Pros

LogLogic is actually a company with great technology, strategy and vision. It essentially created the log management market when others are still thinking about it. It made the right decision to focus on selling to the C-level people as well as compliance (where the $$ was and still is in many cases.)

Cons

LogLogic is somewhat short on execution due to various reasons. Part of it is that it requires much stronger engineering leadership.

Advice to Management

Again, as mentioned above, LogLogic requires much stronger engineering leadership and execution in order to succeed in this market. It's getting some very strong competitors in this market but it still has a very good chance.

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

    Pros

    Fairly light and simple workload
    Experience using various Apache libraries

    Cons

    Very low base pay, and apparently the HR claims to have done "market research" and claims the wages are "fair with respect to qualification and comparison to other firms". Not sure how they conduct market research, but paying Software Engineers less than 70k a year in the Silicon Valley is certainly not "fair compared to other firms"
    Extremely difficult to get a raise, they always say "you have to prove yourself if you want more raise, not happy with it this year? Prove you are better for next year". The next year rolls around and you get the same thing with a pitiful raise on top of your already terrible base pay
    Task management is poor: you either get loaded with a ton of stuff or you have nothing much to do at all
    Micromanagement, they really care about what time you get there and leave, as well as what your browser is pointing to
    Talking loud at scrum, enjoy reporting at meetings, sending status emails.... all these make you seem much more impressive than doing actual work
    Plenty of tension and politics to go around for everyone
    Expect and demand people to work extremely hard while giving them terrible pay

    Advice to Management

    You get what you paid for when it comes to engineers. Plenty of smart people work here, but if you don't pay them enough, they probably not going to work for you as hard as you want them to.
