    Pros

    Great place to learn and get experience in high traffic web applications.
    Fun and interesting coworkers. Relaxed environment.
    Competitive compensation.

    Cons

    It all depends on which group you're in - some groups have very low morale.
    Still alot of legacy code to maintain.
    Difficult to get recognition unless your manager supports you.
    Too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with plans and empower employees more.
    Must be willing to create more new products and depend less on legacy products and copying competitors.

    No opinion of CEO
