I have been working at Turn full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Managers and senior engineers are helpful. People around are interesting and willing to teach you everything they know. Unlike other startups, Turn gives you sufficient time to catch up.

Cons

Not anything that I don't like so far. I wish we could have larger work space.

    Pros

    Great Technology stack, Good People, A good place to learn

    Cons

    Company has lost a lot of key folks in the last six months, mainly due to ineptitude of the executive team. Software companies rely on people to succeed, not wild ideas. Executive team has a lot of in-fighting, and has led to recent departures of several key people including the VP of HR.

    There is consistent clashes for managing engineering resources, the product team is full of people who have no clue about technology - cronyism is rampant in the team and have never built a product in their life, there are more program managers than needed.

    There are still stars in the company, but executive team need to understand to retain people and not play politics which reminds of Yahoo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus. Respect hard work. Be humble and not try to invent stuff.

    Neutral Outlook
