    I worked at Stoke Inc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The technology was up to date more than six years ago. The engineering at the time was innovative. Not anymore...

    Cons

    Horrible, horrible management. The product management dept. is confused, incapable to define the next product.
    Too much sales BS at the upper management level, not enough engineering or proper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company quickly, otherwise...
