    Pros

    A company that does indeed care about their end user - the publisher.
    Takes care of the company and makes genuine efforts for inclusion and to make employees feel valued, happy and to be a leading company in their industry.

    Great, smart co-workers.

    Open-minded leadership.

    Cons

    Sometimes culturally a bit... not "by the books" and a bit patch-work? Hard to say but some people felt annoyed it seems by perhaps a bit more Indian business style, though it didn't bother me.

    Things take way too long to happen and different teams have different operational challenges or ways to perform and the overarching policies are not adaptive enough to be effective as a blanket solution.

    Excessively revenue focused as a performance metric - would be good to form better strategic performance outlook.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are going great, but try small scale risks to diversify products and an open mentality to think with different mindsets and perspectives beyond what has served you.

    Learn about design sprints and how to harness agile design practices -- it's not just frontend and painting pictures -- it's about strategic product and operations, testing quick and fast, planning before building.

    Move away from singular focus on revenue as the key performance metric; it's basic and narrow-visioned.

    Pros

    Working for a company where the CEO believes in transparency and the happiness of his employees is a rare gem these days. When you pair that with some of the smartest, most driven people I've ever met you enter a world that most companies only wish they could create. Most importantly I feel valued working here.

    Cons

    I don’t have real cons. However, a review is not complete without some sort of negativity. Sometimes they run out of Chobani in the fridge :(

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the transparency and employee first attitude.
