    Pros

    You'd work with some of the finest people who bring a combination of intelligence, sharpness, and hands-on, rolled-up sleeves culture. You will learn every day and develop leadership skills that are top of the world.

    Cons

    Work environment is extremely tough and there is no work-life balance. Also, more emphasis is given on short-term execution goals, compared to strategic level, longer term problem solving. Salary structure forces even top executives to sell stocks to maintain lifestyle.

    Advice to Management

    To attract and retain senior leaders, consider changing the salary structure.

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
