      there are not many cons, to be honest, Chartboost is doing good, we grew well and are more mature. Improvement could be on the product side.

      Pros

      The mood is good. Junior friendly. No policies or processes, employees basically do what they want.

      Cons

      The engineering culture in some teams is very bad. People with no previous technical or management experience are put in engineering manager roles, leading to very bad practices. These people are good friends with top level management so they get more and more responsibility but are not accountable to anything. Some teams claim to do scrum but have waterfall management, Gantt charts and non deliverable epics that are never closed. Some core projects are a few years old and don't have any kind of end-to-end tests. Retrospectives don't have action points. There is no desire from anyone to improve, people just do things as the company always did and it just reinforces these bad practices. Managers give no incentive to creating quality software, and instead give ridiculous tasks and deadlines, take days or weeks to reply to critical questions about said tasks, and reward people who don't speak up and are just agreeable. There is never "time" to do anything about preventing the problems because everyone is always busy creating and cleaning after problems. This is not the path to progress.
