    I worked at Avici Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working there. People were nice and very technical.

    Cons

    It's too bad the company dissolved suddenly.

    Pros

    Avici and Soapstone were amazing places to work. It was astonishing to see their audacity and their accomplishments. The people were smart, nice, and driven. The place was more than a bit chaotic, but that just added to the air of adventure. It must have been a grand place to work before they ran out of time.

    Cons

    I'm having a really hard time coming up with 20 words describing the downside of working there. They were just a little too ambitious and didn't expand their horizons to other market spaces in time. But, then, who knows?

    Advice to Management

    Soapstone, guys, you came *so* close. Even today, people are crying out for something like the soapstone product in datacenters.
