    Pros

    Tons of autonomy, great opportunities for growth, lots of interesting and smart people.

    Cons

    The infrastructure is going through a huge transition right now, and the company is having lots of growing pains because of it. They're going to come out amazing on the other side, but it can be a little rough right now.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they're doing great.
