A fun ride, with lots of opportunities to soar

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Menlo Park, CA

Pros- The culture is very open and honest, and the heavy use of groups internally keeps everyone accountable to others. Company-wide Q&As also keep the management team transparent.
- The work you do is high impact, and products iterate quickly
- Hackamonths actively encourage engineers to try a different team occasionally
- Lots of opportunities to continue learning, like training for iOS and android development

Cons- Work/life balance can be tough, depending on the team. This is up to personal preference though, and many teams (especially those in infrastructure) have more stable projects.
- Coasting doesn't work here, you always have to be actively improving and not rest on laurels

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

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