    Pros

    Awesome place to work. Awesome people. Laid back office. Coffee, foosball, and Mad Libs, what else could you ask for from an employer??

    Cons

    Tough waiting for the company's big break. There is a great idea to be had, who is going to be to one who jumps on the grenade?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to keep people happy.

    I have been working at Funambol

    Pros

    Funambol is run with Good managment and work ethics. It is nice to see a company support Open Source Software.

    Cons

    The diversity of the company, split between Italy and the US, and various remote people, can make having a common sense of community difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing meaningful.

    Pros

    A somehow fast passed company.
    The Management cares for their employs.
    A company that is able to separate work from personal life.

    Cons

    The training is on-the-job, no additional training is given.
    The pay fair.
    Most of the company is composed by contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make the company a bit more stable, instability can cause bad performance.

    Funambol starts with "Fun"

    Pros

    Very committed people working together for common company success. The company has the technical and creative engineering team in Italy while the business and commercial team are located in the heart of Silicon Valley. This is the best mix to propose innovation in the white label private cloud storage field.

    Cons

    It is sometimes hard to find a good compromise for a good balance between work and life and this issue can generate stressful situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing to declare, I like the way the Management is driving the company

    I worked at Funambol

    Pros

    Overall the US teams was reasonably competent and the work environment pleasant. The salary and benefits were reasonable though not stellar.

    Cons

    Management just didn't have their act together. Kept changing direction and the Italian engineering team just couldn't deliver anything solid in a timely fashion. When the new CEO came in, he missed the boat in terms of making changes that could really help.
