    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You might work with some very bright people and make good friends
    Opportunity to learn some very interesting skills and technologies
    Above market salary as long as it lasts

    Cons

    You might get all verbal accolades and encouragement till one fine day you are told that you are no longer needed!
    Managers could be picked randomly based on seniority from your peers if one leaves and may have little people skills.
    Firing, if it happens to you, is public, humiliating and outright insulting with a terse broadcast email.

    Advice to potential applicants:
    - Do not close your eyes to all the reviews on Glassdoor, thinking you are too smart too be fired
    - Do account for the potential time you might have to stay without job while comparing the salary to other places

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.
