Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

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

Pros

- Paired Programming means you have a teammate who can take over when you're stumped - Business and Design sit right next to you so you can understand WHY features are important - Very flat... hierarchy (the person who interviewed me was a Principal Engineer and I didn't realize this for two months) - As a contracted programmer, you can dip your toe into several other industries Pivotal encouraged me not just to speak up, but also share my ideas. There is no boss to bark orders and set unrealistic expectations. Instead you're encouraged to think and express yourself. An extremely open culture that encourages you to learn from teammates, other disciplines and learn a lot of skills.

Cons

- Paired Programming means you must be able to communicate clearly - Other teams are next to you, so it may get very loud and hard to listen - Flat hierarchy means you have to speak to many... teammates to get a decision - As a contractor, you may be assigned to work on companies/industries you don't like Extreme Programming isn't for everyone. Paired Programming isn't for everyone. You may find it too invasive, or you may involve too much communication and you just want to code. Hours are 9am-6pm, salary is around industry average (I turned down a job I could have gotten $15K more for this because I liked the culture.) And Pivotal Labs really believes in Extreme Programming, so your next job may not practice that, putting you at a disadvantage.

Advice to Management

Make it clear to newcomers: carrying context on your projects is extremely important. I was assigned to a project that used Kotlin (which I never used) which is based on Java (which I haven't used in... over a decade) on IntelliJ (which I never used.) Didn't matter as long as I could explain what I could do the day before.

Marketing

I have been working at Cyphort for less than a year

Pros

Exciting, fun place to work. A lot is happening and you get to help on a lot of different projects. The culture is really collaborative. The company is growing fast and it is a great time to be in... the security industry. A lot of talented people that you can learn a lot from. People are willing to help if you ask. Compensation is competitive and lots of flexibility.

Cons

Not much to complain/con about. Probably not "traditional" startup if that is what you are used to or looking for.
