Pros

- Very fast paced
- you truly unfluence your own future here - I know it sounds cliched but if you work harder than your peers, you will succeed.
- opportunities for advancement because the company is constantly growing and evolving
- INCREDIBLE company parties
- Most of the people are great
- Beautiful offices in the best cities in the world

Cons

A lot of the other posters are very enthusiastic about the company and probably work there too. In truth, there are legitimate great things and legitimate bad things about the company. It is still a startup culture (which I love, but is not for corporate-types), so some things are fast paced and sometimes disorganized in some areas. People always have a lot on their plate, so the hours are long.

Advice to Management

Any reviews saying that management is poor is oblivious to the company's spectacular growth, but micromanagement in some areas causes bottlenecks.
