      Best job I've ever had.

      Pros

      Company really stresses and lives by its core values. Upper management is open about what's happening. Work/life balance is amazing. Company really tries to take care of its employees - it added an extra week of "Wellbeing" days to help people adjust for COVID. Compensation is comparable to the top tier companies (even after the IPO).

      Cons

      Office is still closed due to Covid with very distant plans to reopen - I miss the office.

      Pros

      Good work-life balance, and the company generally does a good job at not hiring jerks.

      Cons

      A designer-driven company with an aversion to any kind of data-driven design - or even collecting data on user behavior. As an engineer, expect to be treated like a fungible cog, unless your manager really has your back and knows how to use political subterfuge to keep you safe.
