    Pros

    It's a tad different than a "bank". There aren't impossible expectations here. Even better, it's easy to make friends here. The happy hours are fun and people are willing to hang out after work. It's not the same 'cold professionalism' you'd see at other places. You can confide in people. Management is good for the most part. They seem to avoid, at all costs, pushing the tenseness of growth/sturcturation on their employees. This is not a bad thing. They are functionally your advocates. It's a good working environment for people with cool demeanors. Regardless, if you work hard you will see growth. The company affords many opportunities, you just need to be patient.

    Cons

    Sometimes things aren't too clear, but that comes with any start-up. There are growing pains and formal processes are being established. Changes can be a bit mystic for many.

    Advice to Management

    Be synergistic with your goals and your values. Try to find medians between the old and the new. It's not just about maintaining happy hours-- people still think it is a start-up. It gives value to us to think that we are helping to create something new. Also be clear about opportunities. Sometimes people don't know about them and they are left to decode the available options for them in their next step. Sometimes this can be very frustrating, particularly for the direct.

    Pros

    Visionary leadership, really smart executive team, and a willingness to try new ideas makes this an awesome place to work. The culture is fun and energetic, they pay 100% of medical, have free gym membership, pay well, and plenty of opportunity to make contribution and be visible. The business model is disrupting an old existing business with technology, which provides a worthwhile calling as well.

    Cons

    This is a great place to work, having a hard time coming up with anything negative to say. Ideally we would have free lunch and dinner, but the snacks are high quality.

    Advice to Management

    Keep small company culture as you continue to grow.
