I have been working at AO full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing place to work. I have been here nearly 4 years and by far the fastest paced environment to work in. If you want to push boundaries and be given autonomy to improve the business then AO is definitely the right place to work.
The benefits are excellent with the addition of a great office environment including a Starbucks and Spa.

Cons

As other reviews say, its not for everyone, you need to be prepared for change at the drop of a hat but that comes with the environment and if you can handle that you will fit in well with the business and enjoy all that comes with it.

    I have been working at AO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Since I joined AO almost two years ago, no two days have ever been the same. We are constantly looking at new innovative ways to develop an amazing experience for our customers. Our 'fail fast' approach gives us the confidence to test new things to continually push the dial. We also have free chocolate, fruit and pop on tap, a Starbucks and beauty spa onsite!

    Cons

    You need to love working in a fast paced environment! We are extremely agile, which means we have an idea on a Thursday and it's live by Friday.
