Featured Review

Current Employee - Product Manager

I have been working at Microsoft full-time

Pros

Pretty progressive culture. Flexible when and where you work (at least part of the week)

Cons

Flexible hours can mean flexing into your evening. Hybrid is annoying when LT won’t let employees work remotely by choice.

Advice to Management

Choose LT that actually believes in the mission. Not just someone who was successful at Microsoft and then boomeranged back into a CVP role.

Current Employee - Senior Account Manager

I have been working at Oracle full-time

Pros

I liked work there to

Cons

It didn’t pay very well
