    Pros

    Fabulous, stable product
    Team atmosphere
    Nice compensation package and (improving) benefits
    Defensible differentiation / business model

    Cons

    Nothing jumps out at this point. There are changes being made to facilitate growth which I agree with, that rub some employees the wrong way - to be expected.

    Pros

    Great culture, product, and focus. Competitive benefits. Kitchen is well stocked with snacks/drinks. Many employees play sports weekly during lunch.

    Nothing serious. Best company I've worked for in over a decade.

    Continue to listen to customers and employees.

    Pros

    New swag, stocked kitchen. Office manager is very kind.

    Cons

    Acquired by PE firm... lots of change and uncertainty. Many of the new executives are out of Austin... upcoming HQ change? In addition to demotions, they also recently let go of MANY well performing employees right before the holidays without any notice....

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better
