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

    Pros

    Great place to work. The team has strong bond and working with each other is easy. Focusing on real work related issues with political dramas. Comparable benefits to other public companies. Management cares about its employees.

    Cons

    As a startup company, budget is tight and thus facility is mediocre which is not a big deal. No year bonuses in the later years (no one actually expects bonuses in start-up companies).

    Advice to Management

    While it's a great place to work, some of the money could be spent in more important area instead of roadshows, etc. We needed to keep our burn-rate down.

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

    Pros

    I never had the "Sunday dreads" while working at Tabula. You know the dreads...Sunday afternoon hits and you dread Monday morning coming. I always looked forward to seeing and working with my team.

    Cons

    A small company of ~100 but split between 2 floors...making it hard to really connect with everyone. It was too easy to go a week or more without seeing a good percentage of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Help to narrow the team's focus to better ensure project completion in a timely manner and ramp to market success.

    Pros

    The technology is unique and very interesting. Coworkers are talented, but nevertheless very accessible. The culture in general is very open. It is a start up, so everyone needs to pull his or her weight.

    Cons

    Financials situation is not good. The vacation is pretty standard. New employee training is much better than anything I have seen, but that was expected considering unique technology.

    Advice to Management

    Better focus on delivery of products.

  8. "Execution problems"

    I worked at Tabula Inc full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart people to work with, relaxed start-up atmosphere, work hours were not outrageous only occasional fire fights.
    Interesting technology. Lot's of technical challenges

    Cons

    Unfocused projects: Projects did not always track across functional boundaries,
    lack of accountability: failure and lack of results were often ignored which is OK but only to a certain point
    Too much "middle" leadership

    Pros

    I was exposed to several different aspects of the business, I was able to work in many cross-functional efforts. The technology was amazing!

    Cons

    Market traction is slow to adopt and recognize technology, no 401k match.
