    Pros

    Tight release, a lot of chance to learn new tech. All open source and easy to grow up your knowledge domain

    Cons

    Sometime you don't have enough time to think about the whole architecture and also since it is tight release, you can't make any very big changes in each release.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the way in our company, we all treat each other like good friend. We discuss the question and solve the problem together

    I have been working at Jasper full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Bleeding edge technology - m2m, IoT
    - Company tries very hard to hire only the best/brightest - the hiring cycle and amount of interview is quite long, but most of the company is staffed by mostly brilliant people - experts in their field - very bright and hard-working.
    - Tier-1 operators contracts signed world-wide - potential is very high for growing/business development
    - Largely Untapped m2m/IoT market - still in its infancy
    - Super-fast/aggressive growth
    - Privately funded - top-named VCs showing their confidence in the company by continuing funding
    - Executive management is on the right track - trying to recruit senior experienced middle-managers to help with scaling and adopting good industry practices
    - Company has aggressive far-reaching goals (world-domination!) - Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia - has sales reps world-wide.
    - Company is clearly an industry leader and is trying to capitalize on first-market entry role
    - Standard set of benefit (medical/dental/vision), pays for gym membership

    Cons

    - This company started small and it needs to grow up, mature and scale very fast - otherwise it will implode.
    - Has all the symptoms of small company - needs to scale it's organization, processes, communication, etc. - it shows.
    - There's not enough resources to attend to all of the customer needs - across-the-board prioritization is lacking, which is forcing folks to work extra-hard consistently, long hours, weekends - its very easy to get burned out.
    - competition from very large 800lb gorillas in the vendor space (Cisco, Ericsson)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritization of company-wide initiatives needs to be installed - otherwise folks will continue to get burned out, deals lost, etc. Some kind of vertical to review/prioritize the overall portfolio across-the-board.
