    I have been working at Egnyte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been in Egnyte for 3+ years as senior engineer. It was a bit challenging coming from big company to adapt to the start-up culture. But Egnyte has a great work culture that allows a good work life balance. I have flexibility to WFH when I need it the most. Plus, Egnyte has an open door culture, leaders have great vision and execution plan, opportunities are plenty to avail. I am fortunate to be part of a wonderful...

    Cons

    Don’t have lucrative perks that most of the bigger Bay Area start ups have. For example: 401K matching, and health/life insurance could be better.

    Pros

    The people! From the interview process to now, everybody shows so much love and support. Leadership and management are intentional about helping you figure out your career path. Everyone is very capable and driven, yet humble and always willing to help. You feel welcomed from the start.

    Cons

    Pros

    Spirits in the workplace are higher than any other place I've worked. The culture unique and great to be a part of. Departmental collaboration is encouraged, and helps create a feeling of success which can be shared by all parties. As the company grows, that "one team" feeling is somehow still retained.

    Cons

    I cannot think of cons at this time.

    I have been working at Egnyte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For me as a developer, one of the most interesting aspects of working for Egnyte has been the range of projects I have had the freedom to work on. Even as a relatively new hire I had ability to pick up and become the owner of various pieces. It is often fairly quick to see tasks I have worked on materialize into improved system performance / resolved customer issues. In terms of culture I would characterize the environment...

    Cons

    As the company grows in customers and employees, some of our processes need to become more streamlined. For example, we need to have a smoother hiring/onboarding pipeline in order to meet our headcount growth goals. We are also trying to quicken our product release cycle and have faced some obstacles there.

    Pros

    In my team, everyone is willing to help and give you the time and resources to learn at your own pace. It's a casual, easygoing workplace environment; yet everyone is hardworking. Like the culture here.

    Cons

    Need a better way of stream-lining different processes here in the company

    I worked at Egnyte full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One of the biggest positives for me was the great people and company culture. Unlike bigger companies, it's easy to get to know coworkers from different departments. They do a great job in hosting events and welcoming all people of different backgrounds. It was awesome to work on a diverse amount of projects and ship it to end users. If you're experienced, like a challenge, and want to make an impact, Egnyte is...

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly and they should invest in hiring in other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in research and in understanding users. It isn't just figuring out "how" to do it but also "why" we do it.

    Pros

    Open door policy is great with the exec team. CEO tries to get to know everyone and engages with all employees regularly. Lots of diversity at Egnyte and groups are constantly involved in community engagement. In the last year, the HR team is doing great things like increasing employee moral and promotes monthly events that boost employee engagement. Lots of opportunities for growth and management listens to feedback,...

    Cons

    Lots of changes. It is important to keep an open mind and be flexible. Growing company pains and resources available are not always the best. Employees are very crafty and make things work.

    I worked at Egnyte full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Egnyte is a company that values the right hard work and "play to win" attitude. I have never been in a company that works so hard to give all the support, tools, and guidance to each and every employee to insure success. It is very refreshing to have this level of care and attention from an employer. I think if anyone is looking for place that isnt just a job, this is a great place to consider. Egnyte is a place where...

    Cons

    They will treat you like an adult. Meaning, you need to be accountable for your role. If you are looking for a place where you can hide under a rock and not produce or perform, this isnt your place. They reward hard work and give you all the help you need to succeed. For some, even that isnt enough.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you hire people you want. Keep giving the support and creating opportunity for everyone.

    Pros

    I've been at Egnyte 5+ years and the company culture and values continue to keep me motivated even in this hot bay area market. I enjoy working with some of the best and brightest talent in Silicon Valley and enjoy the startup feel even when we are scaling at such a rapid pace. The working environment feels pretty flexible, management knows what they are doing, and company culture has recently improved as HR has...

    Cons

    Not enough brand awareness of Egnyte. I always have to say I work for a Box or DropBox competitor.
