    Relatively drama-free. Friendly people. Lots of company social events and catered lunches on Friday.

    Cons

    Some accumulated tech debt can make developing new products slower than it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce tech debt.

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    GoGrid likes to innovate and create their own solutions with various opensource technologies. This gives you a wide breadth of options and the ability to see what the community is doing instead of being pinned down to vendor contracts or software license agreements (as a developer)

    Cons

    Sometimes getting a product or project to market comes at the sacrifice of a more complete solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe show how a product's spend (cost to develop) returns the company by sales and how much money we're making on that. Celebrate those successes and then continue to iterate on that feature (which is making money).

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time

    Pros

    GoGrid has a start-up feel but with some serious dreams to go big. People are friendly. Some of them are quite smart. Being a leader and innovator in the cloud is nice. Free drinks, good perks, free Friday lunch all nice.

    Cons

    Needs to reward its employees more. Start up feel is nice but need to work harder to retain smart talent with much more aggressive salaries. Becoming more corporate in procedures is taking away some of the fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to retain employees...pay very competitive salaries and you will retain employees and attract more and better talent!

    Pros

    GoGrid is part of the newly emerging CloudHosting space. A rather big part. If you want to start getting some experience in this industry - GoGrid is one of the companies to check out.

    Cons

    The pay isn't super competitive. The size of the company and pay structure is more like a start up. You don't have a clear pay structure or path to follow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an open pay structure.

    I worked at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can essentially get your industry knowledge of cloud services here but you wont get it from management . You have to learn from techs, support, and systems folks.

    Cons

    At the helm there is very little in catering to the market place.Unwilling to adapt with what market actually needs is killing growth. Passing off a half baked solution as full fledged and turnkey is what kills this place. The folks at the head of product, and marketing ( vp's and managers) are completely out of touch with the actual customer base and lack industry knowledge . This makes sales efforts trivial and damages good people that have a passion to succeed in this space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire VP's of Sales and marketing that know the space and pay them well. Stop hiring people in management that takes 2 to 3 years until you figure out they have no clue what they are doing. Build brand loyalty, it is not about the products or technology, but how you make it easier for customers do business with you.

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting

    Pros

    Location is ideal
    No micromanagement
    Flexibility to create or establish your own role

    Cons

    Over worked and underpaid
    Culture is changing too quickly and there's new employee older employee tensions
    Company direction is reactionary
    Company thinks its an 800 lbs gorilla and it's not

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look internally to support much needed infrastructures. You can't grow the business if you don't fix the problems with the internal systems.

    Pros

    Free lunch on Fridays
    Good medical, dental, eye care
    Relaxed atmosphere

    Cons

    They pay poorly and don't offer profit sharing
    Difficult product to promote in a very competitive landscape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, work on building a culture of success. The mood in general around GoGrid is collect a paycheck and go home.
