Pros

Insanely smart people everywhere (not just eng/prod). Looking for game changing ways to approach every problem. The food and shuttles are great benefits. You can end up working a lot but it's generally because you want to, not because you have to.

Cons

Has lost the start-up culture. It's big, it's political and it's expected. It's a gigantic company and compared to overall revenues and growth the company has managed to stay as "un political" as possible.

    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern in New York, NY

    Pros

    - Great company culture. Valued even as an intern.
    - Fun challenging projects and you learn a ton. You will always be learning something in this company.
    - Very smart and friendly environment.
    - As an intern, career opportunities in the sense of converting to full time is a much smoother process than applying for full time without coming from an internship. Still the process is selective but considerably nicer.

    Cons

    - Experience is dependent on teams. I unfortunately had a team with less energy and drive.
    - Depending on the breadth of the project and whether you need to work with remote teams, it can really feel like a clanky large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to maintain the company culture and make management decisions as transparent as possible.
