~Nosql! DUH!

Cons

Being part of a startup has it's cons. Management needs to make goals they can stick with.

    Pros

    Fast growing space. Several fast growing companies in this space.

    Cons

    * CEO and other C level people have their inner circle of people from past lives. If you are one of them you will be taken care of. If you are not you will be under-compensated and under-appreciated.

    ** The company hires mostly straight out of college grads with very little other work experience. The company does a great job of "internal branding and marketing" and creating hype giving the illusion of a great company. If you dig a little deeper you will find the hype that is portrayed is not reality.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding technology
    Extremely bright co-workers
    Fast growing company
    Customers love the product.
    The vast majority of your colleagues are fun

    Cons

    All senior leadership positions are filled with outsiders.
    Opportunities for advancement are null. One person is promoted to manager for every 20 senior VP positions with folks from MarkLogic.
    Some egos are a little bit "too" big.

    Advice to Management

    Your assumption that all "early" day employees do not know how to work in a "big" company is wrong.
    People were here early because they believed in the message, the company and the people, not because they could not get a job at IBM.
