Pros

Very popular app to work on and you are one of the main contributor to the product.

Cons

CEO has low EQ and yelled at you quiet often.
Very long working hours. (CEO work very long hours and he always expect you to do the time, and take it for granted.)
You will get huge pressure. (from CEO most of the time.)

    Pros

    The Engineering team is awesome - from the CEO to the server team to the distinct platform teams! Great talent and an inspirational startup to be working for. An awesome snack bar and catered food was always a delight.

    Cons

    Ended up leaving the company because the HR guy just kept pushing my buttons by making inappropriate remarks about my qualifications. Instead of addressing the issue, I chose to leave because he's very hard headed and I just don't want that negativity.

    hard to coordinate behaviors and policies among various client teams + server team
