I worked at Calera as a contractor (More than a year)
The company was engaging and interesting. A lot of really smart people worked there trying to solve some great challenging problems.
The technology they were trying to develop was far from profitability. Although it was well funded at the time, the future was bleak. We felt like we working on really important projects, but it was impossible to stay very optimistic
Advice to Management
It was easy to see the problem of running out of money eventually. It was a great place to work on any given day, but it was hard to see a long term future at the company. That made it difficult to stay focused long term.
