Pros

Generous, good people that work hard, expect much but are also kind.
Leader in a market that is transforming how data is managed.
Great story behind the company. Makes it easy to explain what we do, and why.
Salary and benefits are solid, though not overwhelmingly so.
Highly ambitious company vision.

Cons

Far enough along that the stock grants are not stratospheric. (Still, assuming the company matches its ambition, any amount of stock is worthwhile here.)
Some areas of the company stronger than others in terms of personnel, though all areas are constantly upgrading.

Advice to Management

Geeky DNA sometimes diluted by salesy next generation. Needs to keep to its engineering roots/focus.
Hiring from within has gotten better, and needs to keep getting better.

    Pros

    Fantastic facilities, bright and fun atmosphere, really nice HR people, super-smart leaders, amazing salary/perks (even by Startup standards) - What I really like is the transparency, I've never worked anywhere where the CEO pretty much tells everyone everything that's happening. High trust environment.

    Cons

    Being a fast growing company means frequent changes and occasional left turns. Probably not ideal if you're slow to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    Don't you go changing.... ;)
