Pros

Pay is great.
Company is growing.
Other compensation is great and includes
- Stock incentives
- Well stocked kitchens with drinks and snacks
- Paid days to volunteer in the community
- Strong commitment to the environment
- Yearly bonuses
Management recognizes and acknowledges contributions

Cons

With such fast growth teams can get out of touch with each other and priorities can shift so work you've spend a lot of time and energy on can quickly go by the wayside.

Advice to Management

Best I've seen so far, I'd say just keep doing it

    Pros

    Fast paced. You learn a lot. I did, and will never regret the time I spent there. Note that you will not survive at the company long term unless you're willing to play their political games.

    Cons

    Since my time when the company was smaller and the culture was still fine I've heard that things have changed to the worse. This is somewhat natural given it's current size.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget who really creates the product.

    Really like the company - fast paced and dynamic but experience could vary across departments

    Pros

    Technical growth is encouraged and supported
    Top management (CEO) has clear vision and direction
    Generally a fun place to work with good people

    Cons

    Middle management needs improvement
    Internal career growth has not be good - I see a lot of hiring of middle management from outside instead of growing internal people
    Priority changes frequently at the lower level even with a clear big picture at the top
    Lots of political land mines to navigate
    Work life balance is given lip service but must be defended by the individual (probably related to poor middle management)

    Advice to Management

    The trickle down middle management needs to open the spout and pass on more information and be more supportive
    Internal career growth needs to be nurtured if employee retention is truly desired (especially in some departments)
