Super-strong company

Senior Technical Program Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsSo much smarter a company than Microsoft (where I came from). Middle-managers know what their job is...reconciling inconsistencies between teams and setting the right priorities for customers.

ConsNone, I love working here. The people are smart, management is awesome, and the company is growing every day. Technically, the engineering is Service-Oriented-Architecture hell...it takes forever to introduce a change and integrate it with the rest of the environment because everything is so complicated.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
