Technically challenging and internally very engineering/technology driven, but focused too much on selling and revenue.

Pros

Leading technology, talented engineers, customers are other software developers. Advancement track for engineers/individual contributors is comparable to advancement track for managers.

Cons

Relatively new top management is focused on IPO and outside of R&D and engineering less on technology. Sales driven goals put pressure on results more than process.

    Pros

    Everyone at Coverity is really smart, motivated and driven! The founders are still involved, Stanford guys, very, very smart. It's a fun, young atmosphere and they have great parties! Also, there really isn't much of a hierarchy here, the CEO will walk down the hall and say hi to everyone, which is great. The executive level visibility you're able to get here is huge, if you're doing well, people see and acknowledge that. Also-the pay is great!

    Cons

    Not much to say here, just be prepared to work hard!

    Pros

    Telecommuter support, good engineers, smart talented and willing employees. important product to have out in the world, needs to be more effective and affordable and fairly priced.

    Cons

    micro managers, absolutely no trust approach to running a business, the products aren't really as good as the company declares (believes) it to be, pricing scheme is cheesy and arbitrary, everything is discounted unnecessarily. Contracting model pure nightmarish - quite unbelievable for the modern age -poor customers who have to deal with this company. You asked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer people.
