    Pros

    Smart people you can admire and respect, strong business model, challenging scale issues that provide ample opportunities for creative problem solving, fast-paced environment. This likely results from the stringent hiring processes (100 phone screens to 1 offer)

    Cons

    long hours, mild politics, management is inexperienced - typical for a company growing from a startup mode towards a more mature company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring stronger discipline to effectively channel employee creativity and problem solving skills on to the highest priority projects

    Pros

    Fast growing, adaptive and supportive environment. Lots of incredibly smart, motivated and fun people. The company cares about its employees and that is overwhelmingly evident by how they treat them, the awesome things they do for them and how everyone interacts.

    Cons

    Honestly I'm not sure I could name any yet. I suspect the Software Engineers work long hours, but I'm pretty sure they do it from love and enjoyment rather than a requirement by anyone. There has to be some downside, but I can't think of any. Sorry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It works really well in my opinion.
