Definitely has sound parts of the company, but still feels like it is just trying to stay afloat

Pros

The company benefits, the flexible hours, and the opportunity to work remotely are definitely perks. Plus, there are some sharp and talented people still with the company. Lastly, the company does try to provide some interesting events to break up the workday.

Cons

The politics from the senior leadership severely affect projects and product strategies, sometimes without any sound reason. A couple of them do not appear to have the experience or skills to actually lead their team.

    Pros

    Chance to work on software used by millions. Very organized teams and workflow. Frequent reviews, they will invest in learning new technology.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, slow-moving corporate culture. Engineering seems to be safe from layoffs, it seems mostly middle management that falls victim .
