A small company environment with big company talent & resources

Software Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsAmazing, intelligent co-workers. Management that listens and goes to bat for you. Lots of new energy and potential. Willingness to try out new ideas and experiment.

ConsLong legacy of ups and downs. Disillusionment amongst veteran employees. A very volatile space to work in with a lot of risk in the market. Follow through on new ideas and experiments still unknown, many ideas in the past were shelved without trying them out.

Advice to Senior ManagementExplore as many truly new ideas as possible and give employees the resources they need to iterate quickly, test publicly, and fail spectacularly. It's not all about general search any more.

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