    Pros

    A bureaucracy-free environment that allows you to simply get work done
    Strong management with strong technical background all the way to the top
    Very metric-driven engineering team
    The ability to prioritize tasks based on what you think is important
    A remarkably well defined review process that encourages personal development in different areas
    Company policy to leave unnecessary meetings early or skip them entirely

    Cons

    Some politics and cliques
    Some user-facing projects have too many product managers
    Some late nights when supporting new code pushes
    Fighting fires can become a full time job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stop being open and transparent
    Daytime hackathons to encourage more participation for engineers with family commitment
    Improve recruiting's ability to filter candidates so engineering interviews have lower reject rate
