    I have been working at Acquia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, great product, great intent. Every company has it's challenges, but this is the best company for which I've worked. People genuinely care about the company, other employees, and the customer. People are very invested in customer success.

    Cons

    Trying to innovate while supporting a large and demanding customer base can be very challenging. This puts disproportionate pressure on R&D so solve problems and build new features.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time enabling the teams and focus less on reporting and justification.

    I worked at Acquia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of smart, fun, hard-working people. Good perks and nice office space in Boston. There was an opportunity to work on some interesting projects, and take ownership from time to time. Decent internal mobility if you were curious about a different department or wanted to learn a new skill set.

    Cons

    Serious favoritism, which sometimes resulted in the promotion of unqualified individuals, or an excess of praise being bestowed upon others. Massive lack of support and recognition (only on some teams). If you love working ridiculously hard and never getting so much as a "thank you," then this could be a great place for you. Very little support (again, only in some departments) for skill-building or personal development....

    Advice to Management

    Acquia was once a really fun place to work, but has lost so much of that core culture that once made it great. Put your people first, and make them happy, because happy people do amazing work, and amazing work is what will fuel your future. Being a slave to your products will only get you so far.

    Pros

    Dynamic work environment at HQ; Fun and challenging work - though more of it than the staff can handle; Really smart, driven teams with lots of support at the team level and very little political strife; A very cool brand with support for the Drupal community. The first two years here were amazing!

    Cons

    Extraordinarily high turnover. Struggling with creating the right product portfolio; Sales leadership is flawed - driving out the best, spending too much time blaming anyone but themselves for missed goals and bad morale; Can't figure out how to do business outside of Boston; The new CEO can't disguise his contempt for the employees, culture and history of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to recapture the roots of our company culture. You hire great people and then you beat them up. Find a way to focus on what's going well if you don't want to continue to drive the team out in droves. In theory, we just had one of the best financial years in company history and everyone is miserable.

    I worked at Acquia full-time

    Pros

    There are tiny vestiges of the old Acquia that was great.

    Cons

    Middle management has completely lost the best members of their teams. The turnover has absolutely devastated the ranks within support, services, engineering, and product. Can you believe the Drupal support team was never trained on Drupal 8? You bet Acquia’s customers do. Can you believe Acquia Cloud still doesn’t have broad support for Drupal 8? You bet Acquia’s customers do. Can you believe after 5 years Acquia Lift...

    Advice to Management

    Stop whitelabeling software and calling it your own. Stop reselling AWS VMs. This isn’t 2010.
