I have been working at Xero full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great culture and some talented leadership. Because it is still growing also means there is a lot of opportunity to make a difference within the company.

Cons

Growing can often mean allocating responsibility which is always tough. Because of the transition sometimes process can slow change (though inevitable).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Positions often change which is great; however changes need to be clearly communicated in advance. Often a change "just happens" in management whereby it'd be nice to have a "I'm interested in this" phase. Also, while some positions don't necessarily exist yet, it'd be nice to know about the possibility of the position as we grow.
