You get to meet an amazing network of great people; people are loyal and hard working; make lots of great new friends; work with super smart people

Turning into a larger, more mature organisation; some less important or smaller projects are often cancelled; harder to start up new innovative projects.

Advice to Management

Product Managers should be allowed to be more hands on with the infrastructure.

    Pros

    Freedom to work and motivate one self. There is no micro-managing and you're given the freedom to work the way you want as long as it drives results. They also understand the importance of life balance and have helped me instill balance in my life.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything. There may be times where you feel the work isn't right for you, but it's big enough that you're able to move to a project and location that suits you.
