Pros

The people are friendly and are willing to help others to be successful as well.

Cons

Due to the chaos (like any other start-up environment), getting some answers to issues are a bit delayed at times....but will be received evidently.

    Pros

    informal environment. lot of opportunities to explore at technology front. some of the best mind in industry work here.. technology team is amazing.. great blend of technologists spread across UK, romania and USA. few managers are amazing so is core platform team. can match or supercede any company in UK as far as technological advancement is concerned.

    Cons

    processes are still not very well defined .. still lot of knowledge sits in an individuals head. lot of expereinced people have parted away recently. though with teams building in romania and USA, this issue is less relevant.

    Advice to Management

    nothing in particular..have seen some of the best managers here..
