Pros

Quality of people and environment. People are friendly and competent and they try to work smartly. The snacks are a nice touch. There is always something interesting technically going around. The company seems recession-resistent and has some momentum. Management is approachable and works with you instead of against you, for the most part. Not too much politics.

Cons

Typical startup lacks focus, tends to be reactive instead of proactive but that is changing. People are reassigned too often. Compensation is reasonable but could be higher. Being a security company, they emphasize best security practices which can go overboard in some cases.

Advice to Management

Focus on executing a few things well.

    Pros

    The team and product are great. IronKey was a fast paced, fun place to work, with a lot of high caliber people.

    Cons

    The company lost some momentum, and split into two. The Imation acquisition was miserable for all who went with that, as Imation had no idea what they would do with the new business unit that they created.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, it's too late, since the company has been sold. But if I could go back in time, my advice would be "stay the course", and don't go down the Trusted Access path.
