Pros

Great product with a solid customer base.
Intelligent employees.
Rapidly growing company which is rare in this day and age.
Relaxed atmosphere and fun work environment (casual dress, flexible hours)
Free lunch Thursdays - they provide free lunches for their employees every Thursday! Plus the kitchens are always stocked with sodas, pretzels and healthy snack options.
Work from home flexibility.
Good benefits.
Plenty of vacation and personal days.

Cons

There are 3 US offices (Seattle, SF and Columbia) and there isn't that much face-to-face interaction between them.
Only observe 7 holidays a year (not all of the government holidays).
