    I have been working at Knewton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A LOT of talented, humble people working in one room (almost 100) - Strong entrepreneurial culture that rejects anything overly corporate or even traditional - Beautiful, huge office near Union Square (moved in summer 2012) - Vast responsibility and empowerment given to those who take bold steps - Powerful mix of proven technologies, open-source tools, and in-house special sauce - Big emphasis on individual accountability and transparency in all functions, which enables teams to make decisions openly and move quickly

    Cons

    Company sometimes has a tough time internally as a tech company in the education industry. Product development and sales cycles can be long due to the natural rhythm of the industry, which predictably causes internal friction.

    I have been working at Knewton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong, fun culture (table tennis, happy hours, stocked kitchen, unlimited vacation), great engineers, lots of communication between the tech and business sides. Devs are passionate about their work and craft, but not obsessed with fads or the hottest trends.

    Cons

    Eagerness to pack things onto the roadmap. Communication can be an issue (as usual for a quickly-growing team).
