    Pros

    The work environment is certainly fast-paced and often chaotic, but everyone manages to keep a level head and make logical, yet innovative decisions, even when under pressure. Most people are pretty young as is reflected in the culture of t-shirts, jeans, video games, and ripsticks. The food is awesome and definitely makes it easier to work longer hours and actually enjoy them. Working cross-functionally is not only accepted, but expected. You won't be confined to your own team, which is nice. Overall, it's definitely the best job I've had so far.

    Cons

    As a pretty young company, policies and best practices change quite often, which can be hard to follow at times. Other than that, there really aren't many cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep meetings when you schedule them because it's hard for everyone else to change their schedules last minute and a lot of time is wasted.
