    Pros

    Very motivated employees who are focusing on making positive changes.
    International presence makes the culture interesting and allows lots of learning.
    Very fast paced and in high growth mode.
    Fun environment and great people!

    Cons

    There is some inexperience in management, but I believe this is part of growing pains. The company has made HUGE strides over the last few years and continues to keep getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the employees and continue to focus on Talent Management.

    Trying hard to become a professional company but still hampered by immature, arrogant and autocratic Russian leadership

    Pros

    Positioned well within an explosive industry segment of cloud services brokerage, Good US sales org that is capitalizing on the hype with a sense that the house of cards may collapse

    Cons

    unprofessional management/leadership if its Russians you are reporting into; highly diluted stock structure so despite pre-IPO hype the options don't have much upside, lack of customer focus

    Doesn't Recommend
