Pros

Transparent work environment; very talented and hard working workforce; strong culture; employees care about company success; approachable leadership team; minimal politics

Keep the culture intact as the company continues to grow; watch the salary issue - don't want to lose good talent; adopt broader workplace flexibility

    Pros

    Awesome place to work for

    Cons

    Being open source, things are not as streamlined as proprietary companies. That's both a challenge and an opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work


  2. "depends on the department"

    Pros

    lots of sharp people to work with. fast paced environment where you learn on the fly.

    Cons

    doesn't seem to pay competitively in some departments such as global support services. Some departments are still nice to work for and will pay and treat people appropriately. Global support services however has taken the lower road. little freedom to do the right thing is given and micromanagement is a real problem. you will not even get close to your market value and the low pay is not worth staying in this kind of environment.
