    * a lot of competent developers * office is amazing * competitive salary * good work-life balance

    * very bureaucratic and political * not a meritocracy * far more profitable to get along with everybody and do a mediocre job, than fighting for something and hurting feelings

    Pros

    - Smart Colleagues willing to help and do stuff - Possibility to learn about pretty much anything and touch to any subject making it an intellectually challenging place (if you want) - Amazing offices : You can meet the all world here - Vibrant culture

    Cons

    - Don't take much risk on the business front anymore : Incremental improvements at that stage . The revolution was yesterday - Work hard but moderate rewards. Forget about the shares : You will only be an employee ... forever - Career progression is limited due to flat structure

    Advice to Management

    Accept we are like Microsoft in 2010 and do something about it. Be bold
