I have been working at Prosper.com full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-The people! Very smart, friendly, easy going, fun to work with.
- The bosses! Exec’s are here because they want to be, not because they have to be. This makes all the difference in the world. They are passionate about Prosper, it inspires everyone. I talk with the CEO and president everyday, I learn so much from them.
-Vacations! Take them when you want, you’re an adult, love it.
-The opportunity of a lifetime. A new asset class, a growing company, a revolution! You are a part of history.
-Flexibility. Work from home, leave early to attend a school play, whatever it may be. Get your work done, do what you need to do, when you need to do it. No pushback. They respect your life, you get to have one!

Cons

-Can be hard to get technical resources for your projects, there are so many going on.
-Not going to win a trip to Las Vegas or anything like that. Not that I expect to, just saying.

    Pros

    The business is growing very quickly and management is now a lot more savvy about the impact of product and technology. Management is open to newer technologies and better ways of building the product and genuine support to improve existing systems to be more sustainable and efficient.

    Management is also welcoming changes in the culture and listening to what employees want. When someone goes the extra mile it's recognized and rewarded instead of just being expected.

    Cons

    There is some heavy lifting that will be required to overhaul some of the systems in place. Figuring out how to make those changes without impacting the rapid growth of the company will not be easy.

    Although the culture is starting to change, it needs a shot of adrenaline. Sometimes there's a real lack of urgency and responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to do everything you can to support the changes that are happening now. Forget about the way things were done before or the way things are now. Ask yourself where you want to be in 6 months, 1 year or 3 years and what needs to change to get there.
