from the CEO himself. Other at the VP level are not strong managers and provide little to no leadership

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook

    Pros

    It's a startup with interesting technology in a hot space (mobile + cloud). They have unlimited vacaction and free snacks. It's a good location in Mountain View.

    Cons

    The Appcelerator Employee Handbook asks everyone to give two weeks notice when leaving. I found another job that was better and paid more. So when I gave notice I was given the "bums rush" and my last day was moved up to "tomorrow". Then the manager announced to the team that I was "leaving" and my last day would be tomorrow. This is not a practice you would see at most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management can't get along with everyone then fire them

    Pros

    These are some of the best engineers I've ever worked with in mobile development. If I was starting my own company these are the people I'd contact first because they are the the top-notch best-of-breed engineers. I'm not going to mention any names but you know who I am talking about here.

    Cons

    It's hard because a lot of the key employees are located remotely. But this is what you have to do to hire good people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more of your friends because these are the only people you can trust
