I worked at OpenDNS full-time (less than an year)

Pros

This company is full of the usual perks: free food a few times per week, surprise treats delivered every so often and monthly happy hour gatherings. If you're straight out of college looking for a fun full time gig, than I'm going to say the roles and pay may work well for you.

Cons

This is a startup that has people that have worked up the ranks to get to their position. No experience, not really qualified, just calling the shots on small picture type stuff. At 100 plus people this was quite scary for me. Everyone looks at the upcoming launch projects and not enough at the problems that need to be fixed before the upcoming products are released. There just wasn't enough structure, processes, leadership strength or opportunities in place for me to be happy working for this company.

    Pros

    We have great perks overall including awesome food. You are working with highly talented people. Small enough to meet and get a chance to pick the brains of colleagues. Open communication and tools to facilitate that communication. Numerous events for being social, skill development, and personal release. Overall a great environment to for career and personal growth.

    Cons

    No real challenges. I wish we were served lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but this may be a possibility in the future as we grow.

    Pros

    Coming into work provides new challenges and new opportunities everyday. The sense of community allows you to celebrate your wins and learn from your losses. Everyone works together to achieve a common goal. Not to mention the office space is super awesome with comfortable couches and communal work areas. A fridge stocked with awesome food, snacks and drinks doesn't hurt either!

    Cons

    The kitchen has too much good food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More fitness groups and classes to encourage people to get up away from their desks and get moving.
