Pros

Smartest people I've ever worked with. We have what it takes to get ahead and stay ahead in the industry: a great team, and solid products.

Cons

Make no mistake: Mocana is a startup. There is chaos and risk-taking, and it can get stressful at times.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent about financials to ease concerns about the short-term future of the company, so we can focus on the long-term.

    Pros

    Engineering staff is brilliant. Break room is always stocked full of good eats. Support staff is pleasant and easy to work with.

    Cons

    While there was a lot of communication from the top level, it never seemed to match with the facts. The Exec management seemed to be absent and disconnected from the day to day operations of the company. It is a start up but there isn't a start-up 'urgent' mentality which makes for a great place to work but not one that you expect to truly succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with current situations and forecasts. The board needs to reevaluate senior management and put in doer/managers versus visionaries.

    Pros

    Engineering team is smart and functional. Semi-agile development environment. Decent salary and benefits, free commute checks, telecommuting ok, nice to be in the security industry and work on interesting, challenging products.

    Cons

    No strategic plan, upper management is inexperienced and reactive, products change direction on a daily basis, lots of conflict with other departments, too many meetings. CEO sends email saying company is doing well then lays off a bunch of people.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, get along, learn how to manage your departments and your company.
