    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 Management

    Create an open pay structure.

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at GoGrid Cloud Hosting full-time (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 Management

    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).

    Pros

    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 Management

    Reduce tech debt.

    Pros

    Working at Gogrid gave me a lot of freedom to be creative, I earned well, and the people on the sales side were highly professional and friendly. I'd not worked with many other departments, but holiday parties were enjoyable. A great bunch of loyal characters there.

    Cons

    There was little reward for innovation and what reward there was often required thick skin. The infamous, "no good deed went unpunished."

    Advice to Management

    Reward extra effort with freedom and respect. Start shifting away from a pure startup mentality.

    Pros

    lots of freedom, awesome people, a great learning experience. I enjoy my job.

    Cons

    many situations are not addressed properly or managed properly. there are a few employees that do not have filters and mistreat other employees with no repercussion.

    Advice to Management

    reward your people, and hold the employees accountable for their work load.
