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

    Pros

    I have recently started working at C3 IoT. Even from the interview process I could say that the group I was going to join included some of the brightest people I have met during my career (and I have been around). The process was extremely smooth and engaging. Starting with some entry interview tasks and questions, I had interviews with several members of the team that work within different projects in different areas. During this process it was clear that I was being evaluated not only based on my knowledge in specific areas, but also based on my ability to learn and grasp new concepts that could potentially be useful for the company now or in a future stage.

    Now that I have started at C3 IoT I can see the logic behind the interview process as the company is involved in different areas and constantly increasing its scope. Even though I have been working at the company for a short period of time I have been extremely impressed by the level of efficiency and the pace of the progress of the company. So far not a single dull or boring moment at work! It is clear that there are many opportunities to grow at C3 IoT which makes me super excited!

    Other pros:
    - Very caring and supportive HR team, throughout the pre-onboarding and onboarding process.

    Cons

    - Expect a slightly steep learning curve at the beginning so come prepared! (I personally like it as you receive great support from your colleagues)
    - Hard work, constantly challenged and required to learn new things (I wouldn't say it is a con, actually one of the reasons I joined the company. Though again be prepared! )

    I have been working at C3 IoT full-time

    Pros

    - Learn a lot
    - Solve challenging problems with large impact

    Cons

    - Schedule not very flexible, no unlimited PTO (though can take more unpaid time off if needed)

    Advice to Management

    Even while we scale rapidly with immediate customer needs, remember to encourage creative thinking and for people to keep devoting 20% energy to risky, uncertain projects

    Lots of interesting and high impact projects going on. The company is helping corporations solving challenging problems with advanced technology.
    Very beautiful office. Great view of the bay.
