    I worked at Aereo full-time

    Pros

    It's an exciting space to be in, and it's refreshing to be a part of a company who's not at all afraid to challenge giants in the space. I also thought that the business decisions that were made were good, but that's from a perspective of an engineer in the company.

    Cons

    The Boston office culture is really odd. I say that to mean that there's very little socializing in the office, despite the open floor plan. Outside of the occasional "good morning", days in the office can go on by without any chatter, even in the kitchen/break room.

    Additionally, technical decisions were often made poorly, if they were made at all. The only quality control for the codebase is that there isn't. Code and features were often thought of as "need to get this out the door as soon as possible", as opposed to "am I making the right technical decisions" or "will I gain too much technical debt". There isn't any conversation about code reviews or code quality. I suppose put another way, as a developer you have a lot of freedom and you can land all sorts of code in the repository, if that's what you want to do. There's another layer of complication as there are some pretty big personality developers on the team that make it hard to actually talk about development issues or code design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quality of product is more than just having QA staff.
