    I worked at Ning Inc full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best group of engineers I've ever had the opportunity to work with; everyone cared about their respective tasks and contributions to the overall product, often working as hard as necessary to get things done regardless of how unreasonable the deadlines were.

    Cons

    Long hours, grueling redundant work that feels largely unnecessary, impartial to career growth opportunities internally.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more to tenured employees, especially the ones that have shown dedication and area expertise, be more conscious of overworking, and provide constant feedback on career paths at the company.
