    I worked at Nebula full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with brilliant people and learned a lot about cloud computing. We had a lot of fun in the early days building the product and got to work with some awesome customers.

    Cons

    Leadership was dysfunctional across departments and it was unclear on what our path to success was. That is why I left.

  6. "Big ambitions, poor execution"

    I worked at Nebula full-time

    Pros

    Smart, motiviated engineers. Great product idea. Great relationship with the open source community that, at the time, powered the Nebula product.

    Cons

    Engineering had too much power, ineffective product management, poor execution from the executive team. Culture was too frat house at times, driving some good talent away. I can now see why many startups fail in execution.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say at this point as they have shuttered their doors.

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

    Pros

    Some amazingly smart people work here. I've learned dozens of widely used open source technologies, worked on a variety of stimulating problems, and made some life-long friends.

    I've gained full-stack experience working on embedded systems, BIOS configuration, an initramfs, the Linux kernel, IPMI, a production SELinux policy, udev, LVM, MySQL, several distributed systems, virtualization, HTTP servers, and even client-side JavaScript.

    Cons

    We're venture-backed and still looking for a good market fit. We've got a million grand ideas that make it hard to have a clear product vision.

    Advice to Management

    Enable better communication between sales and engineering. Help us to speed up our release cycle.

    I have been working at Nebula full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The overall culture at Nebula is hardworking and fun, an energizing combination. The engineering team is whip smart, 100% engaged, and very collaborative, one of the best I've even worked with. I appreciate the support and autonomy I have to make decisions and get work done, and also how rapidly the team comes together to solve problems and respond to customer issues.

    Cons

    Company-wide, the right hand doesn't always know what the left hand is doing. As a growing and changing organization, we need to get better at checking assumptions and communicating with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Personally engage with leaders throughout the company, not just the ones you know well. By relying on limited input, decisions get made with insufficient information, and people feel undervalued.

    New management has really improved the company atmosphere, making this an exciting pace to be at this time for cloud computing.

    Still some work to be done building the infrastructure of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication with the employees.

    Pros

    Nebula's got great technology and a fast-paced environment. The company is rapidly growing with a solid reputation in the cloud community. The leadership is experienced and understands how to successfully build the company. The culture is one of innovation, teamwork and a lot of fun! As a start-up, you get to wear a lot of hats and help influence the company's future direction, which keeps things interesting.

    Cons

    No real cons that I have found.
