Pros

Excellent culture that rewards performance
High hiring Bar ensures that you are working with smart people at most times
Diversity of business allows an individual to find opportunity to learn and grow within the company

Cons

Deliberately chaotic .. May not suit people who like a structured environment to work in. (Some people like this environment though.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Larger vision of the direction company wants to take should be shared with more frequency with the middle management. This helps them align their effort with the overall objective of the company.

    Pros

    Huge good quality community. Good dev infrastructure , can spend more time in ideas and business specific coding

    Cons

    Development in teams closely related to business might not be a good experience. Decisions would be biased for the business and people are very frugal and obsessed with business.
