Pros: Legitimately fast-paced, growing business. Small enough to drive/see results, big enough to provide real resources. Intelligent, idealistic employee base. Healthy culture focused on problem-solving and systemic improvement. Interesting problems to solve and a good amount of latitude to figure out how to solve them. Genuinely good people who care about each other at all levels of the company.
Cons: Normal organizational and procedural growing pains -- starting to face larger org problems while still dealing with some of the standard startup baggage. That same intelligent, idealistic employee base lacks diverse professional experience and can get easily frustrated by otherwise normal corporate things (like not getting promoted every year). Personal grumbling from people used to overachieving can distract from a pretty great place to work. Basically, some millennial stereotypes apply.
