    Pros

    Good culture, fun place to work, good people, all in all goodness. Utah is a little quirky and Seattle has a culture of its own

    Cons

    Part of a bigger company, a bit of a red-headed step child. Not really part of the core business but all in all not too bad

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Breakroom food is great. Compensation amounts are OK, considering the majority of the workforce is in UT.

    Cons

    A little bit of politics. The culture is slowly starting to form to a corporate culture (coming from a small start up).

    Advice to Management

    Please try to not lose the small start up feel. Corporate culture is nice for benefits but not regarding conformity.

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance, great people

    Cons

    No clear innovative vision by upper management and poor execution/work ethic by middle management made for a frustrating environment for top performing first-line managers and individual contributors. Most of our top talent left and performance reviews are a joke, so it basically creates a dead-sea effect on talent.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work longer than 3pm every day. You're pace setters--how do you expect to have a high-performing team when you're just looking at the clock? And innovate... you really really need to get relevant again. Winning a deal here and there will feel good this quarter, but it's a death sentence. Mozy will not survive a more innovative competitor who's positioned correctly. Grow or die. To accomplish this, start by letting go of all the middle management and start over. These are the things that made Mozy successful (hard work, brilliance, innovation, the 'hacker' culture) all of which feel lost with the current team.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, involved leadership, fully stocked break room. They have an xbox and a wii, ping pong, foosball, and more for breaks. Lots of company parties, external activities and groups (mountain hiking, road biking). Great mix of work and home life.

    Cons

    Becoming more corporate, less start-uppy. Sometimes the company has trouble with maintaining focus and direction without the "ooh, a shiny object, let's chase it" syndrome.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of company progress and goals. Put everyone's jobs in context of the greater vision.

    Pros

    Cool culture - they retained some of the nice perks from being a startup. Pay is decent, and if you love the outdoors the location is pretty great.

    Cons

    The company has gotten kicked around a bit post-acquisition. First stop at EMC and then a handoff to VMWare has been a tough transition. Definitely some growing pains as well.

    Advice to Management

    Value people. Promote from inside. Don't kill perks to get just a few extra points on the bottom line.

  10. For me, it was an all-around great college job

    Pros

    Great people, a fully-stocked break room, fun activities, laid-back atmosphere. The Pleasant Grove location is close to all different kinds of outdoor adventure.

    Cons

    I was a contractor on the Mozy team -- I didn't have access to a lot of the perks of being a Mozy employee.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Figure out what their needs are.

    Pros

    Amazing culture and a family atmosphere. People try to take care of those around them.

    Cons

    They can see what's going on with the rest of the market. They have a great roadmap. It's difficult for them to execute on future feature sets.

    Advice to Management

    Retain your talent across the board and provide upward mobility with a clear path of how to get promoted.
