Great place to learn disciplined and structured software engineering, but can be too much structured.

Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsGreat benefits. The salary and benefits are quite competitive. Chance to work with some quite talented engineers. Broad product range provide flexibility to work on different areas based on interest.

ConsEngineering at some teams (especially older) can become too structured sometimes. There is not much room for innovation, and the rigid requirements can make the work feel boring sometimes. Hard to make significant contributions at the junior levels.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow some room for innovation and part time projects to retain talented people, especially at the beginner levels.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
