    Pros

    Challenging. Innovative. Iterates to perfection. Customer Centric. Opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get work done.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Overburdens employees. Cheap, not frugal. No direction. Got to figure out everything on your own. I can't imagine having less work-life balance. Good money but awful work/life balance, hours, pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire for the work needed rather than assign work to whomever is available. HR needs improvement. No ethics!

    Pros

    You'll work with smart people and learn a lot

    Cons

    Decent but not great compensation. On call can be painful

    Advice to Management

    The teams I've worked on where there's a separate on call group to handle the pages and only escalate to SDEs when necessary have been less stressful and just as effective. Use this model more. Also, getting promoted from SDE II is a hit and miss proposition (a lot depends on your manager); fix this, as you're losing good people because of it.
