Featured Review

Former Employee - Team Lead

I worked at Block full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Love this company. Great mission, values and like minded teammates who work hard and support each other. Rewarding work that’s constantly growing and changing.

Cons

HR was constantly learning from mistakes over the years. Managers had difficulty hiring quality candidates at competitive salaries. Wasted months interviewing.

Current Employee - Engineering Manager

I have been working at SmartThings full-time for less than a year

Pros

* Great management * Very bright co-workers * Remote work * Flexible work schedules * Competitive salaries * Organization that continues to evolve to keep up with latest technologies * Support... from a parent company - ensures overall stability * Excellent resources for support - there are always other employees who are willing to help out to answer questions * Great benefits

Cons

* You have to be willing to be flexible and self-motivated * No kitchen snacks as a remote employee! However, there is a monthly budget for fun team activities. * Occasional late night meetings... with overseas counterparts

Advice to Management

Keep making the hard decisions to ensure we continue being able to work on cutting edge technologies.
