    I worked at Fusion-io full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awsome Tech. Change agents mostly interested. Compensation was fair, and money could be made if you demonstrated good hustle and work ethic.

    Cons

    IPO was a blast, but we were indentured. Territory quota assignments were not thought thru very clearly. Small markets were dealt the same revenue objectives as large markets, thus making it difficult to quota achieve in smaller markets.

    Advice to Management

    This is irrelevant now

    I have been working at Fusion-io as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch, Ping Pong, Foosball, Challenging problems to really get you thinking. Friendly environment, good leadership.

    Cons

    For the sake of listing a con, however minimal it is, as an intern the training was very minimal and the expectations were that of a full-time employee. As I said, this was hardly an issue as I was able to work through the tasks without too much trouble.

    I have been working at Fusion-io full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch every day, fascinating technology, good camaraderie and atmosphere. Many very bright people to work with. The SLC location is very nice too, with views of the valley and easy access to Big and Little Cottonwood canyons.

    Cons

    Weak product management. The benefits are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Give the Product Managers some teeth!

    I worked at Fusion-io full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work and life balance, ability to work from home, lots of smart engineers, some very interesting technology, buy out by SanDisk gives some much needed financial muscle and (hopefully) some mature engineering best ractices

    Cons

    Too much Flux and change in engineering which causes constant refactoring, not enough communication between development, QA and product management, buy out by SanDisk is causing lots of fear and uncertainty

    Advice to Management

    Way too many VP's, so cut the chaff.
