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

Pros

Focus on communication, no person left out, diversity, awesome learning opportunities

Cons

Fast pace, always changing, senior management separation, lack of follow through

Advice to Management

Focus on accountability, use more personality training across the board, implement peer review based incentives that are not a popularity contest

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

    Pros

    Lot's to learn, lot's to do. Snack and drinks are a very nice thing to have. They try really hard to have a positive culture. Will look fantastic on your resume.

    Cons

    No project ownership. Many tasks are refactoring code, fixing bugs, or worse, adding features without any chance to fix the underlying code. Way to much process, easy to get held up for a week. Management gives no feedback until it's to late. Reviews are mandatory but don't matter when it comes to pay considerations. Some team members work constantly, at all hours and every day. This makes a 50-60 hour week light in comparison, and management encourages you to complete more projects to 'get on par'.

    Advice to Management

    Cut some process, be prompt with feedback and expectations, encourage project ownership and discourage project pirates.

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

    Pros

    Strong leadership, great products, free beer and snacks!

    Cons

    No sales training for new employees, not willing to invest in employees long term. Very "sink or swim" right from day 1.
