      Pros

      NA. Tbh, nothing. Someone may say it has work life balance. My experience is if you are on call, you will not sleep one week per month. That’s in line with Amazon.

      Cons

      1. The pay is in the bottom of industry. After 5 years hard work, the salary is less than other companies’ entry level job. 2. The immigration assistance is really bad. The lawyer screw up your application very often and won’t say sorry to you due to their fault. They even collaborate with management to intimidate foreign employees when employees complain about lawyer. This is real and my personal experience. I was forced to say sorry to the lawyer just because I complain about her, otherwise I would lose job.

      Great benefits, decent pay, good opportunities to grow within, good amount of vacation days.

      There can exist a massive lack of communication between directors/managers and the rest of the team, raises aren't given as frequently as expected, teams can sometimes get overly bureaucratic.

      Good engineering company -- milage may vary per team

      Apr 30, 2021 - Software Engineer III in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Good work life balance, working from home normal even before covid - Decent benefits, 401k match, ESPP, dental/vision/HSA included - Lunch stipend (when in office) - Depending on your team, mostly modern tech stacks Newer teams will be using mostly a node, vue.js + typescript stack which has a lot of tooling built up around it. Python is also fairly prevalent, but there is also a lot of older c++ code for more infrastructural products.

      Cons

      - Pay is okay, but not great - Not a ton of transparency into compensation - In general communication from upper management could be better

      Great place to work!

      Pros

      Highly team-oriented with an emphasis on both personal and team goals. Wide variety of opportunities and learning is encouraged. Wonderful benefits and perks (free lunch!) Very competitive salaries.

      Cons

      Specific to Norwalk CT location: commute traffic is horrible. Maybe not a con, but extra hours often just "happen" because you WANT to get your work done, not because you are told to work extra.
