I have been working at Valve Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You get to work with the smartest people in the industry, you get to take on as much responsibility as you are capable of, you get to directly influence and make decisions about product direction, no on else has the authority to force you into a decision you don't agree with, compensation and benefits are amazing

Cons

You will be held to very high standards, having to take on more responsibility and make higher level product decisions can mean additional pressure/stress vs more narrow roles at other companies

Advice to Management

Keep hiring only the very best and don't let standards slip as the company grows
