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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at MongoDB full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time

    Pros

    Really cool technology that customers/users love.

    Staff is smart, hard working, and fun.

    Company is growing extremely fast so there are lots of opportunities for professional development.

    Office space is awesome (adjustable height desks!!) and there are great perks (free bootcamp & yoga classes, free lunch 2x/week, annual all company meeting, social events like trivia night).

    Cons

    Fast growth so be prepared for constant change.

    There are definitely opportunities for advancement but there isn't a clear path - you have to seek it out yourself.

    There is so much to do - it can be hard to know when to stop!
