Employee Review

  1. 4.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    A good first job experience, but little room for development or growth

    Pros

    - Generally, I loved my team. The people were overall a plus - The food stipend I got was a nice benefit for a time - The benefits were generally good and the autonomy to take breaks from the desk were appreciated

    Cons

    - The organization clearly prioritized developers over other engineers and technical resources, which was demoralizing - Their upper management seemed pretty incompetent while I was there, but I believe that it was on an upward trend by the time I left - It was a less professional, more casual tech startup environment- one which, at times , felt a bit fratty and informal. I believe this may have limited my development while I was there. - Workplace culture (later hours, mainly stock-based comp, many manual processes that were labor intensive, stocked booze cart and seamless benefits) created a place that people had issues checking out from, and the "unlimited flex" PTO for employees meant that employees with a book of business were pressured to not take time off. it was very unhealthy - you will discover little upwards mobility once you hit the 2-3 year mark - for certain positions, comp was well under market value. I wish I had shopped around earlier to see similar comps earlier in my tenure

    Stay Away… unless you desperately need work.

    Pros

    -Solid offices across the globe. -Flexibility to work remotely.

    Cons

    -Lots of turnover of great people with zero communication about it which hits morale hard. - Seems to be a lot of career stagnation and lack of manager investment in helping everyone on their teams - A general lack of friendliness and a "we're on the same team". Plenty of instances of people projecting their stress and anxieties on others in not-so-nice ways. Lack of empathy in many parts of the culture that I've experienced - No one seems to have a good work life balance and there is a lot of poor systems that create more work overall that could be avoided with better internal communication and alignment - The culture generally just feels down when you are in smaller groups where people can be honest, and falsely positive elsewhere.
