    I have been working at Wasabi (MA) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wasabi is a cloud storage startup with bold plans to take on software titans like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft and has the people in place make an incredible impact on the cloud storage market.

    Wasabi is also...
    -An enthusiastic, diverse, respectful, and fired-up group of people
    -A product built from the vision of very successful founders
    -A productive atmosphere that management has worked hard to preserve
    -A place I love to come into every day

    Cons

    -Everyone on my team (software engineers) work incredibly hard to keep our product reliable and stable. Sometimes that can mean putting in extra hours.
    -(I don't really think this is a con, but could turn some people away) It is a very autonomous environment.. we are expected to be proactive and make decisions without someone telling us exactly what to do every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Speaking for the rest of us, we all appreciate you

    Pros

    At Wasabi you get to come into a beautiful office and work with an amazing team who are genuinely passionate about the vision for the company. Input is always welcome and management has an open door policy. The exec team is fantastic and just being around all of the positive energy in the office makes you want to do the best job you possibly can. There is so much you can learn from everyone at Wasabi whether you are just starting your career or if you are well into your career. Flexible vacation time and some work from home days, which is always a plus. I genuinely believe in this company and I enjoy coming to work every day. I couldn't be happier.

    Cons

    General problems that come along with commuting into Boston

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work and keep bringing in top notch team members!

    I have been working at Wasabi (MA) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked in software in the Boston area for a long time, and Wasabi has by far the smartest and best engineering team I have ever worked with.

    We follow all best practices (Agile, etc.), and we have a good time doing it.

    Everyone has an equal voice, so we all feel free to contribute, and we all do contribute.

    Finally, and maybe most importantly, everybody is very respectful and kind to each other.

    Cons

    Our engineering team is not very diverse. We are very conscious of this shortcoming, and we are actively trying to increase our diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Wasabi (MA) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Real top-notch development team, filled with experienced people who have "been there, done that" several times with previous successful startups and don't get caught up in the typical start-up drama that plague less experienced teams. We do thing both the correct way (good processes, automated test coverage, agile development, well-tuned monitoring and real-time statistics/dashboards) as well as moving at a good tempo. We have a simple-to-understand proposition "Faster than Amazon S3, cheaper than Amazon Glacier" which brings us lots of customers. Supportive and friendly culture company-wide. Great technology framework and tooling choices - all the latest high-performance and up-to-date tech stacks!

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what has made us successful so far.

    Pros

    Everyone "gets" the idea. Super fast data and very low cost. Pretty simple to explain the value proposition.

    Great team. Almost everyone is a start up veteran, many serial entrepreneurs. Very clear vision from founders.

    Amazing office space and working in downtown Boston.

    Cons

    Usual issues working in downtown Boston.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused. Seems like another winner.
