I have been working at Imgur full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

+ CULTURE: we have a bunch of values written on the walls etc., but none of that means anything if people don't adhere to them. At Imgur, the values actually do define how we behave and treat one another. At its core is respect and compassion.
+ IMPACT: We reach tens of million of people every day. Its pretty cool for such a small team to have an impact on so many people.
+ LEARNING: Every single day I'm learning from people who are smarter than I am. There's an incredibly talented group of people here, who challenge and push one another to perform at their best.

Cons

- Some times people leave the fridge open overnight and all the food needs be thrown out in the AM.

Advice to Management

Keep on keeping on! Since I've been here I've seen you grow as a team. Its incredible to watch and be a part of it.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that every team is on the same page when developing features. While a lot of trust is given to each team to complete their requirements at their own pace, there still needs to be coordination to ensure everyone is on the same page during every phase of development.

    Pros

    Culture and core values are no joke, Imgur practices what it preaches. Incredibly smart, talented, passionate people across the board. Great location, great perks, great work/life balance. The CEO is incredibly humble and wise. People are given lots of trust and autonomy. Reason and logic prevail here.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as teams expand and new processes are put in place to accommodate managing the project pipelines. I think this is a common denominator for any company at this stage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
