    Pros

    * You are affiliated with a company that sets the technical bar in the Java and open source worlds.
    * You are surrounded by some of the most intelligent and capable people in the industry.
    * People outside the company seek out you and really respect your opinions.
    * You're on the leading edge of the Java ecosystem.

    Cons

    * There can be a lot of travel unless you're working for a product team.
    * Consultants can feel isolated sometimes; conferences help.

    Advice to Management

    * Offer consulting positions that are centered in smaller regions rather than all of America or all of Europe.
    * Allow product team members to work remotely rather than requiring them to be physically co-located in a development center.

    I worked at SpringSource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly talented colleagues, good pay, fun projects, plus teaching courses was fun.

    Cons

    Lots of travel, had to keep up with new products & technologies on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Let product team members work remotely without having to relocate.

    Pros

    A company of very intelligent and highly motivated people. Very exciting atmosphere for employees. A tech savvy company that is always looking ahead in computing, not behind. A game changer.

    Cons

    Still a relatively young company going through the pains of growth. Now the company is trying to do this in the environment of a much larger organization.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work on improving the inter-company communications. Many employees feel out of touch. Company also needs to increase efforts to better enable employees and foster employee professional growth. The balance of work and life could also be much improved.
