    Pros

    Fast growth. Some great managers. Always something interesting to work on, with the ability to move around to other teams, languages, and technologies. Encouraged conference attendance. Beautiful and convenient office locations. Office amenities targeted based on location (this is a plus and minus).

    Cons

    They hire nationally, but benchmark locally. Average compensation. Below average PTO. Working from home/remote rare or exceptional.

    I worked at New Relic full-time

    Pros

    Great Product, will get bought out or go public

    Cons

    Leadership on sales side is weak (with the exception of a few). Amazing culture is gone. Everything "Preached" doesn't occur

    Advice to Management

    This WAS the perfect company to work for. Now it's a good place to make $ as the company scales. Just be honest about that...as the communication internally isn't fooling anyone
