Great place to work

Developer (Current Employee)
Alexandria, VA

ProsIt's a great environment to solve problems. The management really cares about it's employees and the benefits show that.

ConsThere's a lot of dead weight. Turnover is very low because it's a great place to work. Management, seemingly, gets attached to employees that have either outlasted their value or were never valuable to begin with. This demotivates "high-performers" and makes it difficult to hire and retain quality employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementNetflix, steal their ideas. Fire people that don't perform 20% above the mean.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
