Pros

1) everyone is insanely smart. so it's a great place to progress.
2) despite 1) people have no ego. no one is territorial. you don't like something and think you can do better? go at it.
3) the internal culture build around the "hack" directive is very strong, very motivational and makes me feel very comfortable
4) immense data to analyze
5) everyday a chance to make an impact

Cons

ok, so it's not in downtown san francisco. that's really because i have to say something here.

    Pros

    Lot of independence in choosing your projects, recognition for innovation, complex problems, daily code pushes to production, awesome peers.

    Cons

    Constant inflow into upper management chain from other companies, so harder to move up the ladder if you're not on a crucial project.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize engineering contributions in non-product areas for promotion as well.
