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

Pros

- Fantastic people, very much a "family"
- Serious commitment to work-life balance (from CEO on down)...*no* expectation to work over 40 hours a week
- Smart leadership, tech-savvy VPs and CEO
- Absolute concern about employees welfare
- Fun and enjoyable projects...stimulating work technically
- Startup atmosphere and benefits, but financial stability of an established company

Cons

- Poor health insurance options in Seattle (brand new office, needs more health options)
- Seattle office is in an inconvenient location for bus/train lines and auto commuters (temporary -- looking for new office in better location)

Advice to Management

You've got the formula for business success and for keeping your employees happy and motivated. Scaling culture as we grow will be the biggest challenge.

    Pros

    Customers really love the product! Excellent engineering work environment, NR expects 40 hrs a week and that you will take the time to leave software better than you found it. Low meeting-to-work ratio, rapidly growing with lots of opportunities to grow, management that is focused on long-term cultivation.

    Cons

    Evolving office process and team structure due to ongoing growth can leave you feeling like things are constantly adjusting. If you're comfortable with that, great!
