    #LoveWhereYouWork - people really do love working here, and appreciate what the company does for the employees. I honestly couldn't see myself working anywhere else at this stage in my career.

    Anthony Noto is awesome - determined to make sure the company succeeds!

    Cons

    There have been a lot of departures, but I think that is natural once people are fully vested.

    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.
