    Pros

    Favorite thing is the employees -- they're great. Love working with them everyday.
    Lots of technical challenges. As a developer there's lots of interesting challenging stuff to do.
    Company is growing really fast but still feels like a small company.
    Like the location right next to BART station makes commuting easier.
    Management is pretty good and very technical unlike other employers.

    Cons

    My biggest complaint is the company is growing fast but management hasn't adjusted completely to it. Growing pains. Need better management.
    Compared to other companies they need to offer better benefits package like employer contribution to 401K, etc.
    Salary and stock option are so-so compared with other companies. Wish they had offered more but I like the location in downtown Oakland.

    Growing pains while growing

    Pros

    -it's a supportive group of people, including management
    -business is doing well and growth should continue despite the downturn in the economy
    -flexible schedule and work environment

    Cons

    - with growth comes growing pains...the efforts to hire more people should have happened yesterday.
    - the training process is typical of a start up. you should be self motivated and willing to teach yourself
    - the review process is an abstract puzzle with no clear guidelines and constant re-definition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review process needs to be defined
    be more willing to pay for good people.
    extremely frugal, which is both good and bad. Need to pinch those pennies, but need to know when to shell out a few dollars.
