    I worked at Electric Cloud full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technology works and it is a solid product that you can get behind and not be embarrassed about.

    Cons

    Massive turnover. New mgt all the time - which shows poor leadership from the CEO. His first time running a company so he gets nervous and instead of leading he fires and hires to cover up his shortsightedness. The new CRO is a east coast wind bag who does not know the culture or the industry, who is super cheap. A really bad move by the board and CEO hire him he will be the undoing of the company.

    Advice to Management

    STICK TO A PLAN! PAY YOUR EMPLOYEE'S WELL. DON'T BE CHEAP.

    "Some great people but best days are behind them. Sales is an "old man's" club."

    I worked at Electric Cloud full-time

    Pros

    Initial technology was ground breaking and unique; have some terrific marketing folks who are smart, dedicated and very talented.

    Cons

    Current technology is "me too" and available from many more established players; sales is again, an "old man's" club - terrific if you are an old man looking for work, for all others seeking a non-sexist opportunity, keep looking.

    I worked at Electric Cloud full-time

    Pros

    There was a lot to be said for this company until they came to the conclusion that people are entirely disposable and they should pay for the mistakes of management.

    Cons

    50 people dumped in one day. No warning. Some of them had just been relocated overseas and were abandoned there. Would you work for a company that treats people this way?

    Pros

    - Good pay
    - GREAT benefits
    - Lots of interesting work and product ownership
    - Talented engineers, lots of mentorship
    - Friendly people

    Cons

    Management focuses too much on employee office presence and number of hours worked, not work being done. If you take too much time off, work from home too often, or come into work later (but stay later), you'll have problems.

    Finances are tight. You'll be using outdated equipment, and raises and bonuses are non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee productivity and happiness than hours worked.

    Pros

    Great technology and collaborative environment. There is a good sense of community at EC. Everyone is really eager to jump in and help.

    Cons

    Stability of exec team seems a bit tenuous. Long-term investors for a company that is not entirely self sustaining after 12 years doesn't bode well for the company's viability. As of late the company seems caught between 2 identities.
