Pros

Good exposure to technology. Lot of software development best practices are followed. Free food on Wednesdays and meetings. Good office. Good brand name.

Cons

Favoritism and unfairness. Showing off is more important than technical competence. No scene of IPO for next 4-5 years.

Advice to Management

It's long time we diversify into other businesses as well. When will we IPO ? After the wave is gone and investors become afraid of putting money in IPOs ?

    Pros

    80% of time there is free food around.
    Lots of events for employees
    Weekly all-hands standup meeting with most important updates.
    Agile development practices
    Frequent talks and meetups plus reading groups.
    Very family friendly - good work/life balance.
    Subsidized chair massage and gym membership.
    Quick to adopt new technologies.

    Cons

    There used to be a bit of reluctance to try new things out but this seems to have changed with new CEO (Jeremy Verba - ex Zynga).

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to innovate more. Make the site at least as simple and intuitive as the mobile apps.

    Pros

    - Surrounded by smart people
    - I know others have reviewed the benefits as poor, but they seem good to me
    - Friendly leadership
    - Frequent all-company events
    - The company's mission is personally fulfilling

    Cons

    - Opportunities for advancement are just okay
    - The company has been slow to respond to a changing market and economic challenges

    Advice to Management

    Give those in positions of accountability (but not the highest levels of decision-making) more freedom to act on their ideas and instincts.
