Was a great company to work in 2012
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CA15 February 2018
Great company to work in 2012 - 2015, with great product and vision. After 2015, with the change in top management focus shifted. It became a lot competitive as the main drive was to get the company to IPO. After acquisition by Cisco, the original founder/CEO left and started another startup.
Pros
Great product
Cons
lots of politics and cut throat competition

Leadership all over the place

A lot of misalignment and gossip within marketing. Priorities and the "why" changes daily. The pay and leveling isn't as competitive as it could be.
Pros

a lot of politics and gossip

A rapidly growing company with a startup culture
Extensions Developer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CA15 April 2015
Despite the rapid growth of the company, employees can still maintain a good work and life balance. The startup culture is degrading a bit as the company grows, but that's expected.
The PM is a bit disorganized and QA isn't very robust.
Pros
Good benefits and perks
Cons
None
