    Pros

    A great team of skilled and experienced Cloud engineers and technologists awaits. Due to the wide variety of customers and partners, acquiring new skills and knowledge is the way of life at Mirantis. The company is still small enough that you can see you really are making an impact and that you can be noticed by management. The team spirit and atmosphere are great.

    Cons

    The language barrier can be challenging at times, also meetings with other offices in the company often happen very early/late. This is mitigated by a lot of helpful colleagues, though. Pressure can be high at times.

    Pros

    * Solid vision, product focus (Be the premier solution for organizations seeking OpenStack expertise, guidance and support)

    * Clear leadership toward that focus (Appropriate funding, staffing, sales and R&D to support the vision)

    * Exceptional HR support (Avaialble, thoughtful and AGILE HR)

    * Actively setting an appropriate corporate culture (Really thinking about hte things that make an employee want to work here; while they are small and can't provide Facebook and Google Cafeterias: they do provide snacks, food, lunches, events that for their relative size are great. They are very considerate of the diversity of families and individuals and provide flexible work options)

    * Allow for your desired workstation of choice - you spec it.

    Overall - its a very good company that recognizes what it takes to set themselves aside in SV and accomodate quality talent.

    Their only barrier to growth is the spped at which they can attract quality talent.

    The barriers to entry on massively scaled private and public cloud infra is almost eliminated with the use of Mirantis technology and services. There are so many that could benefit from deploying their own "AWS" level-quality infrastructure with a massive support base in such a short period.

    If you see dev-ops and IT-ops as commoditizing over the next few years, where a small, highly effective team can build massively scalable infrastructure extraordinarliy quickly so long as they are backed by world-class guidance and support -- then you can see the value Mirantis provides.

    Some if the projects in the pipeline, should they be awarded and successful will be major milestones on the open source cloud history timeline.

    Come be a part of this.

    Cons

    As an employee commuting from the East bay who despises driving, the only downside to Mirantis thus far is that public transit via caltrain is difficult.

    There is competition for the professional services that Mirantis offers - but no other competitor provides a tool as useful as Fuel.

    Companies like Facebook and Google will draw talent toward their closed, proprietary platforms. If you REALLY support the idea of OpenCompute then you should get some experience deplying OpenStack via Mirantis as you would not suffer from the myopic view of how a behemoth focuses on themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide incentive to take public transit to the office. Taking Bart/Caltrain costs upwards of $400/month to come to the office daily.
