    Pros

    Awesome culture and leadership. Feel honored to work amongst the amazing talent that's been acquired over time. The exec staff is second to non and have one of the top investors within the world as a co-founder.

    Cons

    The company doesn't move as fast as it used to since we have grown almost 10x in size over the past 4 years. There are opportunities that are more venture or strategy driven that DO facilitate faster-paced projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep kicking tail and taking care of your most valuable assets…the employees.
