Youthful spirit

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsYouthful spirit, smart friendly professional people, sense of humor, great benefits, fun place to work, flexible working hours, cutting edge technologies, challenging assignments, constant learning.

ConsChanges in technologies, teams, structures, goals and directions come too often
and on a regular basic.
It may be hard to learn and adjust and be productive at the same time.
Too much multitasking and too many different responsibilities for each Software Engineer.
It makes it challenging to concentrate and difficult to perform each duty with high quality.
OK for some people, not so for others.
Business is very complex. Many processes to adhere to. It takes between 6 and 12 months
to learn enough to become fully productive.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify annual evaluation process. Nobody likes it. Other than that, no complaints.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
