    Pros

    Not much work
    Some Good people still left
    Some products are really good
    Good amount of traffic still
    News and editorial is good
    Good engineers

    Cons

    No vision
    Aged leadership
    Bad CTO who doesnt understand modern tech or does not have clarity of thought
    Bureaucratic
    No promotions based on merit
    No appraisals
    The company is dying

    Advice to Management

    AB was good but the company of people like the CTO has killed his competitive mind. He need to get a younger team that can help steer the company in the right direction

    Pros

    1. Working with big data.
    2. Learning about scalability.
    3. Always remember about optimization.
    4. Work pressure, if you're in a good team.
    5. Working with responsibility and ownership from the first day.
    6. Humble work culture.
    7. Good HR policies.
    8. If you work / learn well, be sure you'll get very good exposure within next 2 years, specifically from other product based companies.

    Cons

    1. Pay package is low if you don't have a good package already. Hell and heaven difference between x's package and y's package. Though x, y both work on the same.
    2. Work, performance not related to your package at all. No balance is there.
    3. Politics are there, if you're in bad team.

    Advice to Management

    1. Please leave the old guys who goes to sleep in their car at the afternoon, forgetting that their car and everything they earned just because once upon a time they worked well.
    2. Give a minimum time to keep the transparency between management and engineers. There are lots of big tasks which are done by engineers and reported to the management as a credit of the lead engineer of that project whereas the lead's contribution is < 0.01 in the same.

  11. Overall good in terms of responsibility and pay

    Pros

    Good responsibility on engineering / product development side, Good pay

    Cons

    Not great work culture, internal politics

    Advice to Management

    Should offer well defined career opportunity, It feels like top 3 people decide everything in company and rest of 400 people have to follow.
