    Pros

    Great products, awesome team. Real smart people.
    Products have gigantic user base, very rewarding to see your work being used by so many people

    Cons

    Need to be more agile. Use existing tools instead of trying to build everything, more efficient that way. Concentrate on software development processes/documentation also.
