    I have been working at Braintree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Office Culture
    Work/Life Balance
    Great Benefits (Yearly Bonus and awesome time off policy)
    Smart Co-workers and hardworking management
    Catered Lunch (daily)
    Free Breakfast, Coffee and Snacks

    Cons

    The lounge lacks a Pool Table, and there aren't enough tables in the lunch room.

    Seriously though - there isn't much to complain about. The only thing to mention is that Braintree is growing rapidly and with that comes a few growing pains.

    Pros

    The people make the company. Everyone is accountable for their work and there's always someone willing to help out. The pay and benefits are great and the culture is the best I've ever seen in a company. They actually believe in it. There's nothing you can't take on here.

    Cons

    This sort of environment isn't built for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep asking us about our thoughts on the progress of the company. I know it makes me feel like my voice is heard.

    I have been working at Braintree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like that there's no vacation policy and there's a great work/life balance. It's a very fun and social atmosphere. Everything moves at a very fast pace, so there's never a dull moment. Braintree tends to attract great people, so co-workers are typically a pleasure.

    Cons

    Braintree has some growing pains due to its explosive growth. Developers are treated better than other employees, which can be frustrating. Company typically doesn't promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees equally. See the value in all employees, rather than catering to a few selected all-star employees.

    I have been working at Braintree

    Pros

    There is ample opportunity to create and work with really smart people - all in a very successful company. Additionally, because of the somewhat flat hierarchy, there is an immense sense of ownership over work product.

    Cons

    As with any start up, things change constantly, and space is outgrown very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the dialogue with employees, promote constant feedback.
