Back in days there was a very warm welcome and enthusiasm. I felt like I hade a second family. Basically friendly people and professional great team members that support you in your job. Not too bad not too good benefits.
In my opinion, all started to go down the hill with introduction of new VP of engineering. Pressure was immediately felt after shuffling team members around and creating new teams. Culture of LearnUpon is gone. After couple of months, instead of working on planned tasks and projects/features, new things jumped in almost every sprint. The sprint itself and whole Agile lost its purpose. We had a lay off under the excuse of cost. Almost all of the QA people got fired (except one, luckily) and also a couple of Developer. All of the QA job was transferred to us. That being said, it seems that LearnUpon is following big tech path of firing people with more pressure on people that stay, with more tasks and with shorter timelines. Most of Developers are from Serbia, but it seems that majority of people fired are from Serbia. We were not allowed to know who got fired and since we all work from home is was a tense situation. Even more strange is that they fired excellent Senior Developer probably to introduce fear into other Senior Developers that we are also replaceable. Explanation was that they need to cut costs but at the same time, they are posting new jobs for same Developer roles in Ireland where base salary is 3 to 4 times bigger than in Serbia. I still remember CEO crying on a call when he was explaining all the firing of the people. From that moment till now we got a couple of high paying positions. 2 new VPs for departments one Senior Staff Engineer7LearnUpon Response5mo
