      Very cult like organization-just tell them what they want to hear and you are fine.

      Pros

      -remote work -many smart people there

      Cons

      -Very disorganized-no strategic plans, no clear job descriptions, lots of confusion -Management will smile and say they want to help but then stab you in the back-every man for himself culture -CEO is driven by ego and company decisions are made that will boost his ego but not do much for the company overall. -sales executive team is extremely incompetent, they blame everyone else for lack of sales-they should have retired already -HR cannot be trusted and they encourage people to write good reviews on the company to boost the CEO's ego -They do not want to hear the truth, the only way to get along in the company is to agree and tell management what they want to hear. Too bad because there are many smart people who could add value if you just listen to them.

      Pros

      Fast paced Cutting edge Top of class engineering Best in the industry This is quite simply the best company I have ever worked for. The collaboration between database engineers is absolutely incredible. These are among the very best MySQL DBAs in the world. I know that sounds like hyperbole, but work with them as a customer or colleague for any length of time and you will come to understand that these are the best of the best. If you want to work with the most screamingly bleeding edge topologies, if you are interested in working with the biggest, baddest hardware doing the most concurrent transactions possible...we are talking >20K/TPS real world transactions every day- not work bench generated load for blogs - this is where you need to work. When customers face the hardest, most complex MySQL issues imaginable, they come to Percona...for a reason. This is special forces for MySQL. If you can do it, you will be family for life.

      Cons

      Pay scale is behind the industry. Not far behind, but behind nonetheless.

      When you work from home its hard to 'turn off'. Expect to make yourself extra 'visible' to your colleagues as they are remote too.

      Pros

      Percona attracts very talented individuals and has a very collaborative culture. Management is very transparent with info and stays involved with staff at all levels of the company on a regular basis. Even though the staff is remote, there are plenty of opportunities to engage with colleagues and stay connected to Percona. Wages and benefits are great, and Percona offers the best work/life balance I've experienced.

      Cons

      Being remote can lead to a disconnect from coworkers, but Percona offers plenty of opportunities to stay connected to colleagues.
