Pros

Fantastic product company, lots of smart folks, lots of energy / passion for technology.

Cons

The company once slim and trim has grown many folds; bloating the middle management. Consequently its a Managers Carousel - you work for a manager for on an average 6 months before they get promoted (or) move to a different group taking with them your effort and rapport and you watch your effort and hard-work go in-vain.
In short back to Square one :).

Beware some times this may cause people getting stuck in a given grade for years; causing mass exodus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please shed the fat and keep the organization flat.
It has one of the greatest engineers, but bad management will force these engineers to leave.
