    Salary for software engineers isn't as mind bogglingly high as some FAANG companies, but it is still more than fair IMO

    Pros

    Management through the founders are highly invested in their employees. As an example, through the COVID-19 pandemic, they have constantly reached out and forced employees to take time off to help alleviate the stress some are enduring from having to manage working from home and their families. For those that work in the office, a high functioning and desirable environment is created by providing their employees with breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks, ice cream, and even an open bar at the end of the day. They are also plenty of mental break opportunities from board games, pool, foosball, video games and more Atlassian lives, breathes and eats their values. The values aren't just some gimmick that get referenced when people feel it is convenient. These drive all of the work and commitments that are made. From a compensation and benefits perspective, they really take care of their employees. Their unlimited vacation is truly unlimited. As an employee in my first year, I was able to have time off around the holidays with my family, spend a week with my daughter in Cancun, as well as take other days off to enjoy other time. After leaving a company where I had accrued over 5 weeks/year, I didn't find myself at the bottom just working without anytime to enjoy life. They strongly promote a work/life balance. It is for these reasons and so many more that contribute to a healthy work environment and happy employees. I work with some of the best people. I am so happy to call myself an Atlassian!

    Cons

    Honestly, Atlassian is so refreshing from the powerhouse corporate company from which I previously worked that I have nothing bad to say.

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - You get the feeling that the company truly cares about its workers (it was especially apparent with the COVID-19 care of the workers) - Open culture no bs - Fun flexible environment - You can work from home or from wherever, as long as you do your work

    Cons

    - Its an Australian company, so it feels at times that we work in the periphery. Which being in Silicon valley is a weird feeling to have - Aside from the great company culture, if you get a sucky boss or a sucky team (which happens), your experience will be sucky. Having a good team and a good manager is the key. Which sadly doesn't always happen
