Current Employee - Director of Client Engineering in Redwood City, CA
Current Employee - Director of Client Engineering in Redwood City, CA

I have been working at iPass full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Ability to make a difference in the organization
Flatness of the organization - nobody is that far from the top
Willingness of executive staff to learn the business and sit in the trenches with you
Opportunities to excel/grow if you can prove yourself
Startup culture but with blue chip customer base
Working with co-workers with great minds and great passion
Challenging but interesting product line
Encountering users of the company's service/software and hearing how much they love it and use it Lack of big company red tape and procedures - but not lacking the basic processes and procedures that make some startups chaotic.

Cons

Changes in technology have led to some marketing challenges at times in this line of business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't stop believing in the direction we are going- stay the course - things always take longer in this line of business than it seems like they should - but we will get there.

    Pros

    iPass is in an interesting space, and there are a number of huge initiatives going on in the Company - new products, new marketplaces to pursue, and new IT systems - if you are interested in career growth there is no shortage of projects to get involved in - my experience with the executive team, particularly Evan, is they are very approachable and candid

    Cons

    Not the place to be if you are a 9 to 5er - offices in Asia and UK mean flexibility in hours is the norm, not the exception

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've seen management step up frequency and quality of information updates to the employees over the last few years, but encourage even more - the employees who are here believe in the story, equip them to help complete it!
