great place to work

Software Engineer III (Former Employee) Boulder, CO

ProsGreat work-life balance, interesting work, interesting people, beautiful location, great benefits especially for parents (generous family sick leave plan). Excellent 403b plan with TIAA-CREF with 5% contribution required matched by 10%; vested immediately. Low turnover.

ConsWorking in the basement and only seeing daylight at lunch. Low-turnover sometimes means fewer new ideas. Funding uncertainty is affecting morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue what you are doing. It's a great place to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
