    I worked at Zimbra full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Humble management, cooperative and helpful co-workers, no turf wars, smart people. Everyone is doing their best and no one is pushing employees over the limits (well, over startup limits)

    Cons

    It is a startup, so be prepared to pull your weight, occasionally work on weekends and long hours. If you are not getting your job done well, you'll get fired quickly.
