    Inspiration is Endless

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe people I work with are intelligent, they are visionaries, hard-working and passionate. They inspire me and help me grow every single day. The opportunities for impact are endless and I feel empowered. Additionally, the company is open minded and encouraging of new ideas. Failure is not frowned upon because often you must fail before you can succeed.

    ConsResources are still scare so you have to be scrappy. That being said I really like the challenge. It encourages innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay close to your teams, because it makes the world of difference.

    I'm doing the best work of my career at the best place I've ever worked surrounded by very talented people.

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe company actually took time to create a set of meaningful core values that you can apply to your daily work. They are not things like, "Honesty, Integrity, and Passion." They are well thought out and contribute to making it a better place to work.

    ConsI honestly don't have any cons to mention at the moment.

    Internship

    Intern (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat working environment - relaxed, well paced, and great perks like free food and free shuttle. Interns are treated very much like full time employees, and are generally given full-time caliber work.

    ConsDepending on the team it can be frustrating, with blockers being slow to resolve, but they do a good job of giving interns projects that are shielded from these things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIntern hosts could be chosen slightly better.

    Great place to work!

    Human Resources (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsOutstanding positive energy - passionate employees, working on things that matter. Employee benefits package is great (free medical benefits, three free meals a day at HQ, 401K and stock purchase plans, to name a few). Great executive leadership.

    ConsPush for open and fearless communication, but can be passive at times. Employees find it hard to manage work/life balance, but likely due to passion for the product.

    ProsReady for IPO means good benefit + various projects + strong will for growth.
    People are awesome: we really care about each other.
    Fascinating food!

    ConsReally not much cons I can think of. If there is one, it should be "I really want a laptop larger than 13 inches".
    Oh, even better if we have more positions for working standing up.
