    I have been working at Ripple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some smart people that work here.

    Cons

    The business strategy sounds like it is written by a 5 year old "First, we will create a digital asset. Then, we will have a network, get transactions and then we can IPO!" There is so much potential here, if key executives that drive the strategy would drop get a clue and actually focus on execution and creating real value that the market will pay for vs. paying people to use the software and claiming success through vanity metrics.

    I have been working at Ripple full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've been working in tech for 10 years and Ripple is the real deal. Most recently I was at another hot company in silicon valley and the contrast here is profound. Ripple has a a very open environment of smart people without the arrogance that permeates other companies that are growing quickly - addressing big markets. I attribute a big part of that to mature, experienced leadership that has a clear plan and is executing that plan.

    Cons

    To be fair, Ripple is not immune from growing pains... that's what happens when you add about 25% of your total headcount in one quarter! There are some mid-level managers (and even one or two more senior managers) that need to scale with the business and focus more on helping their teams grow with the company.
