Great product successes but difficult to succeed, and grow given structure, politics and processes.

Cons

Engineers feel like 2nd class citizens.
People under promise, and only do what is asked of them. Risky otherwise
Work happens in silos.

Some teams are treated better than others.
Lack of caring for employees.

    Pros

    Open, friendly environment filled with a lot of proactive individuals. People work until they get their projects complete but also know how to balance work and add a bit of team building into the mix.

    Cons

    It really depends on your manager. Since it was recently acquired earlier in the year, there has been some communication gaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your Directors are checking in with their team once in a while.

    Pros

    You meet some halfway decent people there. It makes the stress less.

    Cons

    1. High School mentality. Only the "cool kids" get ahead or recognized.
    2. Sweatshop mentality: Just crank out everything and don't complain
    3. Management is EXTREMELY hands off.
    4. Management asks your opinion but you're passive aggressively crucified for your thoughts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually consider what people are telling you, rather than just listening.
    The people who actually care are the ones who are more than likely leaving.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
