    Pros

    Transition to WFH because of COVID was a breeze since company was well prepared for employees to work remotely, very good benefits, very capable colleagues

    Cons

    Fails at being a tech company, disconnect ability to work between day-to-day and what senior leadership thinks, some overzealous middle managers that like to throw wrenches into processes just to mix things up

    Pros

    Good company. They really try to do the right thing for both customers and employees. Most managers are flexible and do what they can to help. Pay is pretty good and benefits are decent as well. 401k match is great, ESPP is also great.

    Cons

    Performance management is on a curve. Your rating may not match your performance expectation in order to fit a distribution. Managers do not have as much discretion as it appears. Also, expect your leadership to change a LOT. I've had 7 direct managers in 10 years and about a dozen dotted line managers. Priorities shift a few times per year. Because of the frequent changing, any goals that your group has set will likely be irrelevant within a few months. Most teams are on-call. Work/life balance can be difficult depending on the team and system(s) supported.
