    Iron.io was a pleasant experience

    Pros

    I grown from a Developer Evangelist into what I would define as a Customer Success Engineering (customer development) role. During that time I was able to help implement codebase changes for the HUD(Dashboard), various tooling, execute very new proof of concepts, help engineering teams at top companies implement working user facing problems/solutions in a wide variety of languages. Play a voice in the development of the marketing and sales process, bring feedback, bugs, issues from the users back to the team through various channels or implementing a fix myself. Iron's community of users absolutely LOVE using IronWorker and IronMQ and are passionate and vocal about this fact. They would also very readily provide feedback on a very consistent basis. Management is not afraid to move fast and cut the bureaucracy/political games you might see at other companies. + great slack/office/work life flexibility + great revenue growth and product market fit. + community involvement/leadership in meetups, conferences + diverse set of minds, personalities, and backgrounds across the entire company + to Heavybit membership/office (they have since started migrating to their own office after raising Series A)

    Cons

    - Move Fast and Break Things has it's downsides Innovating fast does not always lend itself to backwards compatibility, more team planning when migrating things such as api versions or retiring old features would be great. There were a few product transitions where engineering move faster/slower than docs, marketing, sales, tutorials can catch up which can cause a influx of customer/internal discord and confusion. - It can be difficult to find a path of growth within the organization, the organization is still growing quickly so many positions and teams may not already exist. If you have a clear idea of where you want to grow into it's best you seriously communicate that early and often in your 1on1's, management will listen. If you are a bit less clear on what your path forward, as I was, it can become a bit of a head scratcher.

    Pros

    Possibly one of the best offices in the city. After moving from incubator to incubator it was great to have our own place.

    Cons

    The original management made really poor financial decisions. After the second massive round of layoffs and they were pushed out, it started to get a bit better.

    Interesting work, management was still figuring it out

    Pros

    If you're an engineer, you'll get very interesting work to do. The company is building products that compete in part with big cloud providers, and selling them to big enterprises. If you're in marketing, business development or sales, you'll have a great time - the company was (and I believe still is) doing really well, and the product roadmap is hitting a chord with customers. Finally, whatever role you play, the company has a really good set of core values. They were struggling to stick to them when I was there, but I think they'll grow up with a solid foundation.

    Cons

    When I left, the size of the engineering team was reaching a point where "winging it" wasn't cutting it anymore. Engineering management was coming in and everyone was still figuring everything out. Also, the engineering team seemed to be chaotic and, since this is such an engineering-focused product and market, other teams (product, business, marketing) were lost much of the time. My last day was over 6 months ago and they move fast, so I imagine the management team has figured this out by now and made changes.

    Pros

    Great technology, cool people, lunches were great, seemed like a promising opportunity.

    Cons

    Apparently the suits decided cut the workforce, and one day suddenly a whole bunch of people got laid off. Seems like things were badly mismanaged and they don't really know what direction they want to go in. Screwed over a lot of good people.
