Excellent learning platform with great work life balance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsLot of scope to learn something new.
Easy to switch between teams and broaden your horizon.
While there is always a deadline to wrap up your work, there is ample opportunity to maintain work life balance.
Encouraged to think of a solution from consumer standpoint versus doing it just for the sake of learning a new technology.
Ample opportunity to learn about the business.
Awesome people... you will work with some of the best folks in the industry, both knowledge wise and behavior wise.

ConsCompensation is average.
Health package is average to below average
Other benefits are average to below average
Limited opportunities to grow as a technical leader, although that is slowly changing... but more needs to be done.
Vacation package is below average
Sometimes there appears to be too much focus on satisfying business versus getting the right solution out into the market... and that leads to unnecessary compromises being made to quality of the product.
Too much reliance on a single big client versus exploring other options.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the cons...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
