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

    Pros

    There are a lot of advancement opportunities at Machine Zone as the company is growing. The work is fast paced so you will need to be passionate to keep up and push the boundaries. If you are then you will go a long way.

    Machine Zone treats the employees well with compensation, events, social outings, and listening to what you want.

    Cons

    The only people I have seen leave the company were looking for a relaxed place where you can sit back and code for a few hours and go home. This place demands passion for the work and what we do. But on the plus side, everyone that is working here are talented, passionate, awesome people now.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows, try not to let it become like a big company "Feel".
