Pros

Interesting projects, dynamic growth, and tremendous opportunities for personal long term career goals. Very talented staff with experience and skills to make it happen. Strong management team, with open communication style to keep everyone on the same page. A balance of hard work and play as a team.

Cons

A fast growing company is always a challenge for enough time in the day and the resources required to get things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing the things you are doing and do more of it.

    Pros

    HUGE growth which means lots of potential to move up. Pay is good, stock isn't what it used to be but this is a job where you can network for the rest of your career!

    Cons

    Institutional inconsistencies mean promotion processes aren't consistent and can be infuriating. Silicon Valley mentality of "work comes first" and hard to justify normal hours (ie check your email at 10pm before going to bed or you'll answer in the morning)

    Pros

    Smart, motivated co-workers who take pride in their work and in the product. Company invests in headcount and equipment and in keeping the employees happy. Bleeding edge tech that competitors are still trying to catch up to. Perks are nice, but are icing on the cake. Environment, teammates, and belief in the product are what matter most.

    Cons

    Growing pains as stated above. Company is shedding the vestiges of it's pre-IPO startup days but is still not there in terms of having mature processes and documentation where it needs to. Long hours and high work output are expected of you. This is no place for slackers or those who want to coast (this of course could belong in Pros. Facilities are crowded due to the explosive growth, but they are planning on ameliorating this shortly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep keeping employees in the loop on what is going on with the company. Transparency is always golden. Knowing what the short-term and long-term roadmaps are, give us something to shoot for.
