    I have been working at Axcient

    Pros

    The product is technologically advanced and "disruptive," solving critical business issues for customers. The culture is performance-driven while also maintaining a team environment that is just outright fun. The management team is strong, and the CEO is a charismatic visionary.

    Cons

    The problem the Company is solving is difficult and not everyone is ready for a cloud-based backup, disaster recovery, and business continuity solution (though they should be). However, solving difficult problems results in the greatest ROI's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep staying focused!

    I worked at Axcient full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good in startup company standard. Location, location, location..great location for bikers and runners. Good people.

    Cons

    It's not a product company. The service Axcient provides is not an enterprise grade service. It is amateurish service and barely works. But the company management is daydreaming to make it a billion dollar company and going to IPO! The technology and software used for the backup service is stuck is time-capsule. Although engineering team is tweaking and dancing around the software, but overall service is not improving and company is not growing as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Serious rethinking is required to improve the service and grow the company. Software you are using is substandard and the technology you are using is outdated. Time to rethink and refocus. Spend less time on marketing gimmicks and more time on real technology.
