Pros

There are a lot of hard working people that care (but VPs don't listen), free food on Tuesday, good location, yoga at lunch, & Macbook/PC options

Cons

Suck up to the VPs and you're golden! Disagree (especially if you're female) and goodbye. Engineers, AMs, Sales people, managers, directors be warned. Check the turnover on LinkedIn.

The people who do the work are not respected or appreciated. People are easily hired and fired. In the past couple months, there have been a dozen departures and there are only 60 people in the entire Co.

Advice to Management

Listen to your customers. Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    As an engineer, I get to play around with pretty cool and new technologies around big data like NoSQL (e.g. redis/cassandra) & MapReduce. Quarterly hackdays to work on just cool stuff and show off to the entire company, and free food on Tuesdays. All the engineers here are very sharp - don't have the problem that I've seen before where there are a few guys that everyone knows just don't cut it but are kept around doing random work. Benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    Pay is only 'okay' - bigger salaries at Facebook/LinkedIn and other larger startups, and the employee/salary review seems random (but does happen). Turnover on non-product side seems high.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, make sure we still keep the startup-agile culture. Keep big-company policies away and nurture the innovative culture.
