Fun atmosphere, but disorganized management leads to stressful work days.

I worked at Datto full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The employees are fun to be around, the atmosphere is youthful and has a lot of energy. Lots of new tech coming in every day to keep the workspace up to date, and technologically advancing. Laid back environment - but only when management is in a good mood.

Cons

A lot of people there didn't seem qualified for their level of leadership, which led to disorganized goals, slow responses, and priorities changing almost weekly in order to keep up the appearance that things are improving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you continue to promote everyone up the chain just because they did okay at a low level position, you're going to suddenly have a lot of management that is beyond their scope of accomplishment and were better suited at their previous role. Sometimes this works out, but there are a lot of people who are only successful in leading because their departments/teams are properly staffed, not because they actually have anything to contribute.

    A little too chaotic for my tastes

    I worked at Datto full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A few very friendly people, nice area, Some great benefits and growing. "start-up" feel, free coffee/drinks. Free catered lunch on Fridays. Focused goals (Datto revolves around the development/sale of in-house products so the company is very focused on that).

    Cons

    housing in the area is insane. no free snacks (nitpicking). The "start-up" feel is a double edged sword; work days are very unstructured and chaotic, often forcing developers to be on 24/7 call. Some of the upper management come off a little... strong in their personalities. Drab offices, in dis-repair in some areas and just barren in others. Takes on a lot of fresh out of college interns so code base is mediocre on the best days, horrifying on the worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on making your employees happy and less fear-mongering.
