Pros

The product is loved by users all over the world. It is incredibly powerful, yet simple. The people there are really great - very caring.

Cons

The upper management on the tech side have a lot to be desired. They are incredibly smart, but have absolutely 0 people skills.

Advice to Management

You need to act more like a management team by helping and guiding people. Listen to what they have to say, even if you do not agree.

    I have been working at MongoDB as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    10gen is not too big. As an intern we had lunch and question sessions with the founders and CEO. They gave us choices for our project and hooked us up with mentors. All of the projects were real work that is important to the company. Everyone is friendly, you can just go up and talk to them. They had intern events like movies, lazer tagging, etc. every week.

    Cons

    Doesn't have the crazy perks like free cafeteria, hair cuts, busses, etc., that you get at big companies like Facebook or Google.
