    I have been working at EdgeCast Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow
    Fast growing industry working with the most recognizable clients in the world
    Latest in internet technology

    Cons

    Like others have said, the Execs work hard and expect similar efforts
    Lack of focus on positive reinforcement, personal rewards from Execs
    Company culture is friendly but low-morale exists in most depts due to over-management of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing, set goals and allow staff to meet them in their own style. Create some scalable processes/procedures that act as guidelines but don't stifle personal responsibility. Really promote a positive company culture by recognizing hard-working staff and company successes publicly and vocally!

    Pros

    Startup culture, everyone wears multiple hats and does what it takes to get the job done. The environment is very results driven. Not very hierarchical and relatively flat organization with a ton of visibility and opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    As with most fast growing companies, sometimes the workload can be a bit daunting but it's good to know you're making a huge difference and what you do counts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regularly communicate company updates with the staff. Even those at the entry level, because it is a startup, there are always rapid changes.
