Pros

Great purpose as to the work I do. Work life balance is great. The organization is doing such interesting work, all with the feel of a startup but with the positives a large company brings

Cons

HR isn't really your friend

    I worked at FreeWheel full-time

    Pros

    -Stepping stone to other companies
    -Stepping stone to other internal teams
    -Builds network
    -Managers actually do work
    -Some colleagues are really great
    -FreeWheel has a good reputation in the market
    -Basic snacks and drinks you'll find at every tech company
    -Flexible hours

    Cons

    Management:
    -While managers do work they cannot manage people, most are first time managers
    -There will not be a true vested interest in your development, career path, or you as a person
    -Managers on the same team give different feedback/messages. Constantly contradicting each other
    -Management provides false promises to fit their own hidden ulterior motives

    Culture:
    -No work/life balance! People work from 9am-9pm in the office, all night outside of the office, and Sunday nights
    -Deteriorating culture, all pessimistic-legacy employees coasting while looking for new roles
    -Comcast owns you, the policies, the corporate trainings and more and more of the culture (not a positive). This is not the company it was even a couple years ago
    -Most of the talent has left

    Miscellaneous:
    -Vastly underpaid compared to the market
    -No career growth
    -They hire from the outside, they do not promote from within
    -No proper training for your role, the team, or projects you work on
    -In this hybrid role you never become a true technical expert and never become a true consultant
