    Pros

    - Smart people, but generally humble and collaborative
    - Interesting technical challenges
    - Willingness to experiment with new tech
    - Work-life balance (flexible hours, can work from home, etc.)
    - DevOps is really a thing here - you're on-call for what you build
    - Fun culture (free lunch, beer, company events)
    - Management that genuinely cares about employees
    - Leadership is trending in the right direction since new CEO joined
    - Opportunity for technical career advancement
    - Progressive company values
    - Generous training budget (conferences etc.)
    - I am genuinely happy to come to work every day.

    Cons

    - Varying technical debt between different teams
    - Org can be somewhat product-driven, at the expense of doing things right (this is a more recent change, and there are signs it might be correcting)
    - It seems that some engineering teams are under more pressure than others, leading to some recent turnover (also due to product focus)
    - Hiring is a bit of a mess recently, leading to understaffed teams

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing mostly, but empower your engineers to work on things they know need fixing. Figure out the hiring situation (advertise more? be more involved in the community?)

    Pros

    Smart, fun people working in an honest, collaborative environment. Cutting-edge product with big opportunities still in front of us, and impressive growth so far. Plenty of support for personal growth and development. Great office perks and very little office politics.

    Cons

    Not the sexiest product. Not much hand holding - a place for self starters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work. Don't be afraid to try new things.

    Pros

    Fast-growing company, with a team full of intelligent and genuine people. Best in class product with an impressive customer base.

    Cons

    For a while we were lacking proper direction and leadership, but that's changed given the new CEO coming on board and our most recent product release.

    Pros

    Onboarding is fast but really well executed.
    Coworkers are humble, but brilliant and super motivated in a startup environment
    Ideas are heard and welcomed
    Transparency from upper management and throughout company
    Feel encouraged to learn more skills to help my career, well supported to grow in my career
    Environment is relaxed but still professional, not superficial or gluttonous
    I'm happy to get up every morning and go to work!
    Great work-life balance
    Cold brew & kombucha on tap, delicious lunches and breakfasts catered
    Opportunity to grow in a direction you are passionate about pursuing
    Even though it's a startup, I trust in the executive decisions being made, never feel like i"m going to lose my job

    Cons

    With a growing population it can be kind of hard to meet coworkers in other departments. You end up slacking people and never really meeting them. Maybe more cross-departmental bonding activities could help to keep the community feel.
    They also have other locations, so you may need to collaborate with other long distance (if that *is* an issue for you of course)

    Advice to Management

    I think you guys are doing great. super stoked to have all of you supporting us and your great leadership. Thanks!

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

    Pros

    Being in sales, I have been looking for a company like PagerDuty. They have done a fantastic job at setting a very solid foundation with a lot of very key logos. I recently participated in a fairly large trade show in NYC and without a doubt, every existing PagerDuty client had great things to say about the product. This in combination with the new CEO, PagerDuty is poised to accelerate as we take that next step in our lifecycle. It is a very exciting place with new logos being added to the client base every day.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. There are high expectations at PagerDuty, but the rewards are great. You have to work hard, but if you want to succeed anywhere, you would have to do the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your foot on the gas and keep those new features coming!

    I have been working at PagerDuty full-time

    Pros

    There is a reason that PagerDuty is consistently named the best company to work for by numerous company review websites, Glassdoor being one of them.

    The people are incredibly laid back, motivated and great to be around in general. I feel lucky to work at such a positive company.

    Perks:
    +Great leadership/mentorship
    +Laid back/up lifting environment
    +Innovative environment (latest technology, Mac computers, standing desks, etc.)
    +Ping pong/game room
    +Catered lunch every day and breakfast on Wednesday's.
    +Delicious snacks
    +Nap room
    +Generous time off and unlimited sick days
    +Soma location
    +Continuously growing and staying at the top of the market
    +Generous Pay

    Cons

    Working for a start up, you have to create your own processes sometimes because they aren't set in stone yet. This can either be a pro or a con depending on your personality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Your strong leadership motivates me to work harder every day.
