    I worked at Fuze full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation package and benefits. Product improving in leaps and bounds. Mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    Where to start... Don't trust the goals/KPI's set by management, they won't be there in a year given the revolving door. New CEO/CFO/Board members let alone the massive changes in sales mgr/director level over 2016/17. Burning through funding (look at the huge repetitive rounds) leaving options likely worthless. Sales process is designed for million dollar deals and doesn't suit a territory with smaller opportunities.

    Massively crowded market with Microsoft and Cisco close to establishing a dominant position similar to AWS/Microsoft in IAAS cloud.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to a bigger fish ASAP. At a minimum take the hand cuffs off the sales team and trust them to decide when to POC much earlier in the sales cycle.

    I worked at Fuze full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great CEO he definitely has a vision for the company and I think will some day get the company to an IPO. Flexible work schedule, beer and wine Thursdays, commuter reimbursement. Some departments work really hard for the company.

    Cons

    The benefits are terrible and don't look to be getting any better. The communication between departments is horrible and has been like that for 12 years. This is a blame game company, no one takes responsibility for their actions and senior management doesn't do anything to support the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Start to value the employees that work hard to move the company into the future. The staff is leaving and it is because departments don't get recognized for their work. Additionally, there are members of the staff who are above everyone else including the executives, doesn't work when you are trying to be collaborative. This company is two steps forward and three steps back, always.
