No team work

Senior Software Development Engineer (Current Employee) Bellevue, WA

ProsGood salary, good benefits. Private office for each person.

ConsDepends on the team you land in, you may have difference experiences, but based on the review system, people negatively compete and it may get political and instead of trying to change the world, you end up being a politician, and forget the teamwork. They are many failure teams but because of other good teams, company still stands. So it is very crucial to know the team your joining before you accept the offer. And also make sure you ask for the review system because it will surprises you if you are a team player kind of person who sacrifices whereas the review system which is based on your individual shining and visibility. If you get to one of those teams, you end up more that 50% of your time on review system which takes your productivity and meaning the entire team down because it is the same story for all. There is a rumor they will change this broken review system in the following years, but no proof of that yet.

Advice to Senior ManagementA good manager should take of all these instead of putting it to everybody's shoulder. Anything that brings moral and productivity down and kills motivation and innovation should be avoided. This review system is against all the goodies of team work and a good manager should filter the team not infected with this.
