    I have been working at Palamida full-time

    Pros

    Great attention to work/life balance, tolerant towards working remotely/telecommuting. Small office lets you get things done very quickly (very easy to go to the person who knows the answer to your problem). Company is very encouraging of proactive employees who have their own independent ideas for how to improve things. Company is growing in a newly-hot space and business is good. Great location near Montgomery BART.

    Cons

    Personal growth can feel a little stunted due to the small size of the company. Can get hectic at times - you might be doing 20 things but only getting paid for one. Management feels sales-oriented and overpromises to potentials, engineers are too few and overloaded. Benefits so-so, no 401k matching and must use PTO for sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase frequency of performance reviews. Keep your employees motivated. Get more engineers. Be more inclusive by debriefing everyone once a month about what's going on with the company across departments.

    I worked at Palamida

    Pros

    There were some very talented engineers when I worked there. They liked to share knowledge and help each other. It has good atmosphere inside Engineering department.

    Cons

    Funding was tight. Software was not easy to sell - long sale cycle and not making much money. Office environment was not very nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job to have this company survive during the economy downturn. Learn your lessons from the past and keep moving forward.
