    I worked at Pinterest as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pinterest has hired a lot of very talented, passionate people. Everyone in the company seems excited about their work, and the direction the company is going in. The majority of the early engineers are still around, which is think is fairly telling.

    There's also plenty of flexibility when it comes to projects. If you can pitch the idea, you can build it. Stuff still happens fast.

    The perks are fantastic - I ended up eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the office fairly often, since the food is either catered every day or prepared onsite. There are also frequent team "off-sites", where people take a day off with their team to go do something, like go-cart racing, rock climbing etc.

    Cons

    Pinterest is in an interesting period of growth right now. The point where everyone in the company knows each other is beginning to fade, so if you're looking for small company it might be worthwhile to consider other places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've talked to several people at the company about the future organizational structure, etc. There's this idea about being able to quickly form a team from people across the company for a given project. I think that can be incredibly valuable - different sections of the company operating like a bunch of small startups.
