    Pros

    You get to work on something that people love. You'll work with smart people, and — of course — learn a lot.

    It's nice to work for a company that doesn't make money by manipulating people or selling them stuff they don't really need. Senior management has issues, but at least their heart is in the right place. Sadly, that's more than you can say about most companies.

    Cons

    There is a glut of mid-upper management. Too many cooks in the kitchen at times. Depending on your department, you may have to deal with being micromanaged. Top management gets distracted by a new shiny object every few months and decides to do a "reorg."

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees and let them guide the ship. Make decisions based on data, not on gut instinct.

    I have been working at lynda.com full-time

    Pros

    - founders are awesome people, their heart in right place, but they got wrong management in place.
    - some really fun people to work with

    Cons

    - management tries out a new style every few months. prevailing sense of confusion and chaos.
    - some engineers are high school pass outs. though they know some of the stuff really well, their arrogance, immaturity and rudeness clouds everything.

    Advice to Management

    only advise is to the founders. clean up your management.
