    Pros

    _Everyone is world-class in everything they do, from PMs to Legal to Engineers who are some of the best around.
    _The challenges are huge, the impact is vast
    _Anyone can propose ideas and try them out as an experiment, the best experiments will make it out to 1 billion people!
    _Free food
    _Tons of awesome perks

    Cons

    _Can be hard to manage work/life balance sometimes, but that's mostly because there isn't enough time in the workday to work on everything I want to work on...

    Advice to Management

    Management can sometimes steer the company in another direction too fast which can cause organisational whiplash. Try to plan out a bit farther ahead and have less knee-jerk reactions to change everything all at once.

    Pros

    - The culture is very open and honest, and the heavy use of groups internally keeps everyone accountable to others. Company-wide Q&As also keep the management team transparent.
    - The work you do is high impact, and products iterate quickly
    - Hackamonths actively encourage engineers to try a different team occasionally
    - Lots of opportunities to continue learning, like training for iOS and android development

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be tough, depending on the team. This is up to personal preference though, and many teams (especially those in infrastructure) have more stable projects.
    - Coasting doesn't work here, you always have to be actively improving and not rest on laurels
