Pros

- surrounded by talented coworkers everywhere
- no-nonsense environment, freedom to set your own goals, very little politics
- managers that actually understand tech, at all levels

Cons

If you're not careful, it's very easy to get sucked into the work (as you're usually doing what you like and want), pull crazy hours and burn out; good managers can detect that in advance and prevent it.

Advice to Management

Find a way to keep the awesome culture alive. Keep the hiring bar high.

    Pros

    As titled. Also, the company is still growing pretty fast, so there is plenty of opportunities to make big impact.

    Cons

    Sometimes, people compete too much internally, which could be put stress on some people. The infrastructure still needs some work to be more robust.
