    I have been working at Piston Cloud Computing full-time

    Pros

    Smart people solving interesting problems in an amazing culture. Every day is challenging and exciting, and every employee has the opportunity to affect the direction of the company and the technology space as a whole.

    Cons

    Occasionally you have to go home and not be at work. Or BART strikes and you can't even get to work. Or the bourbon runs out (but there's a store around the corner).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! You've built something fantastic and should be proud.

    I worked at Piston Cloud Computing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent product in a early adopter marketplace
    Downtown San Francisco office

    Cons

    First time CEO is full of himself and lacks focus. This is early adopter technology in a niche market, his contributions thus far are narrow, lack creativity, and are unrealistic to the current market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Board - think of CEO alternatives.

    I have been working at Piston Cloud Computing full-time

    Pros

    Snacks! Lunch! Retreats! OpenStack! Parties! Smarties! NASA! Juggling! Fancy Fridays! Equipment! Competitive salary!

    Piston is committed to hiring the smartest, most excellent people to do their jobs and do those jobs like no one else is doing them. You will learn from your colleagues and always have the space to speak your mind, regardless of rank. You'll be surrounded by really cool people doing really cool things, and be actively making those really cool things happen in the world!

    Cons

    WageWorks cutting public-transit commuter benefits on the federal level by $100 *facepalm*

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the balance of +culture and +people with cool-headed poise and style, as always.
