    Pros

    You get to work on multiple areas. You will never get bored.

    Cons

    During crunch time, you are expected to work long and response to email late at night. No one tells to do so, but the atmosphere leads you to.

    Advice to Management

    Should support engineers to take courses at nearby colleges for personal development.

    Pros

    You work with the best talent in Silicon Valley. Catered food every night and cool hands on end product like Gopro.

    Cons

    Hard work. Start up environment. Stock based compensation in a down market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the salary wages rising. The longer the wait for IPO the more stock that is vested and the less incentive stocks become.
