Young company where the only constants are growth and change, it's a crazy but fun ride

Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

Pros- A great mission, vision and focus on defending the user
- Open communication and transparency, easy to talk to senior management
- Serious commitment to open source
- Strong engineering culture, 50% of the company are engineers
- Incredible food and benefits

Cons- Some people are overworked and spread thin due to the growth
- Not the best location for HQ, mid market is a rough part of SF
- The company is very SF based, so remote work can be difficult at times
- The transition from a startup to a larger company has been challenging

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease balance the need to hire outside experience versus promoting within. There's an incredible amount of talent within the organization. Also please look at accommodating people who work remotely so we can reach everyone in the world.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
