    I worked at Guardian Analytics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * I found the company to have a family atmosphere, in terms of it's employees. They are motivated and dedicated.
    * The compensation was solid, inline with my admittedly high expectations.
    * A lot of employee events, including paid gourmet food trucks, and off-sites at places like wineries.
    * I wasn't there very long (couldn't take the commute), but I felt confident with the business model and the prospects with the company.
    * H.R. was professional and easy to work with.

    Cons

    * There was some disorganization in the department I worked in (operations). I had to report to the manager, the tech lead, AND the project manager, each with differing priorities. It seemed like other departments were better structured and organized though.
    * Operations had a not-so-thoroughly researched vision of the direction to go with the infrastructure. Still, there plans weren't far off-base.

    Advice to Management

    The operations department could use some attention (this may have already happened since I left).

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, nice location, nice snack bar. I really enjoyed hanging out with a lot of the people I worked with

    Cons

    This company is seriously over-managed. I had more 'managers' then coworkers for a time. I'd also worry about the relationship between sales and engineering
