    I have been working at Imgur full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Small teams, everyone's nice, and you are working on something that a lot of people use daily. Plus now I get paid to surf imgur at work.

    Cons

    Its a growing company so there are growing pains as the team grows. Otherwise no other cons.

    I have been working at Imgur full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    All team members here are valued equally and coming to work each day is a joy. Imgur is truly doing something awesome for the Internet and values the users over numbers or money. Everyone truly cares about their job and we've become a sort of family to each other. Not to mention the amazing benefits package and adorable dogs in the office!

    Cons

    If you're not the type of person who has a go-getter attitude or is able to assign yourself tasks, you might get left behind. The company is growing quickly and there's a lot to get done!

    I have been working at Imgur

    Pros

    Imgur is dedicated to great products, awesome people and above all, our users. Plus, a fun work environment that encourages the best in everyone.

    Cons

    If you want a slow-paced, corporate job this is probably not a good place to be. The company is growing fast, so things are happening at a very fast pace.

    I have been working at Imgur full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is a blast and now is the time to join; lots of momentum and lots of opportunity to make a really big impact. Great balance between working hard and fast while still having a ton of fun and time to enjoy life. The people here are incredibly passionate about what they're building and users absolutely love the product.

    Cons

    Parking is a little tricky in the financial district. The company is growing rapidly, and while they're putting the right pieces in place, there will be some growing pains. But nothing that any fast-growing company wouldn't encounter.
