Pros

Killer, Cool company to work for.

Cons

Killer, cool company to work for - from the outside. Inside, it's an incoherent mess of angst, careful selection of what you say, and top down elite governance.

Advice to Management

If you are a master in politics, this is your place to shine.

    Cons

    It's more like a business company compared to other giants like Google or Facebook.
