I worked at Engine Yard as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Great environment; the company does a lot to ensure its employees are happy (lots of after hours events, etc).

Cons

Not much. Same as any mid-size company.

    I worked at Engine Yard

    Pros

    Engine Yard is a great place to work. Very passionate employees. Excellent product. Focus on quality. Very innovative. Interesting group of people.

    Cons

    Like any venture-backed company, it's a lifestyle commitment to work at Engine Yard. It will be a time commitment and the work of each person matters. Slackers need not apply.
