    Pros

    Lots of freedom to choose what you want to work on. Also, the company does its best to ensure you have everything you need to do your job really well. And bunch of very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much ambiguity. if you are someone that expects to be told what to work on and what needs to be done, this ain't the place for you.

    Pros

    My coworkers are ridiculously smart and competent. Every day I learn something new from one of them. We move fast and think about having impact on the world. Our site is used by a billion people. The company cares about its employees' quality of life; we have excellent food, shuttles to/from San Francisco, a culture that eschews meetings, great ergonomics, onsite medical care, and a gym. New engineers go through "bootcamp," which exposes you to all aspects of the codebase in a friendly environment where you're allowed to ask n00bish questions and bond with other new engineers.

    Cons

    It's difficult to come up with meaningful downsides to working here. We move very fast, so I don't always have time to be a perfectionist (but in general that's a good thing). Our codebase is huge and it can be difficult to find documentation.
