    Pros

    The free food is good.

    Cons

    The working hours are long. The pay is not worth all the time spent at work. Management is not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micromanagement and a better review process would be great. Also, consider hiring more people. There's enough money to go around...

    Pros

    Talent people, happy environment, good food

    Cons

    Start to act like a big company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it this way. Grow team with adoption of company culture. Some buildings in main campus may need to improve working conditions.
