    Former Employee, more than 10 years

    Lots of autonomy

    Dec 1, 2022 - Engineering Group Leader in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You get way more autonomy than most other places other than start ups. Which is great if you like that (and obviously not if you dont do well figuring out how to make yourself valuable).

    Cons

    The organization is pretty heterogeneous by design, a down side to high autonomy is that theres less oversight which means you can end up in bad pocket and broad cohesion is a lot of work.

    Pros

    Role definitions are not limiting, you can create your own role if you see a problem and go after it.

    You can get mired in a part of the business that is subject to a cult of personality and fail to have success.

    Engaging work, bad WLB

    Oct 10, 2022 - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Really smart people - Get to work on things that very few people/companies get exposure to - Bleeding edge technology

    Cons

    - Horrible WLB - Fair share of egotistical people; this could be common with top talent in tech. - Questionable morality in certain silos. Some teams work with organizations on missions you know are good for the world, some you aren’t sure about.
