Pros

Friendly people. Smart engineers. Great office. Good location (near the SF design center). Free fitness club membership and public transit reimbursement. It's a well funded startup, so one person can still make a difference, but you don't have to worry if company will have problems making payroll.

Cons

It's a startup, so this is not a 9-to-5 job. No 401k matching contributions.
