Pros

Very smart development staff implementing academic computer science solutions to meet incredibly large scale of data and transactions.

Cons

Very intense environment requiring huge commitment without any room for work/life balance. Say goodbye to your family and any hobbies during your tenure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stack ranking places peers in direct competition, limiting collaboration among individuals as well as teams. Managers hold absolute sway over their reports. Abandon stack ranking.

    Pros

    As an intern they provided great opportunities to try different projects and even meet with different departments and positions. Given a good amount of ownership and had great management and career leadership.

    Cons

    When starting as a new employee I was surprised by the lack of on-boarding effort and introductions, but that may differ depending on the department and timing. You just have to ask a lot of questions and put yourself out there.
