Pros

When you are noticed, there is a lot of upward mobility. The upper echelons are covered with homegrown talent. The company appears to be on the right track with the new CEO, though he is fighting some battles to make his direction known. Employees really seem to care about each other. Work life can be rewarding with the right manager. Company is well positioned to take on the market.

Cons

People are territorial in places. There are leaders who seem completely separated from business reality at times. Strong dichotomy between founding principles and desire for growth - need a clearly articulated corporate mission beyond the "Connect everything, empower everyone".

Advice to Management

Make a definitive statement about what is important to the company to grow to 10B. Cut some dead weight, particularly in some leadership roles.

    Pros

    + #2 in the Networking Field leaves room for growth (Apple vs MS)
    + Business is expanding into new markets!
    + Management support of continued employee education
    + Professional non-micromanging environment
    + Plenty of other bright like minded people
    + Espresso machines in the break rooms.

    Cons

    - No real after work community (most people have families)
    - Holiday parties suck (see above)
    - No issues related to work, just wish the after work things were better.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you need to do to keep us growing. But remember the things that brought us to this point creativity, dedication and a startup spirit.
