Pros

Free lunch on Friday's, frequent company fun activities. Good benefits, $10 Crunch fitness, good medical plans, 401K match. Location is good.

Cons

The CEO gets an idea for a product and wants it released to our customers before it is barely a V1 beta, thus our great new products that have potential never get fully bug tested or vetted. Then you have your best customers using those products and when they fail, you spend your time trying to save the customer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the developers develop a fully functioning product before releasing it, don't cut corners. Someone stand up to the CEO.

    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.
