Pros

If you believe in free/open-source software use, this company is focused on just that. It's a great place for people that have interest in progressive licensing.

Cons

Location: Waltham, MA. The commute is terrible for most of us, having no public transportation and the highways and back-roads around the office are perpetually congested.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None public.

    I worked at Black Duck Software

    Pros

    The offices are very nice, and are customized for Black Duck with all size conference rooms and even small private rooms for making phone calls. There is a nice work culture, and it is still small enough that you can get to know people in other departments . People enjoy socializing with each other more than I've seen at other places. High quality employees throughout the company who are motivated and work hard. The walls are lined with black rubber ducks to prove that we are a "quirky" and "fun" company.

    Cons

    The company is in its awkward teenage years, in-between a small start up, and a big company. but lacking the benefits of both. Departments don't seem to talk and collaborate with each other well, as you would expect in a start up, and our products are clunky and hard to use as a result. There are obvious holes in certain key functions of the company where no positions exist, so these functions go undone. The "transparency" and "collaboration" that is often alluded to by management, does not really exist below the surface at this company. Not much guidance or support for individuals, career or otherwise. Management doesn't pay much attention to the day to day stuff that is going on. Not much diversity in the staff, and no movement to increase diversity. Salaries and benefits below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and see what is going on on a day-to-day basis in the company. Ask employees for their feedback, and be more responsive to day to day stuff going on in the company. Provide more support and guidance for employees.

    Pros

    Product/Service that organizations truly need, a winning executive team, nice/intelligent co-workers, a company that allows company outings/etc, nice office space, lots more

    Cons

    sales can be cut throat and cold and you won't always receive the direction, guidance or feedback needed from sales managers to ensure that you'll be successful. also, there is little balance between work and free time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none. they are all great for the most part.
