      Pros

      A once in a lifetime opportunity to work for a truly world changing idea and product, driven forward and led passionately by its founders and industry experts, from product to sales and marketing. This is the sort of company that will define its employees and give them the courage to build their own companies one day. Thanks for the wonderful years here.

      Cons

      Can there be too much to do when you're changing the world?

      Pros

      Great people and offices. Interesting idea.

      Cons

      No bandwidth to actually change anything in the strategy. If you show data that doesn't fit the idea of the CEO or could hurt investors (who are the real target here, everything is done to raise money, nothing is done to improve the product), you get fired.

      Nothing positive about this company, worst career decision I ever made.

      Blatant bullying and clique type culture, open displays of rudeness and passive aggression and intimidation.

      Pros

      - Really interesting mission - to try and establish a global addressing standard - Full of ambitious yet also supportive and friendly people - Every day is different, whether it's the market, the project, the challenge, the way w3w is being applied. - Feel supported by my managers and teammates - Feel comfortable and safe to fail and make mistakes - Lots of opportunity to try new things, take initiative, speak your mind -- as long as you back it up.

      Cons

      - Not as diverse as it could or should be. - Can be a bit relentless, so easy to burn out if you're not careful. - Doesn't close during Christmas period - Sometimes feels like there's a lot of cooks in the kitchen in terms of stakeholders.
