    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Acquia full-time (More than a year)


    Unbelievable career advancement opportunities
    Internal promotions are the norm in Sales
    Most senior management (CRO, CEO) are incredibly in touch with the team, challenges and always willing to help
    Love our second line sales management team - some great changes there recently
    Colleagues across other departments are super smart and very collaborative
    Not a "frat house" atmosphere - like other Boston high fliers, which is great. This is a group of super smart, family oriented,driven people who care about each other


    Would be nice to see an expanded PaaS offering. It's something we know how to sell and market extremely effectively.

    Work life balance can be hard when you are climbing the next mountain although I will say the company is extremely flexible and understanding

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency. The lower levels like to know what's going on at the top. More communication from the top on our opportunities AND challenges are welcome as long as they don't come out of the blue as edicts.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Acquia (Boston, MA) in February 2017.


    The CEO and the senior team were very genuine and very open as i asked questions. They were honest about the issues that they perceived as needing attention (nothing significant) and they gave me a very good perspective about the company and the markets they serve.
