    Good People - Leadership Got Lost

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated people that focused on helping each other
    Cool Technology that served customers well
    Started to focus on Career Paths

    Cons

    Leadership Lost Focus and went into a downward spiral. Layoffs have followed and the company is in survival mode.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent about your plans - focus more on how decisions will impact staff. The technology and services are outstanding, but without significant additional investment, the customer base will continue to shrink.

    Pros

    Terrific Technology with bright, motivated people who work well as teams. Location is wonderful and Friday lunches were terrific.

    There was a good focus on keeping customers happy and helping them fully utilize GoGrid product and services.

    Benefits were awesome and the 401K matching was the best I've ever had

    Cons

    Senior Leadership was all over the map - and it bit them big time. Deciding the fate of the company and walking away from so many opportunities created a number of layoffs this year.

    Also caused an exodus of long time employees who didn't see a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide and act on final disposition of the company. Shareholders and employees need to see this happen soon

    Pros

    If you looking to learn new skills this is the place. Also provides free lunches on Fridays, $10 gym membership and decent medical benefits.

    Cons

    pay is not as competitive within its industry. Employee morals are down as management has changed a lot.

    I worked at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, exposure to lots of technology, great office location.

    Cons

    The CEO has likely burned every bridge he has ever had, and seems to be ready to stab you in the back to make an extra cent at a moments notice. More than half the staff was laid off and you get the sense that he probably enjoyed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hand over the reigns to someone who knows how to run a business.

    Cons

    The arrogant CEO destroyed this company as he would not let folks that are trained to lead do their job. This company started going down when owner/CEO fired the CEO and his former friend. It's just a matter of time but this company isn't going nowhere and the pay is not good at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a career CEO, let developers develop finished products and pay your employees like they deserve to be paid. Stop playing with employees' minds -- be honest with them.

    Pros

    Great engineering staff tackles challenging projects. You can own major parts of a cloud IaaS company and build them the way you think they should be.

    Cons

    Management is oblivious. Top brass chooses initiatives that the market won't care about, then engineers are driven like rented mules until they leave for higher pay and better work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have talented employees. Give them a little rein to built exceptional products for you, and forbid middle management from over-planning them into despair.
