Great opportunity to work on Amazing technologies

Advisory Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

Pros- Intellectual freedom in Architecture, design and implementation
- Compute resources and associated technologies
- Office environment (ie. no cube-land)
- Accessibility to world class research and personel
- prestige

Cons- Mature environment (ie. gray ceiling), growth requires extra effort
- Some areas not focused on modern tools or enforcing best practices in SW engineering
- very poorly implemented bonus program

Advice to Senior Management- Please communicate more with employees on group strategy and directions. It's best for technical teams to know where they're going for technical and company buy-in.
- Bonus structure and salary are one of the primary causes for loosing key talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
