    I worked at Tango full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get to work with smart and kind people to work with. Tango once had a great potential and generous benefits/perks, nice office and awesome culture.

    Cons

    Management does not take other people's opinions and feedback into account, leaving employee morale low and unmotivated. Work/life balance is non-existent. They expect you to work 24/7. A lot of people start off happy but leave happier! It is like waking up from a horrible nightmare.

    Pros

    Talented people and nice work-life balance. Eric Setton, CEO, is a genuine person that cares about you and your family. He likes to sit with different teams during lunch to chat. Very nice and heart-warming! It creates a great working environment and culture.

    Lack of a good product lead

    I worked at Tango full-time

    Pros

    Great workplace. Free lunches, snacks, beverages.

    Cons

    Company blew through $100+ million of investment $$ from Alibaba with very little to show for it. Three layoffs since 4Q 2015, with the last layoff 3 weeks before EOY (Merry Christmas!).

    I worked at Tango full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Sweat shop with a "payoff" of layoffs before their 401k match (every year I was there I saw this). Thinks offering food and mandatory "fun" events at the office is a valid replacement for your family.
