Pros

Brilliant people, fast-moving and industry-changing products, top-level salary vs. peers, will let you take initiative early on, pure meritocracy

Cons

slow promotions (intentionally designed that way), aggressive culture, long hours for a tech company, zero perks (not even a subsidized lunch)

Advice to Management

Frugality is awesome, but at times it is a bit too much (e.g., subsidize the cafeteria...)

    Pros

    Good people to work with and technical support for you to get your job done.

    Cons

    They lack a fleshed out (informal) test process which takes some getting used to and maybe irritating to some people.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between teams and provide more requirements documentation.

  2. Great work environment
