    I have been working at Move full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly casual work environment. We get a lot done and have lots of freedom in our CI pipeline and what tools we use. The company uses AWS for hosting and you have full access to spin up and configure any servers/tools you want. Salaries are very competitive for the Vancouver area, and hard work is recognized with raises.

    Cons

    Upper management has an agenda and is not open to debate. They have a vision, for better or worse. While the company has a dedicated Systems team to handle DevOps stuff like tools and servers; they are utterly useless and you will end up deploying new tools yourself. Although the company will recognize hard workers with appropriate salaries, everyone is a "Senior" developer so there isn't much title recognition.

    I have been working at Move full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, reliable with competitive salaries for the local marketplace.
    High staff retention, many employees with over 10 years of service.
    Collaboration between teams is reasonable.
    Work-life balance is good for a high tech company. Evening and weekend working is rare.
    For those that want it, a career path is available for those who want to move into technical, team leadership or management.

    Cons

    Corporate red tape and lack of co-operation between different parts of the organization can make it difficult to get your job done.
    High turnover of senior executives and management in head office causes disruption.

    I have been working at Move full-time

    Pros

    It's exciting that realtor.com app which is used by millions is at the forefront of the trends and we get to work on some pre-release features of Android thanks to the partnership with Google. Because of that, the team also gets to attend conferences like Google I/O, Google Cloud Next and more to learn and keep up to date with all the new stuff.

    Cons

    Being located in Vancouver and the upper management being in Santa Clara does create some gaps at times. Apart from this the company does not have a strong culture.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people. Not just in Silicon Valley but elsewhere too including Vancouver. I'd also suggest developing a culture, currently we don't seem to have any.
