I have been working at AnchorFree full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Stellar teams working on big challenges. Huge growth [250K new user/day]. Dynamic leadership Who doesn't want to work for a company that is both solving real-world challenges [censorship, data compression, privacy] as well as being significantly profitable?

Cons

Company moves way too fast for some mediocre employees [and little tolerance for unexceptional talent and less than 110% effort]. Don't apply to this company if you can't hack it.

Advice to Management

Onward. Faster. Farther.
