Pros

Awesome team of intelligent and innovative individuals. Great opportunity to make a huge impact on the industry. One of the few startups that are doing well which will get you a lot of recognition. Good work/life balance with a lot of flexibility and autonomy.

Cons

MongoDB is experiencing some growing pains right now with a lot of bureaucratic policies being put in place partially due to new execs. It's normal to have more structure as the team gets bigger but the way in which it is implemented could be handled a bit better. Fast pace growth but sometimes culture fit is sacrificed in the process. Healthy compensation packages for newcomers but, no incentives are given to existing employees who have been with the company. New managers also needs more training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company culture is very critical at this stage so it's important to evaluate newcomers against existing company values. It's one thing to attract strong talent, it's another thing to be able to keep them and I'm not sure if MongoDB is focusing on that. New managers desperately need more training.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, friendly people, lot's of innovative projects being worked on. In terms of management, if things are not working they are willing to listen to better options.

    Cons

    Too many bosses, too many different initiatives. They need to fix one thing at a time, comission structure could be more attainable/clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alignment of sales and marketing is key. Need to figure a way to not have sales under 5 different groups it, will make life a lot easier.
