    I have been working at C3.ai full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    In a world where startup companies have fake & inflated valuations, C3.ai is building a real business, meaningful product, making customers successful and in the process changing the world If you are passionate about working hard & making a difference, this is the right place for you. In the next 2-5 years, AI is going to be so mainstream that if you are not involved in it, you'll fall behind. This is an... opportunity of a lifetime and I'm convinced that in the years to come C3 is going to be a leader in AI technologies for enterprises.

    Cons

    No company has achieved the once thought to be impossible mission without working extremely hard for it. People here work extremely hard to get things done. If this is something that is not in your DNA, then this is not the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    We need to find more like minded people who believe in the mission as much as we do, to make this the best place to work.

    Cons

    Company provides most typical benefits (401k with no match, insurance, free lunch, etc) and some could be better (match 401k, more options for insurance, etc) as the company grows.

    Pros

    Employees are super friendly, professional, and passionate about the work that they are personally doing, as well as the work that the company is doing. Amazing benefits for self-learning through Coursera courses or the UIUC Master in Computer Science degree. Company is growing fast and there's lots of exciting work to be a part of. Great culture of collaborating with others, working hard, and self-learning.

    Cons

    No 401(k) matching. Doesn't have a very flexible work-from-home policy (I don't mind but I know this is important to some)

    Outrageously smart people. You are challenged every day here to be better than you were yesterday. Solving big and meaningful problems. C3 also has all the benefits you might expect from a Bay Area software company. Catered breakfast and lunch, high quality company gym, great comp/benefits.

    No cons worth putting down.

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    If you like to be at the forefront of technology and how technology directly impacts business and lives, this is the place to work. You are always working on the most challenging problems that customers have never solved or struggle to solve. This encourages you to continue to self-develop be it starting in your career or a seasoned professional.

    Cons

    A lack of communication between teams and across regions that impacts day to day activities
