Contemporary work style

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsLoads of experienced people to learn from esp. the CTO/ director of engineering
The high level of management will evaluate your interest and distribute the work accordingly.
Ample opportunities to learn things from experts
Good recreation enviornment incase you are tired
Pool competitions and exciting activities
Experts in the industry to work with

ConsNo process
No organized workflow
Fast deliverables
No work time scheduled, during release , you have to work for 14 hours straight.
Team leads do not know how to work with their peers/ juniors.
Lack of expertise in-case of team leads and overcontrolling nature of team lead( sometimes)
Loads of politics to deal with

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease hire someone who is technically sound team lead, so that it may not lead to other engineers quitting the team. Inexperienced team leads / unqualified team leads ( who dont even possess a Engineering degree) feel intimidated and leads to peer rivalry.
Please avoid that situation in future.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
