    Pros

    There are large scale computer science problems to solve and lots of intelligent people to solve them with.

    Cons

    The ship it now and fix it later culture doesn't help the on call burden.

    Pros

    - True agile development
    - Great option as a first company. Work with some of smartest people you can find.
    - No team hierarchy. Everyone is heard and their opinions are valued.

    Cons

    - Expectation to deliver in a small time frame leading to hacky solutions rather than long term maintainable solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the developers. They may not know about the monetizing part but they know what the customers want.
