Pros

Everyone there has an opportunity to make an impact. Company moves very fast and prides itself on running lean. This means autonomy and opportunity for almost every employee.

Cons

Intense environment is not for everyone. Mission driven company means many decisions are made based on relevance back to product and mission.

Advice to Management

Brag a little more: Be more active in publicly explaining your business model. You can talk publicly about how well you're doing while at the same time remaining coy and humble.

Avoid Bureaucracy and Nepotism: Remember to move fast and don't let your size get in the way, it started to happen a little bit. And Don't promote people based on one person's personal goal (i.e. Sheryl's mission to help women) - it's like internet nepotism.

    Pros

    You're treated like a human being. You're well-fed. The corporate structure is designed so you can float to where you think you can do the best work with minimal hassle. Acquiring needed equipment is low friction. Above all, we believe in what we're doing.

    Cons

    Base salary is a little below comparable companies. Young employee base can sometimes lack tact or manners. High density office plan presents parking issues.

    Advice to Management

    Scaling to tens of thousands of employees is the biggest threat to the company. Keep everyone focused and keep teams small and nimble.

  2. Fun, challenging and rewarding

    Pros

    Being surrounded by great minds who always strive for to better themselves
    Flexibility and Freedom to fix/work on the things you want to work on.
    Free food doesn't hurt either - and it is GOOD food.

    Cons

    my only real complaint is that you sometimes reviewed solely based on the impact your work has rather than the quality.

    Advice to Management
