Pros

Was a good company to get things done. Business grew fast, and everyone contributed to that.

Cons

Lots of work, no work life balance, compensation structure is bad. People made money only because of stock growth, and when stock grew, you got lesser stocks.

Advice to Management

Start respecting your employees more.

    Pros

    High hiring bar, opportunity to experiment and do some interesting work that make impact on the business. Ability to bring dogs to work. Good culture clearly defined for employees through the leadership principles.

    Cons

    The company is growing significantly however, promotions to Director seems to be rare. There are HR people in big roles, doing great work whom I respect who have not been promoted. I am surprised and concerned that there really isn't a career path.

    Compensation is a concern for many employees since the stock has dropped 25% recently.

    Advice to Management

    Provide advice on how to get to Director of HR.

    Pros

    you will have the chances to collaborate with lots of teams, since it's a service oriented architecture company. Quickly, you will learn the way to work with others to get things done. Very supportive team environment, have channels to get support from various levels

    Cons

    no perks at all, management level was expecting you to work over hours as normal. when running scrum, sometime it's just the procedure, which caused too many interruptions of engineering work.
