    Pros

    Fast growth. Some great managers. Always something interesting to work on, with the ability to move around to other teams, languages, and technologies. Encouraged conference attendance. Beautiful and convenient office locations. Office amenities targeted based on location (this is a plus and minus).

    Cons

    They hire nationally, but benchmark locally. Average compensation. Below average PTO. Working from home/remote rare or exceptional.

    Pros

    ***This is an update to my previous review.***

    I've been here going on two years, and New Relic is *still* my favorite place to work.

    I wanted to update my previous review, because two of the "cons" in my previous review have been addressed by the company:

    - Health insurance options. They changed health insurance providers and added an additional option. The net result is the health insurance coverage in Washington state are top notch, good quality offering at a decent rate. It is (now) definitely in line with other major companies in the area (in particular, it's as good as Amazon was when I worked there).
    - Office location. We've moved to our permanent office. Not only is it a great office, but it is much more centrally located and more accessible to transportation options. Only disadvantage transportation-wise to the new location is parking is more expensive than the old office.

    Cons

    Company is growing quite fast and I am concerned about growing pains -- will our culture continue as we grow? I know it will change, but will it get better or worse? This is an unknown at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing...keep concerned about impact of growth on the culture, but keep growing.
