    I have been working at AppNexus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunity for career growth here is unparalleled to any other place I've worked. I've built my position from the ground up with nothing but crazy support from my team and the execs. Expectations are certainly tremendous, and the pressure is high with everyone encouraged to give live feedback on performance and how to improve. And for me as a person and a professional, it's exactly what I've been craving in a workplace.

    I've also never worked somewhere where I have such great out of work relationships and friendships with my coworkers. Everyone here was so outwardly friendly when I joined, and that camaraderie has continued.

    Cons

    The hours can be long sometimes and definitely tons of ownership means taking responsibility (and the fall) when things go wrong.

    I have been working at AppNexus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very challenging problems (scale, rapid development, complex problem domain)
    Some of the best engineers and execs I every encountered
    Rapid growth
    Lots of opportunities for growth
    Complete transparency about strategy
    More emphasis on software engineering practices is very timely.
    Recent strategic planning process was grueling but amazingly inclusive. I have never witness exec team involve so many line people in strategic planning.

    Cons

    Tight deadline
    Sometimes project definitions are not sufficiently precise

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to have fewer meetings
    Company is growing very rapidly and responding to changing markets. Execs try very hard to keep everyone in the loop but rank-and-file would benefit from more details and more QA.
