Pros

- Explosive growth means you can have full ownership over your work and career. You can own as much as you ask for
- Extremely collegial atmosphere where everyone shares common goals and works together regardless of title or function
- Opportunities to work on projects outside of your business unit/function
- "Hack Day" judged by senior leadership and is a great way to have your ideas heard and work with people outside of your business unit
- Completely open and honest leadership. VERY few surprises.
- Very energetic and friendly employees at all levels.
- Ridiculous perks (free catered gourmet lunch, kitchen on every floor is like a free 7-11, free Caltrain passes, free SF shuttle, onsite dry cleaning, haircuts, car detailing, minor car maintenance, massages, redbull fridges all over!)
- Extremely competitive benefits package

Cons

- Explosive growth means office is short on space. Plans are in place to fix this but campus might be split up until a permanent home is found :(
- Massive hiring leads to a somewhat rushed onboarding experience. Few "official" social events to acclimate new hires but that changes once you get to know people in the office

Advice to Management

Great job keeping the small company feel. Hope we can find a way to have one campus with everyone in the future.

    Pros

    Personal Leverage: Still agile enough that an individual can make a difference at the company. And the company reaches 100M users monthly. Awesome ability to make a dent in the universe.

    Impressive lack of stupid politics. Generally strong interdepartmental cooperation.

    Cons

    Increasing bureaucracy. Still not too bad but if the rate of increase continues it might get frustrating.
    Bay area staff split across multiple locations increases functional silos.
    Lack of automation in some key internal functions (e.g. Human Resources)

    Advice to Management

    No need to build a "big company culture" just because we're becoming a big company. Keep it lightweight and entrepreneurial.
