Pros

High responsibilities from day one. High powers from day one. The company lives up to its motto of move fast and don't be afraid.

Cons

Hard core environment, if you don't deal well with extra responsibility and require strong leadership instead of autonomy you probably won't have the best time

Advice to Management

Keep the hacker culture, beware process and corporate behavior. Always do the right thing for the world.
