I have been working at StumbleUpon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great small company feel, with no walls between teams and leadership
Benefits (food, health care, time off, etc) are great!
Tech challenges are around and tech debt is high, but that is being changed

Cons

turnover has been high, but needed due to old defensive mentality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay the course, big bets = beg reward, tech debt can kill a company that needs to move fast.

    Pros

    StumbleUpon has great people. Individuals you want to be in trenches with. There's a underlying passion to the company that's contagious when you tap into it.

    And while not a new idea, StumbleUpon is incredibly unique in market and still captures hearts and minds of consumers every day. The idea of discovery, not knowing exactly what you want but wanting something cool, is super powerful.

    Cons

    Realizing that potential and executing with the velocity I know we can deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold everyone to the highest of standards and expect greatness. Set deadlines/deliverables that everyone in the business owns.
