    Pros

    - Get paid to work on and improve open source software - Great team - Very flexible work hours - Generous holidays compared to the local standard - Awesome CEO (Jane Silber)

    Cons

    - Big and sudden reorg, leaving hundreds of people Worldwide jobless - Because of sudden reorg, the current CEO has been fired. The founder is back as the CEO, which will bring changes in the way the company was handled since 2010 - Founder poured money into a lot of different projects in the hope to make the company profitable, but it doesn't seem to be the case 12 years after it's been created - Slowly moving towards the "let's get public", which means it's becoming prone to external investors' decisions (people who generally don't care about open source)
