      Pros

      -I've never learned more about how to facilitate effective brainstorming and decision making meetings / workshops before, and I'm a facilitator by trade. -Highly egalitarian (sometimes to a bit of our own detriment) -High levels of transparency

      Cons

      -Sometimes because everyone wanted to help and the culture was very inclusive, we'd wind up with "too many cooks" -We got acquired :-(

      Pros

      Pivotal opened doors for me I never knew were there. It was a family environment, full of encouragement, quality feedback, empathy, hard work and play. I miss it every day!

      Cons

      Every company has its flaws and every startup has its growing pains but nothing that couldn't be overcome. Wish it didn't get bought out and melted away.
