    I worked at Prosper.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Successful development of features that predate the current management team have helped propel the company into the growth it's seeing today. The rest of the technology team below management has several very talented individuals who are otherwise a pleasure to work with. Salary and other miscellaneous perks (health benefits, etc) are competitive.

    Cons

    A year into new technology management and nothing has changed – except our loss of some exceptional engineers and frustration across the entire team. Our systems have not appreciably gotten better, our processes are relatively unchanged, and we still lack anything that resembles a roadmap – moving from project to the next without a game plan.

    In exchange we have gotten management that belittles their engineering staff, their code and skills, without actually possessing those skills themselves. Finger pointing and blaming game played daily, management never seems to take the blame for mistakes. Actual shouting matches have occurred. Sexist and racist remarks appear to be encouraged via their email chains and in meetings. HR is not competent to deal with the situation (friend of management).

    Their attempts to re architect into a totally different language have been a disaster, they make no effort to understand the system before proclaiming to a team of senior and seasoned engineers “this is how you’re going to do it”. Their Wikipedia like knowledge of everything is very helpful when telling engineers how to do their jobs – it’s a comfort knowing management will tell me how to do my job – a load off my mind, and thankfully, “it’s easy”. Someone read an article about all the mistakes new managers make, and they misread the title as “good practices for a new manager”.

    Executive management attempts to project they want to facilitate growth of the team, while at the same time technology management is actively looking externally to replace all their leaders. At least they have seemed to have exhausted their network of bros that they can slot into leadership roles.

    Hiring unqualified friends is really not working out for executive management. This is a hostile working environment for anyone in technology who isn’t a friend. If you do brave it, expect a chaotic environment, leaders who can’t lead, burn out and equity that amounts to a small bonus (over 4 years of course). Additionally, consider calling one of our ex-top engineers to learn about the systems, they are still more helpful than management. Good Luck Brave Soldier!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the team's complaints. The issues with management have persisted long enough with no direct action being taken that it's apparent the issue is not a single person.
