    I have been working at uShip full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. Co-workers enjoy hanging out with each other. Smart people.

    Cons

    The company's goals and focus changes from year-to-year. There is not a consistent long term plan. Also, original fun culture is not sustainable as the company gets bigger.

    Advice to Management

    With the new dev leadership, there is a trend for more micro-managing. The leadership needs to trust there developers more.

    I have been working at uShip full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    "Open" vacation policy limited to 3 weeks Free meals are great, but they feel the need to warn everyone on a Slack channel when the health inspector arrives.

    Cons

    There has been a high turnover of employees, including the CEO. This appears to have led them give promotions to those who are not fit to be in leading positions in the engineering department. I have witnessed instances of the engineers being blamed for poor leadership. They also have lower coding standards compared to other places, even from the "senior" engineers. This is not a place to learn from the best.
