Try to somehow give more stock opportunities to employees. Furthermore, try to create a way to keep the entrepreneurial feel the company started with amidst its large growth.

    Pros

    Great culture, great executive leadership. As with most growing companies, this is an exciting place to work with a lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    On the verge of becoming a larger company. As such, trying to balance encouraging entrepreneurship with requirements of scaling as a large enterprise. A lot of snap decisions are made in terms of business goals, metrics and expectations without discussion of a larger roadmap on the departmental level or larger business context.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your department heads their own P&Ls. Too much time is needed to go back mid or end of quarter to adjust costs in order to hit new (margin or operational) goals.
