    Excellent place to work!

    Pros

    Smart, effective, and kind coworkers. Short on workplace politics, high on intellectual honesty, excellent culture. I had a great manager and plenty of opportunities for growth. Compared to competitors, AFAIK: --relatively open and collaborative internally --the only firm I know of without a noncompete, but turnover remains low

    Cons

    They have been trying pretty hard on D&I stuff, but it's still not where anyone wants it to be. Not sure how JS compares to the rest of the industry in this regard, though.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits. The office is wonderful, and the food is amazing!

    Cons

    Not very transparent with upward mobility. Exit opportunities are sub-par due to the nature of the engineering problems solved. More senior people kind of ignore others. I have had several messages ack'd by senior employees only to ultimately be ignored
