    I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Fast paced development environment with never a dull moment.
    - Great place for technology enthusiasts. Get to work with cutting edge technologies.
    - Weekly lunch and learn sessions helps people share knowledge across the development organization.
    - Great place for women in tech. Many women in strong leadership roles who are always willing to take time out to talk about their experiences and provide guidance.
    - Lots of great work to do building services on the public cloud. Management is very supportive of new software or technology stack you wish to use as long as it passes all security standards and is the right fit for the project.
    - Teams are very collaborative and everybody's input is valued. 'You build it, you own it' philosophy ensures that every team feels a strong sense of ownership towards everything they build.
    - Strong culture with lots of people passionate about what they do.
    - Annual 2-day tech summit emphasizes management's investment in technology.
    - Overall, I love going in to work with an amazing team and constantly working on new technologies and solving new problems.

    Cons

    These are a few things that teams should get better at working on and will get better as teams mature:
    - Things can get stressful at times with aggressive deadlines and unclear requirements. This can be avoided by the team pushing back early on if the deadlines seem unrealistic.
    - Rapid development and teams operating in silos often result in some last minute integration issues.
    - Work life balance is a challenge although it seems like it might be getting better as things stabilize a little bit.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the great work hiring good people and empowering long time employees to transition to new technologies.
    - Better planning and inter team communication would be a great step towards reducing last minute surprises. Managers/program managers should ensure that someone is coordinating between teams and communicating often to the team.
    - Please avoid changing managers so frequently. I understand these are growing pains and am hopeful that this will not be a continuing trend.
