    Pros

    Get to build up products using latest tech stack tools. Got to learn quiet a bit in my tenure
    Smart intelligent engineers
    Ownership of the product is given
    my Supervisor was good and considerate
    Engineering team is helpful. The superiors are helpful in making you understand how the code base works. That was great!
    Flat hierarchy for engineering division
    Free lunch
    Good pay

    Cons

    The engineers are made to interface with the customer support everyday, which hampers productivity and creates unnecessary pressure.
    The customer delight team takes time from the engineering division team to enforce their constraints. those two should be seperate
    The code base is huge, so the time taken to look at the perspective should be given .
    The most important thing was, the equipment given to a senior engineer was a Dell Inspiron 1525. I think the organization can provide better machinery if they want more productivity.
    The less inteference from tech support team would be an advantage
    Hire and fire policy is not justified. I think the load balancing should be done appropriately.

    The interviews for senior positions go on for 8 rounds or more. The engineers should be less burdened I think!

    Advice to Management

    Please do not let the business management interface with engineering team the way you guys do. It makes thinsg more complicated for the engineers.
