Great devs but too many PMs hurting the company

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

ProsBreadth of technologies you can work on, good resources, good salaries and benefits, good development centers in many cities, smart peers

ConsToo much internal fighting, more competition with folks inside rather than outside, too PM focused, weak leadership promoting mediocre culture, too many non-code writing folks creating useless processes to prove their worth in-turn slowing down the company

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't promote false sense of success. Promote leaders only on producing actual business results, reduce number of PMs and make the company more dev centric which is how Google, Amazon, Facebook and other companies are operating.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
