    I have been working at WSO2 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work in R&D space. Getting exposed in to entire wso2 SOA stack including customer engagements to work in front if real customer. WSO2 treats the employees very well.

    Cons

    It might not be the best paying company around, but they treat employees good enough. Due to the rapid expansion, most of the time the work place and old culture seems deviating from what it was earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Should consider quality aspect more when expanding WSO2 Engineering. Also WSO2 has a rotational based model for people to work with R&D stuff as well as customer related stuff. For some people that might be too context switching even though I found it very exciting and excellent.
