Pros

Management at the highest levels respect each other which trickles down throughout the organization. Expense reports always approved, quality of work more important than quality of work.

Cons

Budget approval process a bit opaque. People maybe too polite: people may not be as responsible as they should be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to delegate some authority further down the chain. Needing to go to House to get a new hire approved is too tedious.

    Pros

    Great compensation
    Great community involvement
    Really good culture
    Great work-life balance
    Lots of interesting technical challenges. There are a lot of opportunities to shine technically.

    Cons

    The technical stack is more evolved than designed. This means that it has a lot of quirks and pitfalls, and can be frustrating to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the core technology and site stability and less on new features.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, great people, a healthy work / life balance, and fun products make it a great place to work.

    Cons

    Dealing with legacy products and infrastructure can be painful. There is often not as much attention paid to rank and file as to the Director plus level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be quicker to to innovate and think outside the box. Be willing to get rid of legacy products and systems. Don't be afraid to rebuild and rethink.
