    I have been working at Wikimedia Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    lots of energy, lots of passion, great people, good mission, great offices, lots of growth. Overall, I was very happy with the organization.

    Cons

    sometimes, lack of focus, and often times the community got very political. Managing by consensus doesn't always create the best products and innovation.

    I worked at Wikimedia Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing value driven culture, work with some incredibly intelligent and driven people

    Cons

    Tends to lack focus; coordination between departments not awesome. Wandering focus hurts morale; hopefully new narrow focus actually stays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though open culture is important, C level people publicly disagreeing is problematic. So is massive turnover.
