    I have been working at Automattic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Automattic for more than three years and it's a great place to work. I have a lot of flexibility to choose my working hours, the people are terrific, and I've learnt so much.

    Cons

    It's growing quickly and there are lots of changes.

    I have been working at Automattic full-time

    Pros

    Every year the entire company flies out to a Grand Meetup for a week, all expenses paid, as well as team meet up. The people are friendly and they care a lot about their employees welfare. Once inside you can see pretty much everything, very transparent and open.

    Cons

    it can be a difficult job, not everybody is cut out for remote work, and there aren't many junior roles

    I have been working at Automattic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open source, great pay and benefits, supportive group. Lack of office means less politics. Surprisingly little bureaucracy for a five hundred person company.

    Cons

    Can be isolating to be remote, you need to find a social life outside of work. There is three to four weeks of travel as well. Because teams are distributed you might have meetings and at odd times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to open source, keep up the transparency, don't follow market fads, and try to keep all of the products well-designed and accessible.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, fulfilling work, and great training. Definitely an environment for those who prefer independence, but coworkers are always willing to offer help.

    Cons

    Remote working isn't for everyone. I didn't suffer from this issue, but it could be isolating for others.

    Pros

    Fully remote. Great technology and freedom of choice. Work life balance, respect from colleagues and management. Everyone is nice and helpful. Great perks.

    Cons

    Fully remote - sometimes you would like to talk face to face :) but slack, hangouts help a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Carry On.

    Pros

    Work from home, good industry connections, and awesome benefits make this job worthwhile.

    Cons

    There isn't much room for vertical growth or promotions - more or less you stay doing what you were brought on for in the long haul.
