    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Flexible hours
    Very smart and friendly co-workers
    Opportunities for advancement in software engineering exist, if you are willing to speak up for yourself and make management aware of your desires

    Cons

    QA department is woefully under-staffed
    Product Developers have too much control over engineering - they often tell engineers exactly which projects to work on and how to do them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are a software company, to succeed, you'll need to ensure that good software engineers want to work here. Lack of support for engineering decisions from senior management and product development make the good engineers walk away.
