    Pros

    Egnyte is a very busy place - there's always something to do, someplace to be, something to get done. Never boring, the opportunity to learn and grow is huge! It's a great team of people, all of whom love the company, the product and each other. Diverse culture.

    Cons

    About the only bad thing is that Egnyte is growing so quickly, there's not enough space in the office.

    Pros

    Management is extremely open - they share more details than I have seen at any company in the past. We are light on frills, but team is treated with respect and you can see the impact of your work easily. Hard working, but fair environment. Our teams ability to out execute the competition is remarkable given that we are not raising huge amounts of money, unlike some companies in this space.

    Cons

    Environment can be chaotic sometimes, and we do change release schedules/content sometime too fast. It can be unnerving sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though execution is key, we should plan release schedules with more thought and detail.
