Pros

good pay & benefits
empowers employees
smart coworkers

Cons

Hard work and long hours, not great work/life balance

Advice to Management

More levels so there are more smaller promotions -- per Tony Hsieh in the All Hands meeting, continuous small promotions help to make people happy.

    Pros

    free crap from vendors
    hush $/severence when they let you go.

    Cons

    no work/life balance
    24/7 blackberry - on call 365.
    management is completely incompetent
    HR is not there to help employees - only to keep management from getting sued. do not go to HR for any reason including anything legal, best way to get yourself fired.

    Advice to Management

    i would say get a grip on the turnover, but since people will still want to come work for you, you have no reason to change anything.

    Pros

    Exciting. If you have the right team, it can be a very pleasant place to work in. Unlike others, I find the operations burden refreshing (I come from working as a federal government contractor). On call pages are often opportunities to learn thing, and I like the investigation

    Cons

    Sometimes I spend too much time at the office. Parking spaces are limited. If you have a bad manager, life can be ... difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Too early for me to have a real opinion yet
