Pros

Friendly people, zero tolerance for jerks, great benefits, stock options, and opportunities for advancement if you are willing to move to the Boston area.

Cons

I was not able to work for the company long enough in order to advance up the corporate ladder or take advantage of stock options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the environment of a close knit community and never sacrifice it for profits or material gain as Carbonite moves into the realm of publically traded companies.

  2.  

    Outstanding leadership at the top, focus on buyout/IPO at the cost of employee satisfaction and career advancement

    Pros

    Sharp overall strategic vision and execution, their marketing machine is well optimized, but little opportunity for individual contributors to grow and develop a career path. I'm confident in the company's exit prospects.

    Cons

    A lot of fumbling by inexperienced VP's; some failed experimental business development strategies and shoestring budgets for office space, salaries, top talent. With stiff competition and various other market factors in play, the technology will likely become obsolete fairly quickly, so the company's window for rapid customer acquisition is probably closing already.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None; they are racing toward an exit, so any employee that owns shares will probably do well. If the exit were de-prioritized, then retention, clearer career paths, and corporate culture should become a focus.
