    Pros

    Great product. Really smart co-worker and unique products. Many of the performance engineers work remotely on projects.

    Cons

    High stress. short timelines. Gives new meaning to drinking from a fire hose and you are expected to come up to speed in a really really short amount of time. You either swim with bare with the sharks or end up as chum.

    Pros

    I came to SOASTA about a year ago and the opportunity for upward mobility is really great. In the past year the sales team has more than doubled. The management team is very heartfelt and always there when you need some help or advice (despite being stretched thin due to the rapid growth). The office culture is very team oriented. Sales is a tough industry, but we make it fun and energetic while still being results focused.

    Cons

    The complex product offering and competitive landscape may not be for everyone. New hire training is still transitioning into a formal program from a more loose, learn as you go methodology.

    Pros

    As a sales professional, you want a large addressable market, a disruptive product that solves the problems of that market, a fair compensation plan that rewards hard work and achievement and a management and engineering team that represents thought leadership and is focused on execution and customer satisfaction. SOASTA has all of that and more. Work-life balance is real, benefits are competitive. Great Castro St Mt View location. I love being here!

    Cons

    The office is cold. Or hot. Depends on the day. Seriously that's about it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing.

    Pros

    SOASTA's products are driving the revolution in next generation performance testing and management of mobile and web apps. The solutions are proven across hundreds of customers to increase revenue, drive down time to release new applications, and increase quality. And the apps provide a great user experience too!

    Cons

    This is a classic, fast-paced Silicon Valley startup. Come here ready to aggressively meet your goals with a minimum of corporate infrastructure, adapt to change and priorities rapidly, contribute wherever needed, and be a collaborator across the company to enable everyone's success.

    Pros

    I've worked in software sales for over 15 years, mostly with small companies that have gone public or been acquired. My 4.5 years at SOASTA were by far the most enjoyable of my career. The senior leadership team is second to none which is a direct reflection on the CEO and Executive Chairman. There is something special about working at a startup where the top people in the company place treating people well in front of the bottom line. Everything that happens at SOASTA is done with a purpose and done to perfection. The employees, especially the engineering team, put great personal pride into everything they do. If you are good enough and lucky enough to have the opportunity to work at SOASTA, take it.

    Cons

    While I truly have nothing negative to say, I would say that managing growth like SOASTA has been experienced can not be easy. Some under qualified people may have slipped through the cracks from time to time (especially in sales), however, there is no place to hide at SOASTA. If you under perform you will be noticed, for all the wrong reasons. If you consider that a negative, don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do!

    Pros

    The product actually works, its disruptive technology and the company is all about everyone succeeding as a team. Small company feel with big customer names and gaining market recognition.

    Cons

    None that I can think of - benefits seemed a bit high out of pocket but improved from last year to this year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what we are doing!

    Pros

    Fast passed atmosphere. Very rewarding if you are a technology professional especially in the performance engineering discipline. They very much appreciate and reward for good performance!! I am very happy here and have recommend two friends/colleagues, one has been hired and the second is very deep into the process!!

    Cons

    Can throw newbees into the thick of things quickly but that is not necessarily a bad thing as they need to be sure everyone can handle the work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going like we are.
