    Get over the start-up mentality.

    I worked at BigMachines for less than a year

    Pros

    Arduous interview process. Friendly open fun casual work environment.

    Cons

    They are a 12 year old company pretending to be a new start-up. Most hires are freshers. If you are over 30 look elsewhere. There is no diversity or opportunity when it comes to age.

    Extreme amounts of work being done by a very small team

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

    Pros

    Everyone that works there is incredibly smart and driven. You almost won't find a more talented team anywhere.

    Cons

    There is literally no work/life balance. Employees are "expected" to work up to 12 hours a day (8 in the office, another 4-5 once they get home). If you happen to be "on-call" that week, don't expect to get more than 2 hours of sleep a night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people so everyone else isn't getting burned out.
