    Pros

    I don't think you could find another company like this if you tried. The product is audacious and has a lot of technical surface area, so there's always something new to learn. The team is close-knit and highly experienced. Work/life balance is good most of the time and benefits/comp are stellar. Everyone is very engaged and excited by what we're building, so there's positive pressure to get stuff done.

    Cons

    Very Slack-heavy communication style. If you're not paying attention to Slack, you're missing out on important context and decisions. As a result, sometimes people aren't on the same page about what's happening and what needs to get done. You have to be able to tolerate some uncertainty, but it's a startup after all.

    Pros

    Startup with a massive goal to build a network for machines, aka Skynet. Small team with genius level people who are all kind, thoughtful and caring. Very fun and energetic group working hard to solve difficult problems and inventing new and better solutions. Fast pace, team oriented, full accountability and greater purpose for all.

    Cons

    Startup environment, loose and not much process.

    Pros

    It's rare in one's career you have the opportunity to get in early and work for a company that has solid funding from tier 1 VCs, a clear, bold, audacious vision, with a smart, friendly team.

    Cons

    Commute. Located in SF. Draw your own conclusions.
