    I worked at Mozy (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mozy encourages exploration of technologies to expand their horizons. Management understands the changing needs of the tech industry and isn't afraid of this change.

    Cons

    There are many partly started programs and database all over the place and some outdated use of configuration management. Operating systems tend to always need updating along with the partly used projects.

    Advice to Management

    Insist on the clean-up of systems and an updated configuration management tool like Chef or Puppet. Look into Docker for DevOps to solve some of the many programs/updates needed. Look into EMC's Photon OS for optimized use of vSphere and vCloud.

    I have been working at Mozy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management was hands on where they needed to be, relaxed atmosphere, Open to new ideas.

    Cons

    It was easy to get 'stuck' at a position for a fairly long time while waiting for openings

    Advice to Management

    Management did what they could, I can't really make any suggestions that will help improve, especially not having been there for a while

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Breakroom food is great. Compensation amounts are OK, considering the majority of the workforce is in UT.

    Cons

    A little bit of politics. The culture is slowly starting to form to a corporate culture (coming from a small start up).

    Advice to Management

    Please try to not lose the small start up feel. Corporate culture is nice for benefits but not regarding conformity.

    I worked at Mozy full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work/life balance, great people

    Cons

    No clear innovative vision by upper management and poor execution/work ethic by middle management made for a frustrating environment for top performing first-line managers and individual contributors. Most of our top talent left and performance reviews are a joke, so it basically creates a dead-sea effect on talent.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work longer than 3pm every day. You're pace setters--how do you expect to have a high-performing team when you're just looking at the clock? And innovate... you really really need to get relevant again. Winning a deal here and there will feel good this quarter, but it's a death sentence. Mozy will not survive a more innovative competitor who's positioned correctly. Grow or die. To accomplish this, start by letting go of all the middle management and start over. These are the things that made Mozy successful (hard work, brilliance, innovation, the 'hacker' culture) all of which feel lost with the current team.

    I worked at Mozy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, involved leadership, fully stocked break room. They have an xbox and a wii, ping pong, foosball, and more for breaks. Lots of company parties, external activities and groups (mountain hiking, road biking). Great mix of work and home life.

    Cons

    Becoming more corporate, less start-uppy. Sometimes the company has trouble with maintaining focus and direction without the "ooh, a shiny object, let's chase it" syndrome.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of company progress and goals. Put everyone's jobs in context of the greater vision.

    Pros

    Cool culture - they retained some of the nice perks from being a startup. Pay is decent, and if you love the outdoors the location is pretty great.

    Cons

    The company has gotten kicked around a bit post-acquisition. First stop at EMC and then a handoff to VMWare has been a tough transition. Definitely some growing pains as well.

    Advice to Management

    Value people. Promote from inside. Don't kill perks to get just a few extra points on the bottom line.

    Pros

    Even though waterfall was the ad hoc development process for the company my team was allowed to experiment with Scrum. This is now being allowed to expand into other teams through a grass roots effort that is fully supported and encouraged by management.

    Each week we have training on all the products and services that the company is producing so we can know what is going on with other teams.

    We also have additional off site training. For example 25 employees became Certified Scrum Masters though training that was paid for by the company.

    Cons

    There are no white noise generators so it is easy to hear others speaking rows away. It is not realistic to move conversations into a conference room.
