Shipping quality code at a sustainable pace

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Foster City, CA

ProsThe code you write ships. Priorities are stable, you know what you'll be working on tomorrow. Good planning and high quality reduce crunch time and fires. Strong product management team does a great job defining and prioritizing work.

ConsTwo-year release cycle. Not-invented-here syndrome. Decade-old libraries and frameworks. The lack of modern architecture makes it difficult for high-skilled engineers to apply their knowledge.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe sustainable pace of development and stable priorities are big assets, continue to protect them. Customers may not care about decade-old technology and a home-grown stack, but engineers like to maintain their marketability.

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