    Pros

    Offices have been really well run at times, some teams within Granular are bright driven and there for the right reasons.

    Cons

    Kinda the worst of both worlds (no longer a startup but still REALLY disorganized but without the big company pay or perks) rapid turnover, few original members of Granular are still with the company, pockets of really confused teams, leadership easily influenced by technobabble, offices jockeying for power, integration of Corteva has not gone well, jerks are tolerated and promoted, communication among teams and offices is not at all managed well, apps themselves apparently have technical issues.

    I have been working at Granular full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - People here at all levels are passionate about serving growers...company has very deep domain expertise in agriculture, permeating all aspects of day to day work - Company cares for employee's opinions and development and seems to work hard at soliciting and incorporating them - As a relatively new employee. I found the entire onboarding process very thoughtfully conceived, with many HR and Dept employees owning specific roles and an comprehensiveness that helped me get up to speed very quickly. I found this a good indication/signal of good things to come...

    Cons

    None as of now :-)

    I have been working at Granular full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone owns what they work on. Everyone generally has a voice in the product and codebases they work on—a direct product of the trust and respect given team members. We don't hire people to simply perform tasks; we hire to add unique perspectives and skills to the team. We value the human, not the pedigree. We also have the freedom to organize our teams as we see fit, rather than specific processes being codified for all teams. Granular is in a transitionary period, having been acquired by DowDuPont a few years ago, then recently spun out under the Corteva arm of that corporate stew. Thankfully, what could have been a chaotic, bureaucratic situation turned out not to affect our day-to-day operations very much at all. We still feel very much like a separate entity, one that is maturing into a "real" company after several years as a startup. Granular's identity was not swallowed up by the conglomerate and erased. Senior leadership is incredibly transparent. Regular all-hands meetings contain detailed financial information about the health of our company and how we're tracking budget-wise, in addition to presentations on all the cool stuff people are working on. There is a ton of effort put forth to ensure every individual is given the resources to grow in their role, career, and as a person. We have people on staff whose entire job it is to make sure we're all learning and developing. That blew my mind when I first started.

    Cons

    There are things that I like about our office space (the garden wall, the natural light, the food!), but there isn't any space that's designated for quiet. Open office plans are a divisive topic, but pretty much every engineer I've ever worked with has hated them. They can be livable, though, if there is a place with library rules. Our space does lend itself to teamwork sometimes and that's valuable, but we need an environment that's conducive to heads-down flow, too.
