I have been working at foursquarePros
+ Very talented team, engineers and non-engineers alike.
+ Fast-moving: deploys 4x a week, frequent releases of new features, emphasis on launching.
+ Really interesting data.
+ Great social environment: employees genuinely like one another, socialize frequently.
+ Regular travel to NY office.
+ Lots of goodwill from users.
+ Big monetization opportunity.
+ Good chance of being the next major, independent consumer tech company (after Google, FB, Twitter).Cons
+ Perks are decent but not as good as at other tech companies.
+ LBS space still being invented, so no succinct mission statement yet. Also means that user growth has to be hard-earned through constant improvement. Can't just sit back and count signups. On the plus side- users we work hard to earn are users we're more likely to keep.
+ Not as trendy as other startups. The backlash and snark have already begun.Advice to ManagementAdvice
+ Keep the high hiring bar on both ICs and management, don't succumb to the temptation to grow quickly at the expense of quality.
+Keep articulating the vision, internally and externally, as value proposition of LBS space is not always clear outside the tech industry early-adopter crowd.Recommends
