Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Dolby full-time

Pros

Feel good with manager and work content

Cons

Salary is not good enough.

Current Employee - Engineering Manager

I have been working at Block full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I've worked at lots of other tech companies, from tiny startups to a big, sprawling brand name. Block (and specifically Square) is still far and away the best culture I've ever worked in. People are... really smart and hard working but not competitive. I never feel pressured to give up my work/life balance. There's a lot of room for individuals and teams to try new ways of working, new features, new products. Every team I work with is helpful and has a great attitude.

Cons

With so much autonomy for teams, it can be hard to get everyone "rowing together." If you want to succeed in any sort of a leadership role, you'll need to be good at making a convincing case for big... initiatives.
