Pros

Great people, cool work, fun environment

Cons

HR is not as transparent as they say and switching between roles and getting promoted is not as easy as they claim.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be upfront with the process instead of always making things sound great.

    Pros

    Insanely smart people everywhere (not just eng/prod). Looking for game changing ways to approach every problem. The food and shuttles are great benefits. You can end up working a lot but it's generally because you want to, not because you have to.

    Cons

    Has lost the start-up culture. It's big, it's political and it's expected. It's a gigantic company and compared to overall revenues and growth the company has managed to stay as "un political" as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
