Super smart folks, but definitely feels like a big company

Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsGet to work with some of the smartest and best programmers in the world. Have your choice of lots of interesting teams to work on. Free food. Good pay, benefits, etc.

ConsIt definitely feels like a big company, which means it's super-easy to coast and not do a whole lot, and it's super easy to feel like you're working on a tiny part of a gigantic company. Lots of free food doesn't make up for that.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your engineers feel like the problem they're working on is important. If it's not important, then shut it down and focus them on something else.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
