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

Pros

- Great company values, everyone is really open and happy to help you out. The company is full of amazing and lovely people. My manager was fantastic to me and all of HR were happy to help with whatever problem I had.
- Generous benefits package
- Many company events for you to get to know people in the company
- Free snacks, coffee and free lunch every wednesday.
- Tons of free T-shirts.
- You can create your own opportunities around the company.
- Would very much recommend working here, even though I am leaving. I am purchasing all my stock before I leave.
- Tons of committees to join around the company
- gym reimbursement.

Cons

The year to year raises were lower than expected (4%). When you negotiate your offer, make sure it is a salary you can be happy with for at least a couple years before you sign, especially if you are an engineer.

Advice to Management

Compensate engineers with their current market value.

    I worked at SugarCRM part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - experience to carry to another career
    - challenging to allow individuals with talent to excel and be noticed
    - possibilities to affect new releases through collaboration
    - great for internal (cupertino) workers, and many company retreats

    Cons

    - not enough resources to manage customer support requests
    - not enough remaining original staff / talent to carry on original SugarCRM traditions
    - as a open-source offering on the market, not enough feedback from developer community before releasing software

    Advice to Management

    Needs to find balance with previous SugarCRM culture, and new company start-up model. Find a way to utilize previous customers experiences to guide future development in the product, and company as a whole.
