    I worked at SoundHound full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    While the company has grown a lot since its early days, it still has an informal and "just go for it" culture. If someone has a "random but great" idea, there is a good chance that idea will make it into a product. There are some brilliant minds on the engineering teams, and the leadership is creative and adaptive.

    Cons

    Because this space is competitive, it can feel like you are constantly "on deadline" and there is a (correct) sense that mistakes are costly. Even though great ideas can and do make it into products, you have to be very persuasive.

    Advice to Management

    In any startup, it's tough to match job roles to the passions, strengths and aspirations of employees. At this point, the pendulum should swing to erring on the side of strengths.
