    Promote from within. Focus more on individual contributors success and their relationship with leadership

    Pros

    Smart engineers, fun location. OK pay, cool CEO

    Cons

    Back stabbing all the time. Nightmare managers. Your boss will assign you something that's impossible to finish, and refuse to see there mistakes in this. Manager will blame you for not working during the holiday. You are treated unequally, people only help their friends, so it's not about how well you are doing but about being friend with the right person.

    Pros

    Products are very genius and they are preparing some economic version which seems to have a greater impact in business. Open office and everyone is nice to teach you something.

    Cons

    Strategies are mislead by bad management. Still hear a lot of painfulness about growing.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership committed to the company's core values. Extraordinary and transformative products. Loyal customers.

    Cons

    The same challenges you'll find in any fast growing high tech environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going. Support HR so they can take the time required to ensure the company continues to bring in new employees whose own core values resonate with the company's core values. Make sure people are taking adequate time off to rest and rejuvenate.
