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

Pros

I've worked in a number start-ups and by far this is the most exciting. If you've done the whole pre-IPO thing a few times you learn to sniff out the DNA of those few companies that have the potential to really shake things up.....become disruptive I believe is the term.

Acquia is fast moving, entrepreneurial, challenging, focused and for the most part...Winning!

Cons

Its fast, fast, fast....you cant possibly grow a business this quickly without the a few teething problems. There are problem in every organisation and Acquia is no different. I am however glad that our problems are driven by demand for our services and not by lack of opportunities.

Advice to Management

Keep the recruitment bar high.........

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

    Pros

    Great company culture - more so in the HQ. Senior management seems to genuinely really care about its employees and are really approachable. 'Fun' start-up culture. Lots of opportunity to learn. Hard work recognised and appreciated. Very nice people in general to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes too many people get involved in a single project which slows it down, but I guess we do have the slogan 'jump in and own it'!

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

    Pros

    - Most of the tech people are amazingly helpful.

    Cons

    - Working long / odd hours is not unusual and my family hates it.
    - Ironocally the company made Drupal much less fun for me.
    - Drupalcon is no longer a fun event but a mere business opportunity.
    - Because of the workload, I struggle to contribute back to the community.
    - Sales can be too aggressive at times
