A good place to grow my career initially, but frustrated by product quality.

Pros

There was potential to grow your career and stand out quickly as an achiever if you put the effort in. Recognition for hard work.

Cons

Disappointed by "commercial open source" and legacy PHP frameworks. The business opportunity is moderate and staff is required to work hard for small margins and high customer turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on product quality, development methodologies, and customer experience. It is important to make open source a verb rather than a noun.

    Pros

    Some great, intelligent and fun people to work with at Sugar. Quarterly company meetings are informative. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Company has shifted from a collaborative, team environment to a company with lots of politics and self-centered people, most in management positions. CEO has his favorites, especially the people he has brought in. No long term plan for the company, or at least one that has been communicated to the employees. Lots of start-stop initiatives. The sharing of information varies from department to department as does the competency levels of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what is best for the company, not just your specific area. Treat employees with respect and value the contributions they are making to the organization. Communicate a long term plan.

    Pros

    Very fast growing company. Great opportunities at this moment for personal and career advancements. Collaborative work culture. High pedigree CEO and low profile who is well respected both internally as well as externally.

    Cons

    Management inconsistencies between different departments. Fast growth comes with challenges. Corporate HQ is a bit dated and very crowed (that does have its benefits as well). Company could benefit from better planning.
