    Pros

    Equity opportunity in well funded pre-IPO co. Could be a game changer on the web if vision is executed. Engineer talent is strong. CEO has a big ego drive and wants to win. Have some very strong engineering leaders who joined in the past year which is good to see.

    Cons

    less a downside more of a challenge, execution is hard.

    Advice to Management

    share knowledge and continually remind those deeper in the co of the big picture vision. it is easy for a developer cranking code to get lost in the day to day and they need to see the big picture to stay motivated. also, lead more.

    Pros

    Obviously, it is a pre-IPO company with a a head start on a vision of greatness. If executed properly, the potential for the platform is astronomical. Frankly, it is cool to be in on something game changing for potentially commerce as a whole, and be a part of building that greatness.

    Cons

    Some of what is built and marketed appears to be done within a bubble. Rather than seek assistance or even feedback from power users and support staff who use the product and hear feedback from actual customers, they rely on the clairvoyance and clinical user studies. With a bit of communication, there are a number of projects that could have been done better the first time rather than redone to fix what could have been avoided. On the flip side, it has been my observation that this process was prevalent at my previous employers as well.

    Also, remember, this is a PRIVATELY funded venture, and with private funding comes risks. Rather than be caught unaware, senior management was proactive in reducing expenses (translation: firing people) to position the company for success in a down economy. Realistically, going back for more funds in this market would be extremely expensive or even impossible, so they made cuts quickly to position properly. I don't fault them for that.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and institutionalize the leveraging of internal experience in addition to the standard mantras of justification to fix things before they are built and avoid wasted effort.
