    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, very smart people, cool projects. Most people are very knowledgeable in their domain and can be great mentors.

    Cons

    Your manager is in complete control of your experience as an employee. If he/she doesn’t like you, you will have an awful time and there is no point in going to your skip manager or HR, they will do nothing. Managers can also make your experience an awesome one; this is a double edged sword.

    Advice to Management

    If you put people in charge of other people, make sure they know what they’re doing, are knowledgeable in their field, and that they know how to guide a team.

    Get rid of the brilliant jerks.
