    I worked at Cradlepoint full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has some genuinely nice people working there in the engineering ranks.

    Cons

    It was a horrible experience. The C-Suite is weak, complicit and corrupt. The C-suite only hire in their top level friends and cronies. They have poor pay and some of the worst benefits in Idaho. They take advantage of people simply because they are based in Boise. The workplace is hostile, opinionated, and coercive. Projects and company direction is shoot from the hip without an overall strategy. They circle around company strategies over and over again without direction or vision. Finally it’s a fantastic place to get an experience of how a poorly managed and desperate company operates as you move on in your career.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Downtown office. Free snacks.

    Cons

    Benefits. very little 401k match, no bonuses. no stock awards unless you ask for them. Groups within r&D are very silo'ed. Promotions are a mystery. There is no clear path to getting promoted unless you are a member of the "good ol' boys" club.

    I have been working at Cradlepoint full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a Python shop. I get to work with some very cool open source tech. Docker, Kubernetes and there is a great mix of engineers to work with.

    Cons

    I am overworked and pay is below scale. Management is sneaky I never know if I am getting an honest answer or they are just clueless or worse, afraid. Seems to me that every decision has to be "approved" by the CTO and he is sending lots of work off shore. We he came on board, we fired some great leadership and the drain continues. I would ask for a raise but I am afraid that I will be let go, maybe that is fine.
