    Hard to describe

    Software (Former Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsNice, intelligent people all around.
    Usually friendly atmosphere.
    Great place to inspire and excite own ideas.

    ConsSomewhat paternalistic developments.
    Difficulties for me to associate with the brand itself.
    Not a great place to associate yourself with your own work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare more within the company and have checks and balances be more distributed.
    And give back more to the community/work more with the community.
