Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer  in  Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at New Relic full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Fantastic people, very much a "family"
- Serious commitment to work-life balance (from CEO on down)...*no* expectation to work over 40 hours a week
- Smart leadership, tech-savvy VPs and CEO
- Absolute concern about employees welfare
- Fun and enjoyable projects...stimulating work technically
- Startup atmosphere and benefits, but financial stability of an established company

Cons

- Poor health insurance options in Seattle (brand new office, needs more health options)
- Seattle office is in an inconvenient location for bus/train lines and auto commuters (temporary -- looking for new office in better location)

    Pros

    Customers really love the product! Excellent engineering work environment, NR expects 40 hrs a week and that you will take the time to leave software better than you found it. Low meeting-to-work ratio, rapidly growing with lots of opportunities to grow, management that is focused on long-term cultivation.

    Cons

    Evolving office process and team structure due to ongoing growth can leave you feeling like things are constantly adjusting. If you're comfortable with that, great!
