Pros

The company has solid VC backings with a great team of people across the organization. The environment is relaxed, yet everyone is focused on doing the right things to help the company grow.
This company is not one for those who like politics. It's for those who are willing to roll-up their sleeves and get the job done.

Cons

Since OpenDNS is a semi start-up, the business processes are unstructured.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to listen to employees and keep up the great momentum you're building. There is a solid opportunity here to build something great!

    Pros

    OpenDNS is a company that's truly innovating in a space that previously saw very little innovation. People here are very excited about the product and the opportunities ahead of us. The benefits are ample - work schedules are flexible and a healthy work/life balance is encouraged.

    Cons

    There really aren't any significant cons to working here. It's a start-up, which to some is seen as a downside, but OpenDNS ends up attracting top talent that wants to be involved in something great at an early stage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Capitalize on the opportunities ahead. Continue listening to employees and giving people what they want and need to be successful.

    Pros

    It's a startup with millions and millions of users. You get out of it what you put into it. The CEO is always open to talk to you and listen to feedback. Great coworkers and office environment. Also, it makes money so it's not going out of business. Very much NOT a Web-2.0 social networking or dating site.

    Cons

    It's not as well organized as it could be. Things are growing quickly, and they need to hire more people. Hard to hire some people since we aren't Twitter or Facebook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, provide more direction. There are a couple people who need to be placed in better roles. In general, some people need to be held more accountable.
