    I worked at WSO2 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great place for a software intern from Sri Lanka. Gives global exposure. I was able to work on a W3C working group on giving implementation recommendations to a web recommendations at the time.

    Cons

    No real cons. Have to assume lot of autonomy, which can be either good or bad depending on your experience and your personal preference.

    I worked at WSO2 full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work and learn in an open source environment
    Working with latest technologies
    Very flexible work hours

    Cons

    Mediocre middle management in multiple teams.
    Growth depends on the teams.
    Company politics and nepotism.
    Very flexible work hours means, you should be willing to work 24*7 when the need arises.
    Some teams have a better culture, where the others do not. The best is showcased during the hiring.
    Company is slowly moving towards a closed-culture from its original openness and pure open source.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attention towards middle management and product team leads.
