    Pros

    Lots of freedom to grow, lots of nice benefits like catered lunches, breakfast and dinner. Very shallow management structure. Departments are organised into small teams that have lots of freedom to work however they want (e.g. standups, meetings, issue tracking that they use)

    Cons

    It's starting to be a bigger company and not a startup anymore, so things that used to work now don't anymore. Flexibility is lost for corporate structure.
