    Great for a couple years

    Feb 3, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great work-life-balance. Nice coworkers. Good training. Care about employees and customers.

    Cons

    Not much incentive to work here longer than a couple years. The bootstrapping of Linode, although something I can respect the founder for, doesn't benefit employees at all. It just benefits the near-billionaire sole owner. Better to work somewhere in tech that gives you shares of publicly traded stock so you can retire 10-20 years sooner. Unless you enjoy being a pawn for 5+ years.
