Pros

Chance to learn so many different things i.e. platforms, languages
Benefits are very good (except vacation).
People are very nice. Everybody seems like love what he\she is doing
Awesome tools. 27' iMac, mac pro retina, air, aeron chairs ... you name it
Company grows very fast

Cons

Space. But that is addressed already. Going to move to a way bigger place.
Pair programming. Depends on how senior you are. For people just come in this industry, that is perfect for them to learn things under somebody's shadowing. For senior ones, it might be uncomfortable. But they should never pair two seniors together (at lease they are trying not to), unless there is tough piece of work.
Salary. Because of all pros above, they can sometimes (AFAIK) get talented people with less price than others.
Wish they could have 15 days of vacation ...

    Pros

    Great people, great location in downtown Toronto, fun environment to work. Free snacks and breakfast everyday. People are encouraged and sponsored to go to conferences/workshops to learn about the latest mobile technology. They are probably the hottest mobile development shop in Canada right now and have a lot of big clients so there is definitely a lot of growth potential. You also get the opportunity to work directly with the clients or business to take part in the the design of the application .

    Cons

    Work can become a little repetitive after a while. Pair programming might not be everybody's thing and definitely takes some time to get used to.
