Fair

Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros+ Work life balance
+ Owns entire technology stack

Cons- Promotion depends on political climate of your team/org
- Teams fight turf war to keep their political capital (visibility of features, etc.)

Advice to Senior ManagementThin out the bureaucracy. Have less meaningless meanings. Be more data driven, not political driven.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
