      Below average tech company experience

      Jan 20, 2021 - Professional Services Manager in San Jose, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you've worked in tech, you already know the pros. Competitive salary and very good benefits. Nice facilities. Flexible work arrangements. Growth mission; high energy. The highly technical people are generous with their time and genuinely interested in the company's performance and reputation and there is real talent in the workforce.

      Cons

      Mediocre management and excessive leadership turnover in some areas. Limited chance of anything other than advancement via battlefield promotion; also typical of tech, you are expected to bootstrap your career development. Extremely cliquish; it is easy to feel like you are out of the loop. Remote employees that can't travel at their own discretion struggle with visibility and access. It is difficult to feel positively about the direction of a company that goes public and the private again in a 30-month period.

      Lots of technical debt

      Feb 19, 2021 - Software Engineer in Dallas, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good initial compensation, great work/life balance, good benefits.

      Cons

      A lot of the engineering budget is focused in Tel Aviv, if you are outside, don't expect to work on any innovative projects. Most of the technology is 10+ years old with years of accumulated technical debt and bugs. Like many other big companies, there are some people that truly care and are competent that keep things moving forward, while others sit back and ride the coattails. Also lots of restructuring and constant changes.
