    Pros

    Great Vision for Big Data.

    Cons

    Everything else, from offshore R&D, to legacy customer base that has high costs and little revenue, revolving door to sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    Organic Big Data review by June or you're out of cash! And you're already too diluted to take anymore VC.

    Pros

    OpTier is an amazing place to work. The can-do, high-velocity, culture is one in a million and the company is led by some of the brightest minds in the industry. That, combined with brilliant developers and the "who's who" of seasoned software sales professionals combine to fuel OpTier's certain phenomenal growth and success. Technology professionals that can work anywhere they want, work at OpTier!

    Cons

    I haven't discovered any yet.

    Keep innovating. Keep the rapid pace. Keep hiring only the best and brightest.
