    Pros

    Increase breadth and depth in core computer science areas while you learn from and contribute to the latest and greatest software development in the industry.

    Cons

    Still a mid size startup, not a big company, so some processes may be lacking and catered food can be improved to be consistently good, but overall, nice place to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focus on good technical work and humble work culture.

    I have been working at Turn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People are very smart, company is very employee-oriented, other team members work together very well, management is very competent and transparent, compensation is quite good. Overall, an excellent environment.

    Cons

    Free lunches four days a week is very nice (and the food always quite good), but it does encourage people to work indoors and not leave the office all day. So it is a two-edged sword.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and please don't let the company's growth change the excellent corporate culture.
