    Pros

    - Great mission and a significant impact on the planet. - Flexible working conditions and really set up for people to do their best work as long as that intention aligns with the company mission. - For those who can make opportunities for themselves the freedom is fantastic. Equally fantastic CEO. - A fantastic place to work, make a visible impact, and leapfrog into more competitively paid roles at a... significantly higher level. - Also just great to see how products and services can be made outside of the traditional model.

    Cons

    - Laughable middle management and very poor pay as a result of the ability to attract dogmatic and mission-focused staff. - High churn of the more modern (aka less dogmatic) talent. - Pretty terrible design, UX, product management, etc teams given the state of open source overall. Even more depressingly the existing talent in those roles are largely unaware they're not cutting it (the Dunning–Kruger effect).... Most products just sigh and accept it.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better design and UX talent and try to stem the churn of people moving to Google and Amazon due to the low pay and ridiculously untrained and awkward middle managers.
