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

    Pros

    On-site microbrews, casual work atmosphere, good location near SF Giants ballpark.

    Cons

    Management didn't have a coherent business strategy and was very clique-ish. Office essentially run by parent company from Japan. So Japanese overlords and local leadership were rarely playing from the same sheet of music.

    Advice to Management

    Much too late, but maybe next time take a more professional and nuanced approach to leadership.
