    Pros

    Relatively good benefits. Flexible work from home policy.

    Cons

    Company does not seem to value employee contributions. No job security. Can be laid off with virtually no notice, regardless of prior performance reviews. Unrealistic project deadlines driven purely by marketing staff with little regard to detailed estimates.

    Pros

    Good company, good benefits. If you enjoy working with large data sets and advanced technologies, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Disorganized, needs vision. Often switching priorities and chasing the shiny object (or sale) of the week. Sales seem to lead all projects, regardless of feasibility.

    Pros

    It is overall a fun atmosphere to work in most days. Some people you should just stay away from lol.

    Cons

    When it gets busy it is almost like there's no slowing down in sight. They may also cut your lunch depending on the team you end up on.

    Advice to Management

    There are a select few of managers how are genuinely helpful. Supervisor and team leads not so much.

    Pros

    Great team and benefits. Managers are hard working and provide good feedback. Really really like the program of hiring consultants for long term employment.

    Cons

    No remote work is allowed since going back about 1 or 2 years due to un productivity from a few bad apples that were taking advantage of the existing system.

    Pros

    Company strives to hire the smartest people in the industry. You will get a chance to work with the best and learn something new every day.

    Cons

    Business does not have clear direction and has missed market trends repeatedly. Chaotic and fast past environment does not allow engineers to perform proper design and implementation. Too many issues with production systems puts the entire staff into a never-ending spiral of dealing with production issues.

    Advice to Management

    Need to consider replacing top leadership on the business side.
