    I worked at Guavus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Once was a high flying technology company
    - Used to be considered a leader in big data analytics
    - Was filled with good people that cared

    Cons

    - After three rounds of layoffs, the best people all founds jobs and departed
    - The company is not closing deals fast enough which calls into question the cash position and burn rate
    - Detrimental executive hires with rampant political survival behavior
    - Too many risks that will hinder survival

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change out:
    - Executive team
    - Sales team
