Pros

I had the privilege of working at this company as an intern a few times. Of all the internships I've had, this company's culture best aligns with my own. The teams tend to be small, the work environment really feels like home. The food is ok, but I mainly ate at the salad bar. I love that as an engineer, I'm not restricted in the type of equipment I get, and that I can get whatever I need to improve myself.

Cons

This isn't the best place, if you want to have an excellent work life balance, since it's really easy to just stay at work all the time.

Advice to Management

Never lose that sense of small company feel just to have more control or order.

    Pros

    the food is incredible, the people are bright and fun, there's opportunity to effect millions of people with what you create

    Cons

    move fast break things may mean that the project you're working on will not work out. so while they execute things quickly they also kill things off quickly. also that commute is rough if you live in the city.

    Advice to Management

    spend more time with your employees

    Pros

    Smart people, especially many with PhDs and other forms of strong academic performance.

    Cons

    Product Managers treat analytics as ad hoc data pullers. Data and development environment actively hinders cross analyst information and expertise sharing.

    Advice to Management

    Clarify job roles differences between data science, analytics and business intelligence. Incorporate standardization and peer review principles of software engineering into analytics workflows.
