Is this a good time to join SNAP?

Keeping aside all culture issues, is this a good time to join the company as a finance person? How's the growth in general and especially on Android looking? The company seems to be betting big on Android and that's perhaps where the next wave of growth will come from. Trying to run away from one potential layoff and don't want to land in an unstable zone again.

    I just joined snap, I'll go for it, I declined Google for snap just because there is potential for upside.

    Legit question: in what way do people actually think Snap can/will grow?

      Wasn't user growth flat in December? Or have things been changing? Apologies if I misread some stuff.

      Once snap users are old enough to find a job, they will use Snap less often..

      @Apple average time also more, it's basically different platform, if you check out number it's pretty promising

      Yup users growth we're pretty flat just 1 million more users but I think more people will come slowly from developing world I could be wrong, that's the risk you have to think about research some numbers may be that will give you some idea

      @Intuit, they would also have more purchasing power thus ads being more valuable.

    How is work life balance? Should I expect it is not good in general since most are young and ambitious folks there? I mean people with kids may look like relatively working less and may result in bad review.

    I thought DAU is around 180M on snap and has declined since peak and is stagnant. Please correct me if Iā€™m wrong.
