Employee Review

  1. 5.0
    Current Employee, more than 5 years

    Excellent place to learn and grow. You get out what you put in. Definitely not for everyone (or even most people).

    Pros

    Surrounded by brilliant people committed to delivering excellent work above all else. Incredibly high bar for quality and a "whatever it takes" attitude towards getting there. Once you are established there is a lot of opportunity to forge your own path. Entrepreneurial environment where you are expected to find the problems to be working on and go after those.

    Cons

    The other side of the delivering excellent work above all else equation is people work really really hard and there are periods in which it can be a grind. The culture is not for everyone, if you don't handle ambiguous expectations and directions well and don't have a self-starter disposition towards work you may get stuck.

    Pros

    -Fosters a great culture of meaningful relationships -Feedback culture ensures you are never worried about if you are doing well/if people like you -Meaningful work is a priority -D&I is a priority -Very intelligent people -Efficiency is a huge focus -Excellent benefits; the company obviously genuinely cares for its employees -Great pay - usually higher than the market

    Cons

    -Most likely will go from feeling like a big fish in a small pond to feeling like a small fish in a big pond -The feedback culture is not for everyone, and the job will become very painful if you cannot get past the initial struggles with the culture -Your onboarding can make or break your success (which is also the case at many other companies)
