    I have been working at Electric Cloud full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at Electric Cloud for just about one year. Great culture and lots of smart people to collaborate with. Strong Sales Engineering team and industry leading technology. Senior Management works directly with people in the field and provide positive support to get things done.

    Cons

    Sales cycles tend to be too long. Company focuses more on West Coast and need additional marketing and sales support out East.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more resources on East coast.

    I worked at Electric Cloud full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Electric Cloud's products are an industry leader. Product Managers and Sales Engineers are experienced, and the sales teams have a lot of energy.

    Cons

    There are clearly issues in executive management that trickle down to their direct reports. The sales organization (among other areas of the company) isn't supported as well as they should be, with the proper on-boarding and training necessary to make them successful. Lots of turnover. Talented people are leaving because they're not given the tools or the management to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to change (from execs to senior level and directors, with few exceptions). There are people in positions of power and authority who do not have the experience or the talent to handle it.

    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.

    Pros

    Great product in a high-growth market segment. High-trust culture emphasizes performance excellence while omitting excessive oversight.

    Cons

    Size and growth rate demand selective resource allocation - little "wiggle room" for exploratory efforts.

    Advice to Management

    "Complacency is death" - let's keep listening to customers and continuously deliver ever-increasing value to them. Thought leadership attracts interest that drives evolution.

    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.
