Pros

Momentum, Strategic Focus (albeit to much at once + urgent and important projects) and The People! Although chaotic at times, the work is meaningful and right. The days fly by and are filled with amazing opportunities.

Cons

Too many urgent and important priorities in addition to strategic. You must be smart and self driven.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what your doing, + ensure alignment on the urgent and important stuff at the top. The Strategic Priorities are good (in terms of alignment), but the operational pieces seem to be at odds at times.

    Pros

    You get the feeling that people want to be there and enjoy being there and i think that had a huge impact on me when i interviewed. the free food is great the new potential for growth is also wonderful. I am hoping the company stays on course and i see big things in the future.

    Cons

    The hiring approval process has been an issue however it is much much faster now then it was around the new year and it continues to change and will hopefully be even faster soon.

    Pros

    Great salary, tons of perks and benefits, massive business scale

    Cons

    Some strong inertia in middle management and the risk taking culture - but the new CEO is imprinting a new spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Be bolder, reward one-time mistakes and risk taking.
