Advice to Management

Really push the product to be everything it can be – I love using MongoDB, and it works well now, but everyone at the company knows there are many more improvements that need to be made.

Also, the higher executives should probably engage more with employees on an everyday level – execs can often be seen moving throughout the office without knowing many of their employees names or even saying hello. As the company grows, it becomes less feasible to know most people, but it didn't even seem like there was much effort to personally connect with employees. A nitpick, no doubt, but worth mentioning nonetheless.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at MongoDB as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    10gen is not too big. As an intern we had lunch and question sessions with the founders and CEO. They gave us choices for our project and hooked us up with mentors. All of the projects were real work that is important to the company. Everyone is friendly, you can just go up and talk to them. They had intern events like movies, lazer tagging, etc. every week.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the crazy perks like free cafeteria, hair cuts, busses, etc., that you get at big companies like Facebook or Google.
