    Pros

    CEO has a vision about the company future. He is doing a good job there and the company has been growing fast past a few years. There are a lot good and very profession people: marketing, sales, customer success and engineering. There is a lot of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    New CTO came last year and made a lot of questionable decisions. As result very professional engineers (knowledge holders) left the company. Looks like CTO has no idea how to develop Software SaS products. Also he doesn't listen experts who have spent many years in the industry. The company will lose engineering power very soon that was built last 6-7 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop and review the damage that has been done last year on engineering side. Soon it can be late to do anything except building of engineering team from scratch.

    Fast-paced and tough at times - but overall a solid job

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with bleeding-edge technology, lots of opportunity to find your niche and contribute.

    Cons

    Bleeding-edge technology can be tough at times. Due to growth, some teams seem to be adding people 'just because' rather than evaluating the pros and cons of adding additional members. There is a TON of work to do over the next couple years - if you want to just do the same thing and not venture outside of your comfort zone, be careful about the team and/or project you get involved with. (not really a 'Con', but important to know)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to grow too fast. Also remember than more bodies do not equal more productivity.
