Pros

Amazing experience, very competitive salary, great office space cutting edge technologies.
If you like fast moving environment and challenging task then this is a place for you. Company treats employees like adults

Cons

Sometimes environment is moving too fast. Unlimited vacation policy does not work in few cases. Be ready to get support calls in the middle of the night.

    Pros

    Lunch, brand that people are aware of.

    Cons

    Management overall is quite bad. Most people get promoted to the role based on seniority, not on actual ability to lead and mentor others.

  2. Over matrixed under thought out

    Pros

    Fast paced, energetic place to work. The compensation was great, and the tools at our disposal were more than adequate to build and retain strong teams.

    Cons

    To much reliance on matrix and not enough on individuality that empowers employees to do great things. While we had great tools, were were not given the autonomy to use them effectively. Good people had to be let go for arbitrary reasons, and other that should move on are kept.

    Advice to Management

    Reward creativity, relax a wee bit, and never ever hire more people than you really need. Doing so creates problems down the road that are not good for anyone.
