Negative Outlook

I have been working at NuoDB as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Great coworkers
Easy commute
Decent pay
Working on really cool projects
Plenty of snacks, beer, soda on hand

Cons

Often put's the "cart before the horse"
People leave mysteriously, without real acknowledgement from management
Nepotism is alive and well

Advice to Management

There is a revolving door for senior management (newer VP's and C-Level hires rarely last longer than a few months). Senior Management seems to participates in snarky, bullying behavior, which has led to a really high turnover.

The company puts too much emphasis on marketing and tends to oversell what we can actually do at this point, placing a lot of pressure on the engineers to catch up to public expectation.

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

    Pros

    The best things about working at NuoDB are:

    1) Working with smart, engaging and collegiate colleagues.
    2) Solving hard computer science problems.
    3) Working directly with customers to understand their needs, and iterating designs and solutions with them.
    4) Having a real impact on deciding on our strategy and how we execute it.
    5) Trying to accomplish something unique.
    6) People are trusted to manage their time and projects effectively.

    Cons

    NuoDB is still a startup, which means:

    1) At times it is all hands on deck to try and accomplish something to a tight deadline (most of us thrive in this kind of environment, thankfully!)
    2) We are resource constrained, which means we need to be creative in our approach to solving problems.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that we retain focus on our overall strategy and resist being pulled in opposing directions by disparate customer demands.

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

    Pros

    They have so much potential and a dedicated team seeing it through. The BDR role is more than calling, it is a fundamental component of the sales and marketing process.

    Cons

    Things move slow, and it takes time to learn the highly technical product.
