    Pros

    Very interesting work. Excellent co-workers. Quality product in a strong and growing market. Management really cares about doing the right thing for customers and for employees.

    Cons

    Could do a bit better with technical onboarding. As is true of many small- to medium-size companies, some "day to day" technical knowledge isn't well documented. Not a big deal, but an area for improvement.

    I have been working at Couchbase full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employees are highly motivated by competition. Has a friendly yet hard working environment while trying to achieve the next big achievement and taking over as the #1 Database company in our space. Matt Cain and the rest of top management has been a great boss and the trickle down is apparent.

    Cons

    Have been moved and compensation for moving wasn't given. As this is a smaller company, the training for particular roles just hasn't been developed enough, so learning in the earlier stages of your career can be difficult if you aren't a go-getter.
