    Pros

    Mostly the people, great community of friendly and passionate people. A lot of small startups have been acquired so the talent here is through the roof and it's never boring. No matter what your role, there's always room to explore and push yourself with room for internal growth both personally and professionally. Great salary!

    Cons

    Working with different timezones on a global scale can be challenging... but then again there's lots of travel involved so this doesn't really qualify as a con.

    Recently gone public, which limits some of the edginess of the company. Government decisions will have impact and the company continue to innovate quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the company faster!!! Great innovation which needs to be showcased more.

    Pros

    People are very professional, driven, but still friendly. The idea about the responsibilities I was given before I joined was accurate, and although it is a bigger challenge than I expected, I really like it here. All the people that I work with (and it's a lot!), are really helpful, even where I would not expect it really. The remuneration is good, benefits are wide, the working environment and culture is really nice.

    Cons

    Given the size of the company I think the organization structure could be simpler. Even after months I am discovering new people that I should take into account.
