    I have been working at Turn full-time

    Pros

    Turn is a great place to exponentially increase your technical skills. You will never feel like you are stagnating. The employees and managers at Turn are extremely intelligent, humble, and a pleasure to work with. Bruce, the new CEO, has brought a lot of positive changes to improve the health of the business as well as the culture.

    Cons

    Turn is a late stage startup and has trouble retaining valuable superstar and experienced employees who leave to join larger companies (Facebook in particular). This is a difficult problem to solve when you are a cash strapped company.

    I have been working at Turn full-time

    Pros

    The new CEO has set his eyes on a worthy endeavor. Navigate Turn through the changes seen in the industry and respond with a healthy and aligned team. The CFO never takes his eyes off the ball. The product and engineering heads don't quit or take no as an answer. Success isn't easy and the team here is focused on the right things. This challenge is fuel for the soul and a testament to the why we work. Because we take pride in what we do. And love every minute of it.

    Cons

    We are the underdog and I gather some don't realize what an underdog means. It means we scrap for every challenge, dive for every win, and stay true to our values. Can't keep up? Ask yourself if you want to be a paper pusher or be a part of taking on big big challenges?

    Advice to Management

    Doing great things. Love the lead by example and not with the public opinion. Find your truth and make sure to tell everyone about it!
