Pros

I worked with some great people at Zend and worked on some very interesting projects. They really do have a core of good people distributed throughout the company.

Cons

Unfortunately, almost all of the interesting people I worked with were not in upper management. There was a ceiling, above which you had to be hired in and you have to be known by one of the VC companies that control the board. This means that there is rarely an infusion of new ideas into the C/VP level, it's just more of the same that you see at every start up.

Advice to Management

Delegate, decide what you want to do, spend more time developing products people want instead of letting marketing decide what products need to be released. Also, understand that no matter what your deadline is, the programmers there have a right to a life. You don't have the right to demand more than 40 hours from any employee, regardless of how important the project is to the company's well being.

    Pros

    Nice place to grow up technically. Good people to work with. Great possibility to work tightly with and within Open Source communities.

    Cons

    The downsides are insignificant to specify them here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the software quality and stability, instead of hurrying up with developing new features. The software development is Twitter-driven.
