    Business is short-sighted and devotes insufficient resources to developing a robust, maintainable product

    Pros

    Usually great communication between different teams within operations, much better than a few yeras ago.
    Flexible hours, most employees allowed to WFH 1+ days a week.

    Cons

    Senior management rarely present, shows almost no concern for rank and file workers or their projects.
    Product development doesn't understand operations very well. When enhancements are requested, PD will commit to delivering the enhancements, then never follow through. All PD work is purely business driven. This is understandable for a startup, but not for an established company of this size. It is only by pure luck that we haven't suffered more outages as a result of PD's & Business not spending more time on implementing best practices in regards to maintainability of PD's products.
    QA is also chronically underfunded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to Operations. Fund QA.

    Pros

    Quick paced work life !! Senior management is pretty open to ideas, that however depends on the individual teams. Overall, nice place to work .

    Cons

    I have heard of internal politics in a few teams and that feedback is not received from the bottom up .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they should start to get a review of the managers from the sub-ordinates too. And there are too many org-changes .
