    I have been working at Tumblr full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing culture, very flexible with work/life stuff, catered food, great perks, not at all overly micromanaged

    Cons

    Hard to say much here, honestly. It seems like there might be some friction trying to "climb the ladder," but probably no more than any other company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keepin' on, because you guys are doing a fantastic job.

    Pros

    Tumblr is a great company to work for. Passionate employees, exciting projects, great work environment and a good work-life balance. A good compromise between big company benefits and small company passion. Working on a popular website is always a great bonus, and Tumblr is not only popular, it's fun and creative. The offices are growing and the company is spending a lot of time and resources making the new spaces comfortable.

    Cons

    Career path is an issue for a lot of people. The company is growing fast and trying to maintain the start-up vibe is not always possible.

    I have been working at Tumblr full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, great coworkers, really fun environment with lots of office events. Beyond that, it's a great place to develop your career. With small teams, you get the chance to work on things you wouldn't get to do at bigger more established companies. If you're someone who wants to make a difference and grow personally, it's a great environment.

    Cons

    Definitely has growing pains. Systems and processes aren't the best, but it's understandable given how fast the staff has increased and business has grown.
