I get to work with smart people on interesting problems.

Software Developer III (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX

ProsI am able to work with a small group of very talented and smart people. We are able to create things that people use.

ConsThe layers between line-level employees and senior management are filled with a vast layer of goopy middle management that tends to slow things down and is constantly in a state of churn. The consequence of the middle management churn is that decisions carry little to no responsibility for those who made them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
