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

        Pros

        - The vision and leading edge work makes Cyanogen compelling place to work.The modular OS program will now allow value, independence and intelligence to flow freely through the ecosystem. - Steep learning curve - Open and transparent culture brought it by new CEO and management - Lots of responsibilities...as much as you can handle - Work-Life balance is great - Employee friendly workplace culture

        Cons

        Cyanogen has grown and evolved. It may have seemed like the mission / direction of the company was confusing for a few months earlier in the year...but change and evolution are a natural part of a startup and many cynics with negative views have had to move on.

        Cons

        A lot of negative press around the company and its culture. Most of the rumors are not true but it's affecting recruitment and attracting talents. Before I joined I also read reviews on Glassdoor and other websites which made me have doubts. However, the reality is that the leadership put a lot of emphasis on culture throughout the organization. And if you ever visit the office you will see the dynamic and energetic vibe...
