    I worked at Baynote full-time (More than a year)


    Location is ideal if you live in the South Bay. There was a time when the culture was really great. Core platform could be very competitive. Dario and Max who head the Engineering team are very solid and capable leaders. Some of the staff on PSO are really great and smart people.


    The management is literally sinking this ship. Every quarter the team gets smaller and smaller. They spin bad news better than Fox. Millions in lost revenue over the past few years. Major drama with key hires and tons of gossip and gamesmanship. You have to have a thick skin or incredible patience to endure here. In such a competitive job market it insane how little they pay, offer in benefits and poorly they manage their staff. Very much a blame environment. Never believe anything management promises you unless it is in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. People come to work at a startup understanding that there are risks. Be more forthcoming with all the nitty gritty details from finances to personnel moves. Trust that people will make the right decision to stay or leave regardless of the tone of the news. Be more nimble. It has always bothered me that Baynote is 50 people, but moves like IBM. Other startups run rings around us by removing unnecessary process and red tape. Drop the lease, the bureaucracy, and hyper security. Move to a shared space and work like new graduates wanting to change the world. Be people first. From some of the more frustrating hiring decisions that have been made, to managers that marginalize people because you're not a "morning person", acting like Oscar the Grouch, or micro managing into oblivion; all make for a terrible work environment. If you hired them, trust them, teach them and empower them to succeed.
