Pros

Very positive atmosphere; being surrounded by other hard-working, results oriented prople is a great motivator. Pay very competitively but expect a certain level of expertise and effort as a result, which is to be expected.

Cons

High growth rate can put stresses on any company, and the balance between maintaining the great structure that caused the need for this growth and the ability to scale can cause big changes as the company attempts to adapt. Be prepared to be a little flexible, depending on the position you're looking at taking, as roles may adapt over time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback from employees in "the trenches" may help temper some of the resistance to changes, as feeling not heard isn't going to help overall morale.
