Great Place to learn. Stagnant company growth lacking ingenuity in market place .

Pros

You can essentially get your industry knowledge of cloud services here but you wont get it from management . You have to learn from techs, support, and systems folks.

Cons

At the helm there is very little in catering to the market place.Unwilling to adapt with what market actually needs is killing growth. Passing off a half baked solution as full fledged and turnkey is what kills this place. The folks at the head of product, and marketing ( vp's and managers) are completely out of touch with the actual customer base and lack industry knowledge . This makes sales efforts trivial and damages good people that have a passion to succeed in this space.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire VP's of Sales and marketing that know the space and pay them well. Stop hiring people in management that takes 2 to 3 years until you figure out they have no clue what they are doing. Build brand loyalty, it is not about the products or technology, but how you make it easier for customers do business with you.

    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.

    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!
