    I worked at C3 IoT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + Tom Siebel is a legendary operator. He's the main reason I joined. He's a charismatic leader; as sharp as they come.

    + Great Executive Team - Ed Abbo, Houman Behzadi, Jessica Reiter, Julien Groues - the best leaders I've ever worked with. There's solid team effort to execute on the vision.

    + Huge Opportunity - having solved some of the largest deployed IIoT problems in Energy (Full Spectrum Smart Grid Analytics) everything else seems like child's play. The market is theirs for the taking.

    + Obsessive focus on Customer Success - you get to build quality products that move the needle. The solutions you work on save companies hundreds of millions of dollars.

    + World-class talent - incredible ML and AI talent. Some of the brightest minds in these fields work at C3. Louis and Henrik are some of the most solid people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    - There's a clear separation between what happens at work and what happens outside of work.

    I have been working at C3 IoT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Folks are friendly, and you are constantly surrounded by smart and capable individuals. There is a snowball effect in that everyone makes you feel part of the overall team and in turn increases self-motivation to do better. I would give C3 5 stars, however I don't feel I've been here long enough to warrant that rating (minimum 1 year IMO), but so far I've been impressed.

    Cons

    Noone works from home. This may not necessarily be a con, but it does make you a part of the bay area traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep attracting good candidates. Overall I'm impressed with all the folks I've met so far, and have yet to figuratively roll my eyes on anyone.

    I have been working at C3 IoT full-time

    Pros

    There are many reasons to work at C3 IoT but here are the three best reasons. First, the people are incredibly passionate, highly technical, and extraordinarily sophisticated, making working with them fun and challenging at the same time...you work with the best to become the best. Second, the C3 IoT technology is amazing it's a hybrid of big data, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and IoT. These vectors are a hot top and are affecting every industry on the planet. Third, C3 IoT is in a great space and working there will allow you the ability to have an impact by solving problems that have never been solved before at a scale never seen before. This is the most exhilarating aspect of the organization!

    Cons

    The organization is fairly technical and the on boarding takes time to get comfortable to learn the technical content and get over the significant learning curve...but it is worth it!

    Advice to Management

    The management has been working hard to streamline the on boarding process. Artificial Intelligence is not easy and it requires significant effort to understand and apply. As the company continues to grow more emphasis will be needed to simplify the on boarding process.

    I have been working at C3 IoT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    C3 IoT has the most genuine, intelligent, easy going, collaborative, supportive, and talented people that I have the pleasure of working with. C3 IoT is going to have a significant impact on our society and paving the way for the future of the internet and how our world will function off it. C3 IoT is in unbelievably good hands with the track record of our CEO along the with each employee that he has taken the time to interview before walking through these doors daily. There is a major support system here for career, and personal growth. The energy and culture of the workplace is reflective of the people who are here who have been evidently carefully hand selected - not just based off top tier talent, but quality, capable people; things that can't be taught. C3 IoT is a melting pot of talent incorporating people from different backgrounds from all over the globe. The benefits and compensation are highly competitive. It is down right fun and inspiring to come here everyday, knowing you are having an impact on our future no matter what your title is.

    Cons

    I truly cannot think of one con. I am thankful every day for the opportunity to work at C3 IoT, and I know I speak for others as well.

    Advice to Management

    None. All the managers are understanding, supportive, and here to not only teach you, but learn from you as well.

    Pros

    Great perks...free breakfast, lunch, and gym membership. The opportunity to work with some of the brightest people in the world. We are solving real world problems in weeks that much bigger companies haven't been able to solve in years. The company is in a rapid growth mode which makes for massive career growth.

    Cons

    The expectations are very high so you need to bring your "A" game if you want to succeed here.
