    Pros

    I feel like my inputs are highly valued and management listens to everything I say. I do not feel like another "cog in a machine," rather I feel like all of my opinions matter. It's a fun place to work with smart, driven co-workers. I don't feel like the hire anybody who would risk dragging down a team by doing on the bare minimum.

    The perks are top-notch, and the benefits package is great. Combine the perks and benefits with equity bonuses, and my salary feels higher than it really is, since I never have to worry about packing a lunch or paying my own cell phone bill. Work/life balance is great, and I feel free to come in late or leave early whenever I need to, or work from home if I need to.

    Cons

    Many other teams feel like there is not a lot of room for advancement, or that they hire too much from the outside rather than promoting from the inside. I don't feel like my team suffers from that, but it can be a con when other employees have complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing things the way you are, and continue to remember the core values that got us all here.

    Pros

    A lot of smart people excited by what they are doing, awesome work-life balance, culture fosters learning and having fun (within reason).

    Cons

    In the last couple of years the Eng organization has transitioned to a new model: Multiple autonomous teams, working in parallel on what often is redundant systems. You will be doing production support for your app. If you are in a one-person team, you will be doing it alone. Even though your code is perfect, your phone may ring in the middle of the night alerting you to the fact that the monitoring software developed by the Eng Ops group is hung on your cluster. But it will be your phone, not theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up all the cultural initiatives. But understand that these "autonomous teams" need help doing their job. Right now the 200 person engineering department looks like a combination of 40 5-person start-ups.

    Pros

    - challenging work
    - innovative culture
    - great perks
    - top of the line benefits
    - friendly leadership
    - FREE food

    Cons

    - business hours are 9-6. It's a very flexible work environment and if you have to leave early you can but because other team members work late, it's hard to get out the door sometimes. The culture has been shifting to be more and more flexible. In time, this probably won't be an issue at all.

    Advice to Management

    no complaints here. Leadership is very effective. They listen and always transparent. Very important values.

    Pros

    Wonderful office culture. Upbeat and fun. Great intern benefits--well paid, networking dinners, etc. Regularly met with upper management to discuss my progress. Transparency is huge there--there are even weekly meetings with the entire company and the CEO is actually pretty funny and approachable, even to an intern.
    Plus, Austin is a great place to live--always something fun to do

    Cons

    Austin is fun, but really hot in the summer

    Pros

    Great employee benefits. Fantastic talent all around. Innovative thinking encouraged and rewarded.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours but that is to be expected in a fast moving retail company.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of hiring from the outside (name brand resumes) instead of promoting from within.

    Pros

    Great culture, perks, and work environment. Everyone is friendly. I have interesting, challenging work and smart colleagues who help develop my career. Sometimes the pace can be slow but it varies, along with the type of work, which I like.

    Cons

    As an intern, I am worried about the brand if I work there full time, since I could have opportunities with much bigger name companies. But as far as the company itself, no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Leadership is very transparent and shares its vision with all employees. They value everyone at the company. Coworkers are fun-loving, innovative, and happy. The perks are amazing - RMN provides lunches, breakfast twice a week, tons of snacks, awesome company parties, gym & cell phone reimbursement. The offices are really fun to work in - very open environment, beautiful patio.

    Cons

    You cannot work remotely, culture is you have to be here in the office.

    Pros

    It's great to work somewhere that's winning its market; and management seems committed to staying ahead of the competition by putting together the best engineering team possible. That means not only great coworkers whom I learn from and who raise the bar for me; but also really excellent compensation and working environment.

    Cons

    Some consider the downtown location a minus (I think it's great personally).
