I worked at MongoDB full-time (more than an year)Pros
You will be surrounded - literally - by wonderful people. Young, intelligent, driven!
There is plenty of challenging work to be done.
You don't have to be fresh out of MIT, Stanford or UIUC to get in the door.
There is an active "Databases Reading Group" so you will always know what the competition were up to.Cons
The product has deep technical issues. Unless powering through other people's bugs is your cup of tea, this can make work very challenging.
The company is more a bunch of hackers than a serious software company. You definitely need a college degree (unless you're interning!), but a PhD is more or less worthless at MongoDB.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at MongoDB in October 2014.Interview Details
Applied through the website. The recruiter sets up a time to call you and speak with you. If you pass this screening, you get a Technical phone interview with a very senior member of the Team. The interview went well I thought, since the interviewer really liked my answer. However, I got an email that they decided to move on. I was hoping to get a call for another round of phone interview but I could not get through to the next round. Both the interviewers who spoke to me were extremely nice. It would have been my dream company to work for with all the smart people who work there. The next generation Big data company.Interview Questions
