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

Pros

Employees get to work on whatever they want in the context of MongoDB and make it open source. Incredible engineering team that is based in New York City. The opportunity to make a dent in the universe by changing the way people think about building applications and working with data.

Cons

Company business model based on services rather than products.

Advice to Management

Continue to have the engineers be in charge.

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

    Pros

    There are so many things that need to be done with the high growth rate of the company that nobody is pigeon-holed in just one place or one just one type of job.

    Flexible hours and vacation are great but underused by many.

    People are happy to hear your ideas, and discuss them; as an open source company there is no limitation to what you can do on the internet with mongodb.

    Cons

    Like any growing company there are more challenges along the way, and these include: lack of organization responsibilities, definition, and roles, trouble with building effective communication channels internally (betweens groups and depts), lots of new employees which need to learn/train before being effective, holding work quality high, professionalism, over-worked and under-acknowledged employees, as well as providing structure for professional growth internally.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and open internally. Information is best shared to empower people... this does not feel like what is being done now from the top down.

    I worked at MongoDB part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great culture. not very hierarchal. good work life balance. hiring a lot of people and growing very fast. Very smart people work at the company.

    Cons

    more uptight than some tech firms. unlike some tech startups where there are kegs and fooseball tables, 10gen has a slightly more rigid culture.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing
