    Pros

    Skillz is a very exciting place to work -- there's never a dull moment. The company has been and continues to be a rocket ship, and so every day brings some crazy exciting opportunities (but also sometimes setbacks). Overall, it's a rewarding place to work and you'll likely learn a lot.

    Cons

    Skillz can certainly be stressful at times. Ambitious goals, lots of accountability, and still a small enough organization that people will really be relying on your contributions across the company, so it's a big deal if you miss.
