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

    Pros

    The changes over the past year or so have been remarkably positive for the most part - there is a clearer sense of direction, focus and leadership. The structure of the company is pretty flat - all of the executives are friendly, involved, and approachable (which is a significant change from the past).

    Furthermore, Engine Yard is a great place to grow your career. Employees are generally encouraged to manage themselves and there's a lot of opportunity to identify and work on projects of your choosing (whether it's to develop your career or you've identified an opportunity for the company).

    Cons

    General start up cons - thing can change quickly and sometimes it takes effort to stay informed. Sometimes there's too little process involved and sometimes too much.

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid the same mistakes we made in the past.

    Pros

    Engine Yard is a great place to work. Very passionate employees. Excellent product. Focus on quality. Very innovative. Interesting group of people.

    Cons

    Like any venture-backed company, it's a lifestyle commitment to work at Engine Yard. It will be a time commitment and the work of each person matters. Slackers need not apply.

    Pros

    Extremely intelligent and dedicated people work here developing cutting edge technology and providing superior customer service. There are not many places you find such talent.

    Cons

    Long hours but it's getting better. Working with cutting edge technology can be good and bad depending on your goals.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the principles the company was built upon. Continue to hire managers based on those principles.
