Great place to work (but slowly losing its shine)

Pros

Great place to work, allows one to be as aggressive or easy going as one wants rewarding hard work and results.
Gives folks the opportunity to easily change groups and try new areas of the cloud stack.

Cons

Some of the older employees have a great sense of entitlement and huge egos and treat newer folks unfailrly. Some groups go nuts following the internal agile development methodology actually ending up being less effective.
Too many layers of management creeping in as the company grows leading to excessive bureaucracy and politics.

No opinion of CEO

    philanthropic with opportunities to volunteer

    there is no real management support due to fast pace
    tedious work in a Machiavellian environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Real managers aren't just people who do a good job, they are people who know how to communicate with and motivate diverse personalities. Give training to mangers and if they are managing people give them the title; my manager was dissatisfied with her role and was more focused on figuring out how to manage her own career than she was with managing me. She left her position, but not without some passive aggressive angst. I got mismanaged as a result. I have thirteen years of tech experience, mainly between two of the more successful tech companies in the valley, and have been in management before, so I know what I am talking about. The best companies aren't just interested in growth and domination, they are interested in effectively managing real people.

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible work environment and friendly coworkers. Furthermore, they are very flexible with work-from-home arrangements. And the products rock.

    Cons

    Almost too fast-paced for their own good. Due to complexity and rapid release schedule of new features, software is difficult to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time to focus on product usability and stability. The new products are great, but don't lose track of the old ones.
