Pros

I work with some of the best engineers that I've seen. Company not too hierarchical. Good work is highly recognized. Ideas are listened to. Technical decisions are made with careful analysis.

Cons

Too many meetings. Too much email. Open space. Frugality. Sometimes work is not very engaging. Suffers from being too large. Internal tools sometimes a nightmare to work with. Specialization is difficult. Too much on-call duty.

Advice to Management

Invest on better tools, with better documentation. Deprecate old things. Strive for good simple designs. Encourage specialization.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn but your growth depends a lot on the team you are hired to.

    Cons

    Very poor facilities. Should take more care of employees. Also the operations work is high which can be a turn-off for some.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the facilities and try to bring good work to India office.
