    I worked at Piston Cloud Computing part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is welcoming, friendly, and inclusive. The HR/Management does their best to make sure the employees' needs are accommodated, whether it be ergonomic desk set ups or specific lunch catering needs -- the employees' needs and preferences are #1.

    There is also a great sense of team spirit -- even with remote employees, and all of the distinct teams (Marketing, Sales, Engineering, and Management) work together, share ideas, share meals, share jokes and go on outings together -- the efforts to decrease silo-ing have been really effective.

    Leadership is transparent and friendly, staff is inclusive and witty, and Management is both accommodating and proactive -- really you can't ask for a better work environment.

    Cons

    Like all start-ups, depending on your title/department, there is some limitation in opportunities for upward movement. That being said, it's a small consideration, as the company is steadily growing and I witnessed several promotions in my short time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Decent product in a early adopter marketplace
    Downtown San Francisco office

    Cons

    First time CEO is full of himself and lacks focus. This is early adopter technology in a niche market, his contributions thus far are narrow, lack creativity, and are unrealistic to the current market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Board - think of CEO alternatives.
