Pros

-very good salary
-fast growing company
-mostly interesting projects to work on
-if you are not in HQ, you still get to travel to Seattle every once in a while
-very smart people working there.

Cons

-lots of work may cause poor work/life balance. This didn't apply to me as I was an intern, but a lot of the times it was clear my team was working way more than I was

    Pros

    There's a reason the "work hard" part of this company's tag line is first... You're going to work hard. But if you love what you do and have a passion for the innovative, always-pushing-forward culture, this could be a good fit.

    Cons

    Work life balance does not exist. At all.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create, innovate and change the world without burning your best and brightest out!

    Pros

    Work on real problems in real time
    Work with very intelligent people
    Very good pay

    Cons

    Some have bad experiences with work-life balance. I did not have any problems with this, working 7-8 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    The frugality can scare people away at times, but it seems this is becoming more lax.
