    Pros

    If you are thoughtful and present your data-driven arguments well, you can get things done rather quickly. The CEO and the rest of the execs are incredibly approachable and with it.

    Cons

    Tough to keep the culture in tact when you grow 100% in a few years but we've done a good job moving from startup to fun, agile, but real company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Intra office travel is great... Keep it up and maybe increase it for select positions.

    Pros

    It's an ok place to work. Nothing to make a career of. But pretty decent. Cool people. Crappy tech.

    Cons

    The campaign to boost ratings here is sad and defensive. Own the stuff that ain't grt and make it better instead of sugar coating. Ppl aren't stupid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the Glassdoor white washing. It's grody.
