    Great working environment Smart colleagues to learn from Chance to be with one of the "great" companies before public offering Many opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    High pressure to produce may not suit everyone Utah location slightly off the beaten track, may not have many local alternatives for job change

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more visible at lower levels, sharing strategic business plans and inviting input. Accounting systems need improvement to streamline work.

    Pros

    Autonomy and lunches twice a week! Management, for the most part, hires competent people and then trusts them to do their jobs and do them well.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be trained.....be ready to hit the ground sprinting. I feel tremendous amounts of respect coming from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    All in all management does a great job.

    I have been working at Fusion-io full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very engineering focused, we are well taken care of and encouraged to work together, there are yearly engineering summits that are held so we can all meet up and share what we are working on.

    Cons

    The company is growing super fast, so it's hard to know how you are helping at first.

    Advice to Management

    None really, you could handle bringing in new people better and have more documentation, but that could be said for most companies, especially companies this young.

    Pros

    Great people, atmosphere and morale! The company is just exploding so it is a fun place to be. People are excited and they treat you VERY well.

    Cons

    They don't have a 401k plan. I haven't been here too long but I'm hoping that I will be able to move around but I'm not sure if that is a possibility

    Pros

    Perks are nice: Killer espresso machine. Soda fountain. Lunch twice a week. Mixers and team events. MacBooks, Yoga, bagels. The majority of the office crew enjoy socializing and collaborating to make it a better place.

    Cons

    There's still plenty to be done before taking over the entire datacenter..

    Advice to Management

    The energy and passion displayed by the senior executive team is uplifting. True professionals!

    Pros

    Tremendous people and product. Our hallways are filled with great leaders, and people who are excellent at what they do. The corporate offices are class A office space. The companies products are re-sold by IBM, DELL and HP. Big customers include Facebook and Apple. Steve Wozniak is an employee.

    Cons

    Turbulent stock price. Which sometimes actually is a benefit when it comes to our Employee Stock Purchase Program.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating and designing great products.

    Pros

    Working at this company is like working at a swanky website in the mid 90's. They have more money than they know what to do with, so they make work life awesome. Free lunch every day, monthly(ish) beer bashes, better than competitive salaries, high class facilities, and anything you ask for you get. The whole place buzzes with an air of success. The company was founded by a bunch of engineers, so if you are in r&d they treat you especially well.

    Cons

    Like working at a swanky website in the mid 90's, all of us that understand the market realize the days of plenty are numbered. For a while it will still be fun, but when flash becomes a commodity, or a new standard interface comes out that supports flash better than sata, the company is going to be hard pressed to compete.
