    Great engineers, clueless management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsStrongest Pro is that Nimbula is currently out of business. Swallowed by Oracle for a pittance.

    ConsNot much in the way of direction. Sales are critical for a startup. Nimbula had none.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Burning through cash, sinking fast, high employee turnover rate

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsLax engineering culture
    Free lunches
    Located off Castro, net to VTA and Caltrain

    ConsCompany running out of Series B funding
    Non-existent technical leadership
    Revolving door, employee turnover rate is extremely high
    Codebase is a horrible mess
    Non-existent sales
    Competitors have already won the market, the door into private enterprise cloud computing budgets has slammed shut

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive up and shut down the company

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales-oriented startup

    Developer (Former Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsSingle person could make a big difference, perfect to make a showcase of your skills. Flexible on day schedule. Serving lunch and sometimes dinner.

    ConsScrum-based development schedule. Expect overtime up to 60 hours a week. No career possibility.
    Technology selections are odd, making developer's job uncomfortable on many sides. There is no architect so expect to live with immature decisions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
