Pros

Great perks, benefits and smart people. The company's performance year over year is tremendous and that creates a healthy environment around the office.

Cons

Unorganized, internal promotions are not common, many job roles do not allow for upward mobility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on promoting from within and not so much on the "pedigree" of external hires.

    Great if you're in a department with some upward mobility

    Pros

    Flexible PTO, casual environment, young workforce, corporate transparency, time off

    Cons

    A lot of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. If you have dental background you will fare better since some projects are like pulling teeth. Some upper management feel the need to brag about their business trips or work from home without the need to lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for upward mobility.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people to learn from and not many jerks. Fantastic benefits like 4 weeks vacation. Continuous effort to define software best practices and figure out how to get there. Plenty of interesting projects going on. You get a lot of recognition and reward if you deliver something truly innovative or game changing.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary depending on which manager/VP you report up to. People assigned teams with lots of technical debt tend to get stuck there without opportunities to advance or take on green field projects. High functioning teams are often split up to staff new projects. The dev organization is wrestling with the effects of growth and hasn't yet found the most efficient model.
