Pros

The product is loved by users all over the world. It is incredibly powerful, yet simple. The people there are really great - very caring.

Cons

The upper management on the tech side have a lot to be desired. They are incredibly smart, but have absolutely 0 people skills.

Advice to Management

You need to act more like a management team by helping and guiding people. Listen to what they have to say, even if you do not agree.

    Pros

    exciting technology, great, smart employees who are fun to work with. people work hard but can still have lives. good office space. they're going places.

    Cons

    this isn't the place to work if you want extravagant perks like facebook and google have. growing fast so some things aren't organized yet, but that will come with time. hopefully they develop some of the great people from within and allow ways to advance, but i'm not confident that will happen.

    Advice to Management

    talented people will leave if they can't advance.Morale suffers when people who look great on paper but don't get the product or the company get hired into important positions. substance over style. don't be stingy.

    Pros

    – Top industry talent. – Good pay. – Lots of interesting projects. – The company is experiencing tremendous growth.

    Cons

    – Fast growth may lead to restructuring. – There's also a lot of less interesting work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Really push the product to be everything it can be – I love using MongoDB, and it works well now, but everyone at the company knows there are many more improvements that need to be made. Also, the higher executives should probably engage more with employees on an everyday level – execs can often be seen moving throughout the office without knowing many of their employees names or even saying hello. As the company grows, it becomes less feasible to know most people, but it didn't even seem like there was much effort to personally connect with employees. A nitpick, no doubt, but worth mentioning nonetheless.
