    Pros

    Intelligent, fun, and vibrant workforce. Awesome food and quality of life. Being based within the city makes the urban office community more exciting (despite being located in a sort-of-sketchy area). Exciting growth with global aspirations. Overall, pretty great.

    Cons

    Explosive growth can lead to concerns about the future company culture (ie "selling out," "feeling too corporate," etc). Management has handled the growth trajectory well, but becoming publicly-traded can lead to short-term pressures in the future. This could hinder the fun and passionate atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to maintain the electric spirit of the company as it grows more and more.

    Pros

    - Small enough to be able to make a significant impact, big enough to have resources to do so
    - Strong leadership and company values
    - Interesting challenges abound
    - Scrappy, desirable to someone who wants to get their hands dirty and "figure it out"

    Cons

    - Opportunities for improved efficiency across the company
    - Less structure than at peer companies that have been around for longer; for people wanting to follow a clearly defined path, this is not the place for you
