    Pros

    Bronto is a growing company with the heart and soul of a startup. I think that's one of the things that makes the culture so unique and so warm. I've been in the marketing department at Bronto for 2 1/2 years and still think it's the best place to work. The marketers at Bronto are dynamos. They take care of one another while being totally focused on helping the company grow. That passion has allowed me to do some really fun things for my own career and for the company. The best thing is that everyone is able to bring ideas to the table and then help guide them to fruition.

    Cons

    There are still a few small growing pains associated with the Oracle acquisition - processes, red tape, etc. But the leadership are working to iron out the kinks when they find them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You've created a fun, challenging, quirky, supportive environment where people love to come to work. Great job!

    I have been working at Bronto Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Bronto through the acquisition by NetSuite and then by Oracle. Sure, things have changed with each, but day to day we still operate like we've always, with lots of independence to do our jobs the right way, with lots of opportunities to make a different and grow professionally. And we still have lots of fun every day, with team and company events, monthly luncheons, cross-departmental gatherings and so much more. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

    Cons

    As any company grows, maintaining the "old-school" culture can be tough. We struggle sometimes, but great people make for a great place to work no matter what. So I don't really have any cons to report.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people and all will remain great!

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

    Pros

    -Flexible, great location, and amazing co-workers
    -Always something going on
    -Opportunities to do unique things
    -Opportunities to participate in so much more than just the day to day
    -Oracle benefits with the Bronto spirit
    -I personally feel like I have an amazing manager who cares about my long term success
    - I also feel like management as a whole is good

    We have been acquired by NetSuite and then NeSuite was acquired by Oracle which means we have gone through a lot of transition in a short time. I feel like its been handled pretty well overall and while I know some folks struggle that is not the "good ole' days" when we were just a start-up, the days are still very good.

    Cons

    -With the acquisition, being under Oracle has had its challenges of learning new processes and procedures.
    - Vacation package used to be a bit better

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job navigating Bronto post Oracle.

    I have been working at Bronto Software full-time

    Pros

    Still loving it even after two acquisitions. Although our processes have had to change, at its heart, it's still the same Bronto we know and love. Am excited about the next mission, Vision 21 and where we are going. Great people and a great culture. Love coming to work every single day.

    Cons

    Challenges navigating the labyrinth of Oracle processes. Hard to be productive with my time when it's so hard to figure out exactly what needs to happen to get approvals through the systems. Definitely not intuitive software.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work at keeping the great Bronto culture and focused on what we know is best for the business.

    Pros

    Competitive pay now that Oracle is bankrolling them. Oracle benefits.

    Cons

    After only a couple of months in, I can say this is the worst job I've ever had. To begin with, the job description was misleading and advertised in such a way to attract talented people to menial positions. When I spoke in the interview about certain aspects of the job that interested me the most, I got smiles and nods instead of an honest "actually, you will not get to work with that technology." Inter-departmental communication is atrocious. There is no spirit of co-operation between teams, and most teams view each other combatively and disparage them constantly. People are not overly interested in helping you solve a problem if they can get by with ignoring it. As a result, a very common tactic is to send an email to the person you want help from, their manager, and your manager (if not more people)... before even asking someone directly for help. Employees consistently do as little work as possible to send an issue or project to the next person or team and not worry about it. No one takes ownership of anything. Big company bureaucracy paired with the undefined and loose processes of a former startup make this the worst of both worlds; not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Lead Bronto as a unified entity and make sure that teamwork is fostered across teams.

    I truly love working here. I have the best leadership here at Bronto than any company I've worked for in the past. My management truly cares about me and believes in what I do.

It's a great atmosphere to be in!

    There isn't a single con for me.
