    I have been working at Square full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - deeply rooted mission - at the end of the day we are changing people's lives for the better
    - ideas are valued
    - you are accountable for everything you do
    - impact, everyday I can say that I contributed to something.
    - tons of momentum
    - lots of opportunity to grow vertically and horizontally within the company
    - new, very experienced and respected leadership

    Cons

    - we're getting bigger and with that comes a lot of testing, learning and iterating. So be prepared for being a part of that. Perfection doesn't happen on the first try.
    - processes are not as ironed out as it is at Google or Facebook
    - small company feel is turning into mid-size company feel
