      Great benefits and culture

      Pros

      Hires the best talent so you’re always surrounded by incredibly smart and driven people - that are also humble and kind. You won’t find any “coasters” here. Great benefits and competitive salary. Incredible, gourmet free food on-site.

      Cons

      To be determined whether this will be a con, but I would love to see them implement more new benefits for the “new normal” work from home environment to replace the amazing on-site benefits they offered when the offices are open. I’m sure it’s in the works, time shall tell!

      Seems great on the outside, no so great on the inside

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Excellent benefits, and I don't mean the free food. The healthcare, 401k matching, parental leave, etc is really great and one of the main reasons I've stayed around so long.

      Cons

      Things seem shiny and exciting at first. After awhile you see how poorly trained some of the middle management it. Teams and orgs are constantly being restructured - someone always has a "better" way to do things, which means the individual contributer employees sustain the force of the constant changes. It's difficult in many orgs to get promoted. Lots of work to do, but little reward. The recruiting and hiring process is SO LACKING. I've applied to several internal positions, and each recruiter I've dealt with knew absolutely nothing about me before speaking - and I mean nothing. As time goes on, I'm less and less proud of our product. The highest complaint drivers never get changed. So many things I wish we could do differently
