    Pros

    Great Product with lots of growth potential. Cool SOMA office space for easy commute w/public transportation, free lunches

    Cons

    Highly political environment, little promotion opportunity unless you're boss quits or you're a favorite. Lots of lay-offs since they went private in December '12 and there was little information and transparency prior.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what to say here since they're now working for the Private Equity company that now owns them the company...
