    Great exposure to sales prospecting techniques. Lots of training and great culture.

    List building takes up most time although you really can't expect much more from a sales internship

    Doing a great job!

    Pros

    Amazing office space, empowered team - and I really mean team - great leadership and innovative products. Acquia is on the verge of the next phase and is a great place to be

    Cons

    Coming out of a period of rapid growth, there is catch up to do on products. No 401K match. The brand is not as well known as it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and keep the culture from going political. There are great people here, but get big without losing the DNA.

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

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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.

    Lots of travel. But if that doesn't bother you, its a con!

    Indeed, technical architects are required to travel frequently. It appears that you enjoy it, as I did when I was a technical consultant at the beginning of my career. I presume you meant "if that... More

    Pros

    I have been working at Acquia for 10 months now. It is the best place that I have ever worked and no they did not ask me to write that. hah. Great people, great culture and great work life balance. They really respect and care for their employees at all levels. I am very happy here.

    Cons

    Nothing is a con here for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing/ don't change the openness and respect for all level employees.

    I have been working at Acquia full-time

    Pros

    I have a background in working at start-ups in hopes of a solid exit strategy. In some instances it's ones out, in others it has not. I will say that Acquia is the first company I've joined (and on the later side) where I really feel like we are poised for exceptional things. I joined the team because I felt strongly about the leadership team in place and the work ethic behind the people executing against the plan. So far those things have held true.

    Cons

    I am not sure this is really a con or just sort of industry standard but there does seem to be the tendency to run towards shiny objects. I've seen this at all of my prior companies as well. It seems like the leadership team is fully aware of this behavior and they have made strides at ensuring that products and services that we release are going to fit the needs of our clients and that they are implementing them properly.

    Advice to Management

    I truly feel like the passion that the leadership team has permeates down to all employees within the organization. The leadership team is always looking for ways to improve and I appreciate that about an organization.

    Acquia Response

    Thank you for your post. It's ironic that the same passion to constantly improve also leads us occasionally at shiny objects. I do believe it is a general business thing as I was visiting with one... More
