Pros

Fairly small company. Big problems! There are a large amount of data waiting to be processed and discovered.

Cons

The company is growing super fast that sometimes I don't know what the organizational structure of the company looks like.

    Pros

    Whenever I hear Ben speak, I am amazed at his ability to inspire me and have a great sense of satisfaction working at the company.

    Cons

    Growing pains. But I am learning a lot and count my blessings every day that I get to learn so much from so many smart people, get paid doing it, get great food and perks, and when there are bumpy times i always remember 'a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor'.

    Advice to Management

    Believe. Awesome vision.

    Pros

    Relatively sane environment in terms of infra
    Great work life balance. They don't keep track of vacation which can cause problems but most people take what they need.
    Not much politics for the worker bees.

    Cons

    Not the best salary and direction can be lacking at times.
    A good bit of turnover in upper management.
    The food is nothing amazing.
