    I have been working at Sierraware full-time

    Pros

    * The work is challenging--in a good way--and I have learned a lot about operating systems and virtualization in an embedded environment.
    * Sierraware is a fast-paced, engineering-driven company

    Cons

    * Employees must work long hours before product releases. However, working long hours is to be expected in startups.

    Advice to Management

    * Keep up the good work.

    Work life balance is good for developer not for tester.

    Please consider employee's future.

    Pros

    Relatively new technlogy (virtualization and TEE). So can learn a lot (on your own, there is no mentor figure in the company expect for one or two)

    Cons

    Management is useless. They expect people fresh out of undergrad to develop systems. There is no training whatsoever and the requirements are vague. Employees are treated just as resources literally. No basic infrastructure. Management doesn't even provide a basic working environment for employees. No health benefits or any other benefits. Employee's contribution is measured on the number of hours worked which is stupid.

    Advice to Management

    Since the management consists of people who have worked in MNC's, I wonder why they provide an environment which is despicable compared to even startup standards. When an employee makes a mistake, reprimand him in _private_ and not in front of everyone. Treat your employees with respect.
