    Pros

    Pinterest is a great product. I believe it will change people's life. That's why I am still working here.

    Cons

    The board kept raising fund for too many times. Many employees are frustrated because their shares were diluted severely in the last few rounds of fundraising. The cost to exercise options got higher too.............

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

    Pros

    The people here are smart, passionate, and nice. The culture is collaborative and there are tons of possibilities for impact, learning, and growth. The leadership team recognizes the value of a strong culture and have significantly invested in our people, particularly compared to other companies at our stage.

    Cons

    Sometimes we could move faster than we do. Given the collaborative culture, there's a balance to strike between discussion and debate and decision and action. We can improve in this area, though I think that progress is already underway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing in people. Push decision making down and give people the freedom to run.
