Smart, passionate people working together for a common goal.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsPeople here are generally smart and passionate about what they do.
The company cares about its employees and tries to provide opportunities for advancement and education.
The company is always tackling interesting projects and hard problems, there is always a lot of challenging work that needs to be done if you know where to look.
Overall I consider it a very good place to work.

ConsInterdepartmental cooperation is not what it should be.
It is unclear what (if any) value some middle managers are contributing.
The company does a bad job of firing unproductive individual contributors or managers; people tend to just linger indefinitely while continuing to be unproductive.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you are actually getting value from your middle managers and individual contributors. Don't be afraid to fire people who are just collecting a paycheck. There are plenty of skilled and talented people who would like to work here, let's not settle for less than the best.

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