    Pros

    Really committed to developing technology and iterating on the existing products. You will never get bored with the variety of work and challenges. Great opportunities to learn quick and fast with talented co-workers.

    Cons

    Ever changing goals without clear direction or objectives. Heavy meetings culture and work life balance can be a challenge. No real defined criteria for career development or advancement. Morale can be low with all the constant change and unclear direction.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear data driven strategy and communicate out quarterly goals and agendas. Don't burn out the good people by staffing so lean.
