    Pros

    Excellent products, smart people, well run as it grew. Fun place to work. People willing to cross departmental boundaries to get things done.

    Cons

    Became big enough to grow a bureaucracy and lost the fun start up culture. Other than that, it was a good place to work.

    You guys did well, taking the company to a successful IPO. Hope you all kept up the good work in your next companies.
