    Pros

    Densify is an up and coming Tech company. Start up feel and momentum with strong roots, and product. The company is going through its 'growing up' phase, where by its positing itself for huge growth - hiring the right people, putting the right processes in place to position itself for growth. Super exciting to be part of this organization. CEO is incredibly passionate and engaging, leading the charge. I am thrilled...

    Cons

    Quick moving, constantly changing - doing 3 years of work in 1. That can be challenging for some.

    Advice to Management

    Continue speaking to employees for input, not just the executives. Continue external hiring especially at the executive level, keep it fresh. Overall keep up the great work

    Pros

    Terrific, approachable, engaged executive team. CEO is a world-class leader who cares deeply about his team. Best-in-class, significantly-differentiated product. Engineering team evolves the service to keep up with the bleeding edge of cloud—prior to my arrival they were able to make the jump from software to SaaS in a matter of a few months. Since I joined, I've watched them make leaps where most dev teams take baby...

    Cons

    GTM strategy has evolved significantly since I joined Densify, although in a positive direction. It can be hard for some personality types to roll with the changes and fast pace at a place like Densify, but most of the team is excited about the forward motion. Exec team is so close-knit that they could actually benefit from spending more time apart with their constituents. New office requires slightly longer commute...

    Pros

    very casual open-office software development enviroment,, New employee benefits all the time like perkopolis and a fitness membership. With a rumored rrsp coming in the future. Moving offices to a new building in downtown markham comes with many new benefits, from a gym in the same building to incredibly easy access to the 407 if needed.

    Cons

    Large enviromental differences between the development side and the sales/account management side. Small teams, with not many levels of growth

    I worked at Densify full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Nice location in the suburbs, easy access to major highway, lots of stores and restaurants. I met great people here at the Engineering level (QAs, DEVs) and PMs. These are bright and personable individuals and I enjoyed working with them. I loved my own work and the product that I helped to build. These are the reasons I stayed there for so long.

    Cons

    - "No Work from Home" policy. - Double standards. Some people come to the office at 10:30am daily and leave at 5pm and that passes OK. Others may get fired for leaving 30 minutes early on Friday, after end of the sprint. - Two classes of employees: favourites and outcasts. - Morbid obsession with so-called "process" (aka Agile or whatever you call it). The "process" is above the product. Product is not important....

    Advice to Management

    I gave plenty of advice in the "Cons" section. Here is the last one: open your narrow mind to the nature of Software Design and Engineering work or any other type of highly-creative work that takes a lot of skill, art and imagination (think of writers, musicians, composers, artists, etc). You cannot tell creative people to never work from home or come at 9:00am and not leave before 5:30pm (Also consider this: many...

    I have been working at Densify full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Great product market fit. We are going in the right direction (Public Cloud Optimization) and it's an untapped market with unlimited opportunities. - Team are growing, but at the same time we have a great culture. - Amazing executive team. - This is not a downtown SaaS frat house start-up. This is the BIG LEAGUE. Low employee turnover and people here know that this is the place to grow your career.

    Cons

    - Explosive growth means chaos at times. This is not necessary a "con", because when there is chaos, there is opportunity for someone in this company to establish new process, solve the problem, and prove themselves.

    Advice to Management

    - Ensure this company has the same spirit and passion when we go from 200 to 500 people. - Hire top tier executives that has experience to take us to the next level.
