    I worked at GrubHub full-time

    Pros

    The awesome people - who are moving on
    The start-up culture - RIP
    The very cool platform and product - it is still a great service

    Cons

    Merger - Communication from the top down, that was once very informative and personal, became so generic and then pretty much stopped altogether. After the merger many in senior management were so worried about their position the creativity and free trade of ideas was over. You would be told one thing well knowing that a few months later the exact opposite would be going into effect. The culture has changed and not for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about your own job security and jockeying for position. Stop continuing to add hurdles to the exact things that have made GH so successful. There is a lot more a stake now but how did it get so far away from what got us to were we are today? Lastly, just be honest and transparent.
