    - Integrated Product, Engineering and UX teams
    - Focus is on the user and improving product
    - Incredibly sophisticated software development practices and agility
    - Transparency of the organization
    - Really smart leadership team
    - Very comprehensive benefits & perks
    - Strong education program

    Cons

    - Limited upside prospects unless you're (a) personally critical to the business and (b) threatening to leave for another company
    - HR process for internal mobility isn't working well
    - Opaque resource allocation process

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to director recruitment. Of all the management levels, it is the one where I've observed the most variation in quality.
