Pros

Terrific startup in a high growth mode -- plenty of open positions in all departments. Unique and patented technology that's highly differentiated from the competition's. Amazingly bright developers who continuously innovate. Very relaxed work environment -- it's fun to be at the headquarters office.

Cons

Young startup without fully fleshed processes, so people have to step up and take initiative. Small office space that divides employees into two separate suites on different floors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on execution and on driving growth.

    Pros

    Well defined career progression paths, great engineering standards and a hard working but fun culture. A huge amount of engineering going on across a really exciting product set. A rather exciting place to be - they seem to be committed to maintaining a start up culture whilst growing quickly..

    Cons

    A number of remote staff means sometimes late calls and meetings due to timezone differences. Some decisions can take a while to push through. Benefit packages could be slightly more enticing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefit packages could be slightly more enticing.

    Pros

    It's up to you. You can challenge yourself, or bore yourself, be laid back or be at the line of attack. There are superstars within the company, and there are those that are here for a day job. But, here is what I think:

    You'll love showing up to work. You'll have the best possible setup ( the best Macbook Retina Pro, with two 27" beasts on your desk ). You'll have a lot of product ownership, and fun. You'll be encouraged to have work, life balance. You'll not be micro managed. You'll have a say in the direction of the product. You'll get to couch with the CEO and watch Apple's keynote. And, wait for it: you'll get to work from home when you want.

    Cons

    With only a few products, there isn't a lot of varied opportunities within the company. Being a startup, and following the 'make it work, make it better' principle, there is a lot that can be done with code quality. Being a company building an enterprise product, how neat/beautiful the product looks is not a primary concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about employee benefits, and team outings. Think more about product quality. Think more about company culture and suitable workspace decoration.
