Pros

Good benefits, work life balance.

Cons

Week engineering team, not the real dream job you expect.
Seems like too many engineers trying to solve the same problem from different angles.

    Pros

    Pays well. Cash bonus is nice. ESPP and 401k match, too. Well established processes make build and check-in process easy.

    Cons

    Politics are insane. A few key individuals with terrible instincts and 1990's rechnology skills rule the day. For the past 18 months or so there has been a senior talant exodous as poor technical decisions are forced upon people and they must choose between a nice paying job and their happiness. If you can carve out a niche you can survive for a while but eventually you will need to conform. If you are happy there and see no problems, stay there because you'll fail all interviews at any other up-to-date companies.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house and reset. A desperate need for new talant is way over due. A hires A, B hires C; And all of your A has left. When the rest of the world goes left and you go right, is that because you are innovative or run by the wrong people....?
