    I worked at EdgeCast Networks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Super smart, honest, genuine, care about their team and customers. I would send them to anyone.

    Cons

    None really to think of. Management, team, leadership, direction of company, inter-department interaction is a positive.

    Advice to Management

    You guys did it. Congrats. Keep doing what you're doing. Continue to stay ahead of the competition and keep growing within.

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

    Pros

    Great collaborative environment. Cool Location very convenient to the west side. Tons of ambitious and smart people. Very relaxed environment to work in.

    Cons

    Management lacks direction. Constant changes with mergers and acquisitions has decreased moral recently. Relatively small organization. There isn't a lot of room for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be wary of changes and how it affects your employees. Be considerate of employees time and work/life balance with our rapid often changing environment, fighting fires can get tiresome.

    Pros

    - Excellent potential for growth
    - Talented peers
    - Aggressive compensation
    - Mid-level leadership is excellent
    - Beer

    Cons

    - Office location in Playa Vista means either a painful commute or paying a LOT of money to rent locally
    - Corporate influence beginning to become a negative factor
    - Top-level leadership feels distant/out of touch/uninformed
    - Confusing vision for the future (AOL and Yahoo?? Why?)

    Advice to Management

    Please treat the culture with care - preserve the great culture we have, and tone down the INSANE year-over-year growth focus.

    I worked at EdgeCast Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Edgecast crew is pretty good. Pretty fast paced environment. Good engineering team. Middle management from Edgecast days is still pretty good.

    Cons

    People brought in from the rest of Verizon are destroying this place. They have never developed any products in their lives and only believe in politics, blowing their own horn and appearing good to the managers. This drives the Edgecast folks nuts who want to focus on DOING good work and less so in be-s They are losing talent like crazy. Basically this is becoming a place of B-S and just tons and tons of B--S by people who basically make no meaningful contribution.

    Advice to Management

    I dunno.

    Pros

    Love working for VDMS, culture, smart employees, love the sales environment. Uncapped commission, beer and fruit, volleyball courts, great facility.

    Cons

    I'm confused how someone from an HR background is our president. He has no sales nor technology background. We need a real leader that understands technology instead of focusing on pointless operations and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Replace Bob Toohey, he's not fit for our VDMS president. Why the hell would you have a person from HR be our President??
