    Pros

    * Lots of autonomy to grow your career in the direction you desire
    * Great comradery within teams
    * Strong senior mentors that invest time in your development
    * Ultimate work hard - play hard corporate culture
    * Casual, young atmosphere with great networking opportunities
    * Constant change / growth prevents boredom while challenging and developing skill set

    Cons

    * Constant change / growth requires flexibility and adaptiveness
    * People who aren't flexible or adaptive constantly complain about said change / growth

    Advice to Management

    Do less "flying the plane while building it" and more "let's figure this out and consider all consequences (and come up with backup plans) before rolling it out to thousands of employees".

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Upper Management seems very unknowledgeable about where they want the business to go. Monthly changes of goals criteria make it impossible to have any job security.

    Advice to Management

    Think before you act
