Pros

Even though CK is hardly a startup, a lot of care is put into keeping that startup vibe. There's the typical tech perks: well stocked kitchen with snacks, food, and beer; monthly happy hours; weekly social events; casual dress; pets at work; and video games everywhere.

The CEO is also very transparent and maintains an open door policy; you can have dinner with him at one of our weekly events and also "grill" him with questions at his quarterly meetings he does with the entire company. He takes a lot of care in providing us with the same information and briefings he gives to his senior staff and investors.

Cons

People can seem a bit stand-offish because almost everyone has their headphones on or have a tendency to hang out only with their team. Much of the company is engineers (it's tech) so their "nerdy" personalities are often favored, eg. types of events we do, etc.

The office space is also getting a bit cramped!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As we're rapidly expanding with many new hires, take some care into maintaining that startup vibe with the fun events and transparency. Also think about getting another floor in the office building or a new space!
