I have been working at MongoDB full-time (more than an year)

Pros

What I'm doing actually matters. What the company is doing actually matters. And it's nice to work at a company where your users love the product.

Cons

Given how fast-growing we are, things are always in motion. You have to have a certain tolerance for ambiguity, a willingness to adapt, and the desire to roll up your sleeves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you help the young employees grow with the company.

    Pros

    Flexible and hard working people. Smart and self aware. Know where they need to improve and have a plan. Great staff that cares a lot and is ambitious but not political.

    Cons

    This isn't an office 9-5 mail in job. This is a pro to me but may be a con for those not looking to put the effort in.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
