    Pros

    Interview process seemed fair and egalitarian. Minimal process / no excessive meetings and still feel successfully onboarded. Love the atmosphere and community. It is easy to ask for help.

    Cons

    More of a nit than something debilitating: tech debt. It is one area that we are actively improving.

    Decent work/life balance, reactive/messy, lack of transparency

    Pros

    - Decent benefits for wellness - You'll get the opportunity to work with some very smart and collaborative teammates - The company has been financially doing well and profitable for the last several quarters

    Cons

    - Complete lack of transparency from the exec team. Execs mandate that folks write their names next to questions they submit for all-hands or they "won't answer it". It's completely valid and fair for people to not want to tie their names to questions given the power dynamic at play there. Management expects transparency from the entire company, but are not willing to be transparent themselves about company level initiatives like compensation reviews, DEI...etc. For example, we did an entire exercise last fall around compensation review to make sure that we're being competitive with the market. Between January - March, management team completely ceased communication around this topic including avoiding the question when it's been asked in engineering and company all hands. - Reactive culture: when key people churn on a team, then it becomes a priority to build up the team even though the red flags were there for multiple quarters - Lack of comms around attrition. Exec wants to keep attrition and departures hush hush and as a result, some people don't find out that a co-worker they collaborate with has left the company until an email bounces or you see that their slack has been de-activated. - DEI: We hired several engineering and data science leads in the last quarter and not a single hire was a woman. The company is also not willing to put a DEI metric in company or team OKRs - Competing cultures between 3 different companies. - High expectations around shipping features and products w/o giving the team the sufficient headcount it needs
