Pros

Pleasant environment.
Often freebies, snacks, food... etc.
They seem to care about customers

Cons

The pay isn't the greatest, but good for the area.
They can fire you out of the blue with no warning and no discipline steps.

Advice to Management

Don't let HR bully you management, stand up for your employees. How can you admit you don't believe there was any intentional wrong-doing, then fire a person anyway with no written, no final, no nothing. This was the only job I've ever had that I actually liked. Thanks for ruining it for me.

    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 Management

    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.
