    I have been working at Vyatta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some smart, knowledgable, and deligence people around. A good place to learn networking and Linux in depth. Good compensation with some work/life balance.

    Cons

    Politics is inceasing. Product is not well defined, and even worse, the efforts toward product definiation is decreasing. Overall performance is decreasing.

    Advice to Management

    Do open perfomance review for everyone

    Pros

    Great, knowledgeable people.
    Everyone concerned about the company and the product.
    Great product concept.

    Cons

    Too much to do and too few people.
    Target customer not well defined. Vision for product not well defined.
    Seems to be a lot of short term goal setting, but long term strategy is hazy at best.
    Free community version competes directly with paid version.

    Advice to Management

    Define the target customers, define the product roadmap to support the targets and expand resources to execute in the needed timeframe.

    Pros

    The building has a roof which keeps the rain out. Pizza occasionally appears in the conference rooms. A few smart engineers & support people who are passionate about making a difference (all of whom are looking for a new job).

    Cons

    Vyatta is a train wreck looking for a place to happen. Shifting priorities, huge turnover, large company politics and backstabbing culture....all delivered in tiny company packaging. What fun.

    Advice to Management

    Let a team of professionals take over.
