      Good Place to Work - Lots of Investment in Modernization of Software

      Nov 22, 2020 - Lead Software Engineer in Arlington, VA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Excellent job taking care of employees during COVID-19. Everyone is working remotely. We have had mental health days, home office reimbursements, and a wellness box. Also Senior Management has spent alot of their time having sessions open to all employees about different areas of the business. Lots of investment in modernizing our software this year and in the near future has created lots of opportunities for software engineers to learn new skills and to exchange ideas across teams. Benefits are also reasonably priced (employee contribution)

      Cons

      Planning and Budgeting process always seems chaotic.
