Pros

- Very fast paced
- you truly unfluence your own future here - I know it sounds cliched but if you work harder than your peers, you will succeed.
- opportunities for advancement because the company is constantly growing and evolving
- INCREDIBLE company parties
- Most of the people are great
- Beautiful offices in the best cities in the world

Cons

A lot of the other posters are very enthusiastic about the company and probably work there too. In truth, there are legitimate great things and legitimate bad things about the company. It is still a startup culture (which I love, but is not for corporate-types), so some things are fast paced and sometimes disorganized in some areas. People always have a lot on their plate, so the hours are long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Any reviews saying that management is poor is oblivious to the company's spectacular growth, but micromanagement in some areas causes bottlenecks.

    Pros

    -Very much a meritocracy
    -They're very picky about hiring, so you end up working with great people and can make some long-time friends.
    -You're given a lot of responsibility early and learn very quickly
    -If you are dedicated to the company, the company is dedicated to you
    -You're given a lot of autonomy

    Cons

    -You do work hard and put in your time for your first year or two, but it pays off many times over
    -You wear many hats and need to learn quickly how to be a jack of all trades
    -You often need to figure things out on your own with little oversight

    Pros

    - Total meritocracy
    - You do have to put in a fair share of work, but it pays off in promotions, increased salary, increased responsibility
    - Company is constantly growing, changing and evolving - Keeps you on your toes and allows for management opportunities
    - Lots of responsibility given early on

    Cons

    - Can be stressful at times but that is the case with any sales/client-facing job.
