I have been working at Boku full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

For a company that has been around for 4+ years, it amazes me at how extremely non political this place is. Very collaborative open environment, employee development is encouraged, you are definitely given the opportunity to grow.
Smart talented people, some that really believe in the business and the power of impact/change.
Engineering culture is geared to solve problems the right way, emphasis is on quality.

Cons

Not sure of the business vision of the company, management needs to work on it more. This is not a typical 'explosive' valley startup anymore...if you are looking to work at a startup that gets featured in techcrunch all the time..this isnt it.

    I have been working at Boku full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great, great, great colleagues: very smart, dedicated, friendly, and fun
    When the company makes mistakes, it recognizes them and works to fix them
    Company is deeply loyal to the employees
    Excellent office location in SOMA, San Francisco

    Cons

    Not a "hyper-growth" company (ala Facebook, Square, Dropbox); instead, more measured (but steady) growth
    What we do is *hard*: there are tough challenges to work through, both technical and business

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating; spend a lot of time with employees at all levels. Use MBWA: "management by walking around"
