    Pros

    -I see my experience here as a legitimately exciting opportunity to work at a start-up that really has a chance. The company has great product market fit, is currently scaling up to meet their growing demand, developing new products (exciting products) and there are lots of opportunity to see how it's done by leaders who know what they are doing.
    -The cultural is something that leadership takes very seriously. It leads to actions and unlike alot of places you will work, it's more than just snacks and goofing around. There is an atmosphere of fun, but it also translates into professional development and fulfillment.
    -As the company is scaling, we are able to bring in some really talented folks. The standards for important hires are really high and it's exciting to see that payoff.
    -I love my coworkers. There are some seriously talented people here. That really adds alot and during times of high work loads, you always have support.

    Cons

    I wrote more here, but there really is more good than bad at this company.

    -As some folks have mentioned the pay is a bit of an issue. I can easily make more money in a similar stage start-up, and significantly more money in a larger company. However, I am committed for the moment, but this is becoming more of an issue for myself and others. I do think this will likely be addressed as there have been some issues with recruitment where this has been cited as the reason a candidate has declined. Management has thus far impressed me by responding to similar company wide grumblings and benefits are improving as we grow.
    -I have a long commute and this is a major downer for me, although carpooling has helped. The truth is, alot of start-ups are equally emphatic about not allowing people to work from home. It does make a difference to have everyone in the office. But that doesn't take away from the fact that it's just really hard. I think this is something they need to think more about, especially because all jobs can require long hours, especially during the fall.
    -Scaling is going slowly. They do recognize that the leaders who achieved market traction don't necessarily have the skills required to scale-up so they are bringing in some key leaders, but so far they have been very slow to make decisions pertaining to scaling. Lots of diligence, but we need to be moving faster and not worry about making a mistake.

    Advice to Management

    -Give a bump in pay.
    -Especially if you don't do the above, more needs to be in place to ensure that employees are getting a valuable experience. Especially for your smart and talented employees. There are tons of compelling problems to work on but management needs to be good enough to turn these into career development opportunities, even if the day to day work doesn't make this convenient.
    -Make filling leadership roles a major priority and make decisions faster. Mistakes are inevitable so delaying the decisions is really just taking away the you will have to iterate.
