I have been working at Atlassian full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Awesome office space, amazing company culture (openness, willingness to try new things, always improving on processes and procedures, supportive, collaborative), great benefits, good career opportunities if you do good work, employees' freedom to give their opinion on all aspects of the business, very little micro managing, travel opportunities to other office in Sydney and Amsterdam, good kitchen luncheon food as well as snacks, fruit, drinks, staff are very social in and outside the office, people really care about their work and very few slackers if any, staff are highly passionate about their work and the company culture, everyone is self-motivated and self-managed, no secrets, ask someone what they are working on and they'll gladly tell you

Cons

New management has a more pessimistic view of employees than management of the earlier days.

    I worked at Atlassian full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great transparent culture.
    - Good team leaders and managers
    - Great perks for developers (e.g ShipIt days).

    Cons

    - Compensation is 'ok', but nothing extremely competitive (the equity component is good though).
    - Uninspiring corporate HR
    - Sometimes people or teams are asked to drop current work and start working on things with 'higher priority'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now, in 2014, Atlassian is a great company. Only comment I would make is to stop doing what every other company is doing. Atlassian used to have its own unique culture. Management and HR experimented with new things. But in the past year it seems that everything that made us special has been replaced by practices that are uninspiring and/or widely known to be bad for companies (e.g. performance distribution curves etc).
