    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Drobo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment
    Most of the people were technical including top management
    Very clear on what is to be delivered

    Cons

    Benefits are not par with market, but not bad
    Need to think of maintenance when developing code, better to follow standards to write scripts and code.
    Workload is little high

    Advice to Management

    It may not be a good idea to work off hours all the time, provide more benefits if need to work long hours.
    Not anything else I can think of. Good going.
