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

Pros

Surrounded by great, motivated people on a day to day basis. You become close to the team you are working with. It is a start-up so it gives you opportunity to take on a variety of tasks. Benefits are pretty good. Not great, but good.

Cons

Management has a tendency to either micro-manage or be completely absent, depending on the manager and particular department. The product is constantly having problems, which leads to difficulties supporting and selling to customers. Not enough accountability with the Engineering department. It is difficult to get raises/promotions. Work/life balance can be difficult for some, depending on what you are doing. Location seems to be out of the way for most employees. Most people are commuting an hour or more each day to get to work and excessive telecommuting in some teams is frowned upon.

Advice to Management

Work on getting the Engineering department up to caliber. Make sure there is accountability and everyone is pulling their weight. The CEO needs to be more cognizant of the company and stop shutting himself in a room all day. Talk to employees, honestly listen to what they have to say.

    I have been working at Bunchball full-time

    Pros

    Some sharp dedicated people work at Bunchball

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch with market demands for the product. Product is constantly lagging behind market needs and is extremely buggy. The customer support model is completely lacking resulting in unhappy clients and over worked employees. CEO constantly refers to how "this strategy worked at Tumbleweed" despite a massive difference in product offerings. Everything seems to come back to how great Tumbleweed was and how everything should operate like Tumbleweed, as is evidenced by constantly hiring people from that company. Company seems to be rebuilding Tumbleweed rather than building to match current market reality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what customers and prospects are asking for, and what employees are telling you needs to be done.
