I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time for more than a year

Pros

Free lunch on Friday. Nice benefits. Good place to get your foot in the door into an IaaS provider.

Cons

There isn't a realistic vision how to grow sales. Management is clueless. Lost the start up culture to macho sales environment that doesn't mix well with tech team.

Lots of turn over.

The CEO is a tech guy, not a sales guy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to veteran employees. If you ask opinions don't disregard them.

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time

    Pros

    GoGrid has a start-up feel but with some serious dreams to go big. People are friendly. Some of them are quite smart. Being a leader and innovator in the cloud is nice. Free drinks, good perks, free Friday lunch all nice.

    Cons

    Needs to reward its employees more. Start up feel is nice but need to work harder to retain smart talent with much more aggressive salaries. Becoming more corporate in procedures is taking away some of the fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to retain employees...pay very competitive salaries and you will retain employees and attract more and better talent!

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting

    Pros

    Location is ideal
    No micromanagement
    Flexibility to create or establish your own role

    Cons

    Over worked and underpaid
    Culture is changing too quickly and there's new employee older employee tensions
    Company direction is reactionary
    Company thinks its an 800 lbs gorilla and it's not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look internally to support much needed infrastructures. You can't grow the business if you don't fix the problems with the internal systems.
