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

Pros

Engineering has new leadership which is hopeful (if they last). Sales team is fun, young, talented with a strong leader. Product is sexier than the competition. Good location. High performers rewarded. Weaker links are weeded out. Free lunch on Fridays.

Cons

Lack of clear strategy and vision - can't trust what leadership says. Product improving, but nowhere near Enterprise ready. Technology infrastructure is poor leading to product failures for major customers, many who are unhappy. Internal systems a disaster. CEO talks a big game but rarely backs it up. A lot of talking behind people's backs instead of giving direct feedback.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When things go wrong, look at yourself rather than blaming others. Be honest with yourselves, your employees and your customers, and the investors. Invest in fixing what is broken and build a good foundation for growth. Figure out what makes Fuze truly different or you won't last.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, nice location convenient for commuting, most of the people are nice, catered lunches on Fridays, free coffee & espresso.

    Cons

    * Constant crisis mode
    * Having to work with engineers in Bulgaria.
    * Extremely buggy apps that were nearly impossible to maintain.
    * Sales & marketing driven, rather than engineering driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw away all of the code & rewrite it from scratch, not using engineers in Bulgaria.

    Pros

    lots of energy at this company. manager is great, smart and knows how to work deals, tough but fair. he let the weak ones go and is focused on making things better for everyone. the product is fun to sell and we win regularly over gotomeeting and webex. New engineering and marketing execs are awesome!

    Cons

    tight work area, glad we are moving soon. marketing tools are weak and need to get better. everything keeps going the way it's heading i'll change my 4 out of 5 stars to 5 out of 5

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont sweat the small stuff, we'll kill it no matter what. keep commitment to improve other departments
