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

Pros

Jive is a great company to work for. Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. I have never worked for a company with so many positive and outgoing people. Everyone here works extremely hard, and knows how to have a good time as well to help balance the work.

Cons

Ramp up was quick, but was well worth it. Get you into your roll and functioning immediately, just have to be prepared for it.

    Pros

    Company Product: #1 in the market (as ranked by any metric) analysts, customers, adoption levels, etc.. the company is well funded, well managed, and well positioned.
    Climate: wonderful offices in Palo Alto, 100 places to eat
    Culture: the smartest, friendliest people I've ever worked with my career
    Jive uses it's own product
    Compensation:

    Cons

    It can consume your life. There is always something more to do. Can be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Create (or acquire) better time/project management tools/processes.
    Make meetings 30 mins (not 60)
    Get in the press more... and do a better job telling how crappy everyone else is compared to Jive!
    Hire 'Success Managers' people who do nothing but enjoy helping customers succeed post sale.
    Sales reps cannot do this.. and go back out to hunt.
