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

Pros

What I'm doing actually matters. What the company is doing actually matters. And it's nice to work at a company where your users love the product.

Cons

Given how fast-growing we are, things are always in motion. You have to have a certain tolerance for ambiguity, a willingness to adapt, and the desire to roll up your sleeves.

Advice to Management

Make sure you help the young employees grow with the company.

    Pros

    Flexible and hard working people. Smart and self aware. Know where they need to improve and have a plan. Great staff that cares a lot and is ambitious but not political.

    Cons

    This isn't an office 9-5 mail in job. This is a pro to me but may be a con for those not looking to put the effort in.

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

    Pros

    Great technology, developer and market adoption and market leadership. Product is very easy to install and configure for basic use cases but needs to mature to meet claims of trud web scalability.

    Cons

    Exec positions are somewhat of a clique, most being filled by former MarkLogic execs. They seem to be making some of the same missteps at MongoDB. Also, product direction is set exclusively by the founder and current CTO. Senior level product managers will have a very difficult time making an impact and will spend most of their time on junior level activities. Also, despite claim of being supportive of remote employees, the culture is not conducive for those working outside of the New York office, specifically when it comes to key business areas such as product management and development.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage participation in product direction and strategy from those outside of the current VP of Products and CEO positions.
