    Pros

    The pay is good and there are opportunities to rapidly take on more responsibility.

    Cons

    The company has changed strategy three times in a year, and senior management is unable to articulate what the new strategy actually means. That causes immense confusion, particularly since the company has laid off approximately 33% of staff over the past year.

    The senior sales leaders are very disorganized. They don't respond to emails, are condescending to other parts of the company, and use wildly optimistic pricing models to justify their forecasts.

    The CEO and his top advisor define a new product strategy in such a vague manner that it could be interpreted in four ways. I think they honestly lack the depth of knowledge to lead this company. A strategy that malleable cannot be used to direct the rest of the company.

    Morale is constantly low. Working hours are long, stress is high, and good employees are constantly leaving to take jobs with higher pay at the competition. Those good employees are not replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company if you can.

    Pros

    Great pay, excellent engineers, awesome work purpose, fun product.

    Cons

    Lack of process and quality control. Management have been chasing the wrong ideas for a long time and finally is adapting to the market. Layoffs were very broad and unfair to those who were shoehorned into roles.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time understanding your people and fixing the process.

    Pros

    Great potential technology. Brightest minds in OpenStack with a deep bench. Top commit and code contributor

    Terrific Office Space.

    Killing it with ATT and Volkswagen

    Brain drain related to recent lay-offs

    Product looking for solution based upon AWS domination and "almost there open source"

    AWS ready for prime time and OpenStack consistently six months from enterprise grade

    "Not engaging enough"

    Pros

    This company pays well and provides great benefits. Great pay, free food, work from where you are. Opportunity to work with new technologies.

    Cons

    Currently needs help with direction in where they are headed. A lot of guys aren't being used to their full potential as they are put in roles well below them or are kept on projects not because their skill sets are required but because the head count fulfills the contract. In completely objective terms its basically glorified temp agency.
