    It's very exciting to work at the leading edge of cross-platform app development and managment.

    I have been working at Sencha full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Ext JS, Sencha Touch, and Sencha Space engineering teams are all top-notch, and very easy to work with (as is the Executive team, due to the relatively flat hierarchy in place).

    Cons

    It can be hard to maintain focus on building visionary products while staying committed to legacy browser support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus obsessively on delighting our customers. Cut away anything that doesn't meet that objective.

    I worked at Sencha full-time

    Pros

    Worked with one good developer

    Cons

    Company has no direction after some important people left. Most developers had an attitude. Not much recognition after contributing much for a product. Trying to keep alive old framework with many issues and not much qa.

    Work/life balance can suffer at times. Feels directionless and undisciplined at times. Needs better marketing and brand recognition.

    I worked at Sencha

    Pros

    The ExtJS framework has a large community of users, primarily in the corporate environment.

    Cons

    The company is in desperate need of a CTO to buffer the CEO from the developers. Very poor support when working onsite at clients. Very poor travel expense compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a CTO to buffer employees from upper management; Provide per-diem based upon the client location. Higher pay for working at client's location.

    I have been working at Sencha full-time

    Pros

    It's a pretty easy job; pace moves slower so there's not as much pressure as most places. Some of the nicest people I have ever worked with have been here.

    Cons

    There is no direction with the company or products. They are happy to abandon products or the community to make Ted, VP of Sales, happy. Teams are pretty isolated from each other. The culture is becoming very corporate very quickly; but that's no surprise. The company just wants to be bought by Oracle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to achieve your potential as a company.
