    Pros

    Company Product: #1 in the market (as ranked by any metric) analysts, customers, adoption levels, etc.. the company is well funded, well managed, and well positioned.
    Climate: wonderful offices in Palo Alto, 100 places to eat
    Culture: the smartest, friendliest people I've ever worked with my career
    Jive uses it's own product
    Compensation:

    Cons

    It can consume your life. There is always something more to do. Can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create (or acquire) better time/project management tools/processes.
    Make meetings 30 mins (not 60)
    Get in the press more... and do a better job telling how crappy everyone else is compared to Jive!
    Hire 'Success Managers' people who do nothing but enjoy helping customers succeed post sale.
    Sales reps cannot do this.. and go back out to hunt.

    Pros

    Jive Software is a company where the product being sold is also the philosophy being preached. This is a open company where everyone has a say.

    Cons

    I have heard that the pay isn't as good as some, but options make up for some of that. It's been a startup, and is entering it's teenage phase. There have been some changes that appear a bit corporate considering the anti-establishment types who keep this place afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jive just went public. Don't go a changin'! Clearly there needs to be an amount of caste style knowledge transfer for legal reasons, but please keep up the way that Jive breaks through departmental and hierarchical silos.
