Pros

Super-Smart passionate people around you.

Cons

Work-Life balance is very unbalanced. Employee perks are almost non-existent. Operational burden is high.

Advice to Management

Treat employees the same way as you treat customers. They are the biggest advocates for the company. Management needs to be more transparent.

    Pros

    1) Work Environment 2) Very dedicated to employees 3) Nice facilities 4) Great company 5) Flexible on working from home 6) Allows pets 7) A very family like atmosphere

    Cons

    The cafeteria in the Seattle location is a little expensive. I believe it is because they want to encourage people to support the local businesses in South Lake Union, a great idea, but I think bringing a salad down to the market value will still encourage people to explore while allowing employees on a tight schedule to grab a healthy meal.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the internship program

    Pros

    Good technology, large scale, a lot of technical problems to solve, you will learn a lot

    Cons

    A lot of politics, there is no great acknowledgement of achievements, you have to deliver at every single moment in your life to reach a happy situation, work life balance is really bad and it's really hard to estimate the tasks cost

    Advice to Management

    Work here is very stressful, we are required to perform a lot of duties that other companies don't ask for, If you show some respect to this and understand how stressful employee life is; then, I think you will take the right actions and provide the right employee judgement. Also, it's not wise to estimate a very low cost of a task that should take more than expected time.
