Current Employee - Software Engineer in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)

I have been working at Canonical full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Work with some of the best in their field, from the comfort of your home, on the most popular and innovative Linux distribution in the market today.

Cons

Must have the guts to swallow the backlash every time a new project is announced. The free software community has no mercy.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Canonical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, both based in offices and remote (work from home).
    Lots of opportunity to carve your own path in the company and make product suggestions and enhancements.
    Great technology and ideas on howto adapt it.
    Company meetings and developer meetings yearly face-to-face.
    Good office locations.

    Cons

    Not well organised and constantly changing. Lots of middle management with little added value.
    Teams are pushing Ubuntu to many different areas which ends up with little focus on each area.
    Company has grown rather large without necessarily making any more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut middle management and focus on the key product, let staff in on how the company is making money or not
