    I have been working at Densify full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Good environment amongst employees, terrible upper management. Stay away from marketing dept.

    Cons

    WARNING: Stay away from marketing

    Change up your upper management. There are more senior exec tittles at this company then in actual multi billion dollar companies.... That should tell you something right there

    Pros

    Great company, lots of autonomy, great work / life balance. The company does care about its employees. Compensation is in line with the industry.

    Cons

    Sales cycle is long but partly the nature of dealing with large enterprise companies. new SaaS based offering will help shorten sales cycle and expand market.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgmt should continue to reward and retain top performers while at the same time getting rid of non-performers
