    I have been working at Lavastorm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lavastorm has a long history of helping major telcos and financial service companies with a wide range of data preparation, agile ETL, and advanced analytics solutions. Dataverse is enabling Lavastorm to build on this and deliver this same power more quickly with monthly releases and to more user with dramatic ease of use. The culture is more collaborative, more open, and more customer focused than ever.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes in the past few years and there was a lot of internal processes that needed to be reworked and improved. Much of that has been done now.

    I worked at Lavastorm

    Pros

    Great technology initially- adopted by early analytics market users Visual interface set the standard.

    Poor management, new CEO didn't understand people management or motivation. Technology needed to be funded to keep up with the competition. Solutions not platforms

    Pros

    This Company is on a mission. For those who are willing to make the most of the opportunities available and also take accountability to make it happen, anything is possible in Lavastorm. Exciting times

    Cons

    Lavastorm is a relatively small Company on a growth mission. This means roles are pretty broad, people are expected to roll up their sleeves and help out. There is no 'not my job' mentality. This is by no means a negative, but it is not for everybody.

    I worked at Lavastorm full-time

    Pros

    Work/Life balance was always at a high level.

    Cons

    Severe lack of skills/competency within the Senior Management team. Clueless on how to run projects and manage resources correctly. No recognition of effort and communication is minimal if at all. Has an 'in crowd' who do as they please and contribute to the failure of the companies growth. No investment in the UK, shame as the UK are the only ones who act in a professional manner and try to improve processes and the company in general. Small company - no ambition to bigger = fail.

    I worked at Lavastorm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None that I know of

    Cons

    I worked there for 3 years. During this time frame, we went through 2 CEO's, 3 CFO's and lost many EXCELLENT employees due to layoffs. Environment was toxic, nepotism took place and there was a constant feeling of doom looming overhead.

    I have been working at Lavastorm full-time

    Pros

    After an uncertain period and a lot of lay offs looks like it has all worked. Management has greatly improved over the last year. Working environment is very flexible. Bonus received last year was great.

    Cons

    401(k) match would be great.
