Pros

- You are treated as an adult
- The best idea wins, there is virtually no hierarchy in this business
- A growing business means new opportunities and global mobility
- Work/Life blending means that if you want to go to the gym or do some personal errands you have the flexibility to do so whenever you want as long as you deliver your work on time - see point one.
- The people.

Cons

- Never enough time in the day
- With global operations finding a convenient time for meetings between multiple regions is a challenge so make sure you are flexible with your availability if you work outside the USA.
- don't work here if you are not elite and the best at what you do, there is nowhere to hide, unlike in a large enterprise.

Advice to Management

- Internal communication needs to keep up with the growth of the company
- In some locations English is not the operating language of the local team so be sensitive to the need for translation and direct communication with staff in their native language.
- Make sure we don't make the mistake of other companies and let silos develop.
