Pros

Great Perks! Team collaboration, transparency and trust from management to manage your business.

Cons

It is all about the Metrics. On top of achieving above your metrics you need to complete additional high profile projects to get exceed expectations on your performance review. This means you do work ALL of the time even on your vacations!! Most folks feel the burn out since you have to do this quarter after quarter. Especially a tough environment when you have a family.

Advice to Management

You are doing a good job!! However, do ensure consistent quota setting across all teams doing similar work. Nothing is more demotivating than to run at 110mph and see another teammate doing similar work with less of a quota and performing at 50% of that speed, quarter after quarter.
