    I have been working at MongoDB full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Very "techy" startup for being on the East Coast. No social media pointlessness. If you like technical challenges and don't like corporations this is the place to be.
    - Transparent work culture.
    - Great, smart, dedicated co-workers.
    - Lots of individual responsibility across the board.
    - An actual chance to make an impression on an entire software technology vertical.

    Cons

    - Messy and changing management and sales structure.
    - Lack of coherent message and strategy internally.
    - The company is in a great place technology and market impression wise, but struggling to monetize open source and hence changes strategy very often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve consistency in internal and external strategy communication.

    Pros

    solid product, great community support

    Cons

    the product is open source, free of charge. Not to many people want to pay for support, for a product that works very well, and seldom goes down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide with proper training

    Pros

    Good opportunity, good product, great culture and management.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover (but you should expect that with a growing company), hard time monetizing (but you should expect that with open source), constantly changing offerings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great, its direction from up top that needs to be more well thought out.

    I worked at MongoDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Mongo just has some of the smartest people I've ever worked with. It's clear everyone is very passionate about the product and about doing things well, no shoddy engineering to be found. Perfect balance of professionalism and nerd culture.

    Also who wouldn't wanna get around the office in a scooter?

    Cons

    Big drinking culture. I felt that to be slightly polarizing when it would happen very often. But that's just me. Also it felt like my supervisors were constantly in meetings when I needed to meet with them.

    Pros

    Great culture and people. The intern program was well developed and allowed you to work where you wanted.

    Cons

    Sometimes I was left with nothing to do. While this was not often, it would have been nice to have some things planned out ahead of time.

    I have been working at MongoDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Had a great summer working on a really interesting project. The people here are very smart and helpful and I definitely felt challenged. Hours were good (10-6) and the other intern events they had throughout the summer (including a speaker series ~once/week with senior members of the company) were fun. I stayed in the provided NYU housing which was just OK but a bunch of the interns lived there so it was pretty fun overall. Pay is very competitive and they are open about the job offer process for rising seniors.

    Cons

    Seemed like the non-engineering interns didn't have as great of an experience. The company is growing quickly and there was some reorganization and layoffs during the summer which kind of gave the impression that the company is a little unstable.

    I worked at MongoDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns are treated as full-time employees and given real responsibilities. All of the intern projects are very interesting and actually contribute to something useful.
    The people are great: everyone is passionate about their jobs and super helpful if you have questions.
    Perks are wonderful even for interns (lunches twice a week, housing paid for, transportation costs covered).
    Nice work/life balance - never pushed to work more than 40 hours per week.
    Pay is above industry standard.

    Cons

    Office is in Times Square so you have to navigate around tourists when walking anywhere.
    Company is still growing and structure changes are still happening.

    I have been working at MongoDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - project/intern matching system to help you find the project you'd be most interested in and interesting projects overall, some other companies don't allow you to choose your project which is a huge turn off
    - took the time/effort to find the right engineering project for me which I really appreciate
    - NYC is awesome
    - housing provided

    Cons

    - wish I could have started the internship a month earlier
    - small cafetaria

    Software Engineer Intern

    I have been working at MongoDB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    MongoDB has a lot of smart employees. They also treat their interns very well and have some fun events planned out for them throughout the summer. The in-house speaker series is a great chance to meet some of their upper management who have lots of experience in industry. Even if you're not working directly on the database, they put you through a training course the first week to acquaint you with their software.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about, sometimes the culture felt too east-coasty but that's probably because I'm from back west. They are moving very fast and it can be easy to get caught up in the craziness.
