Pros

Small, autonomous teams work closely with customers to release new features rapidly. Sustainable pace with excellent work/life balance. Great support for individuals and teams. Focus on continual improvement. Good opportunities for career growth as the company grows, both on technical and leadership tracks.

Cons

Company is growing rapidly, so there are constantly new people to bring up to speed. The number of paid holidays is a bit low. It is challenging to keep code quality high while constantly adding new people and producing such a high volume of new products and features.

Advice to Management

Continue the sustainable balance of growth vs profits. Continue to invest heavily in engineering.

    Pros

    It tries to keep every one happy by snacks and t-shirts.

    Cons

    Old technologies, not good for personal development. Slow growth. It took 7 years to be barly profitable. Poor health insurance, no 401k, no bonus. Workplace politics. Talented engineers are not really promoted to important postions. The managers are not good at techniques and do not really pay attention to the growth of the teams. But they are really good at keep their postions in the company.
