Pros

Awesome team of intelligent and innovative individuals. Great opportunity to make a huge impact on the industry. One of the few startups that are doing well which will get you a lot of recognition. Good work/life balance with a lot of flexibility and autonomy.

Cons

MongoDB is experiencing some growing pains right now with a lot of bureaucratic policies being put in place partially due to new execs. It's normal to have more structure as the team gets bigger but the way in which it is implemented could be handled a bit better. Fast pace growth but sometimes culture fit is sacrificed in the process. Healthy compensation packages for newcomers but, no incentives are given to existing employees who have been with the company. New managers also needs more training.

Advice to Management

Company culture is very critical at this stage so it's important to evaluate newcomers against existing company values. It's one thing to attract strong talent, it's another thing to be able to keep them and I'm not sure if MongoDB is focusing on that. New managers desperately need more training.

    Cons

    - poor work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    just keep working at it - lots of good progress so far and growing a start-up is difficult.

    I have been working at MongoDB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    What I'm doing actually matters. What the company is doing actually matters. And it's nice to work at a company where your users love the product.

    Cons

    Given how fast-growing we are, things are always in motion. You have to have a certain tolerance for ambiguity, a willingness to adapt, and the desire to roll up your sleeves.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you help the young employees grow with the company.
