    I have been working at Pluralsight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is absolutely amazing. My wife and I just had a baby 3 months after I started, and both my team and everyone in management that I have interacted with has been very excited and supportive of me taking parental leave, even this soon after starting. They don't just pay lip service, they really do hold true to the company values and prioritize the human aspect of their employees. They have been very careful with regards to covid-19, and have been transparent in the decision making related to it. They have continued to exhaust all other options before even addressing layoffs. They really do prioritize the health and safety of their employees and it shows. I also feel very empowered even as a newer employee that I can contribute and be valued.

    Cons

    We're going through some organizational changes at the moment, and there is always some confusion and uncertainty when that happens, but they're handling it well.

    I worked at Pluralsight full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation and healthcare benefits. Equipment provided. Team lunches and company-wide lunches.

    Cons

    Rampant favoritism. Applicants can easily be passed over for reasons unrelated to qualifications. The care they have for employees only runs skin-deep. Aggressive management processes.

    I have been working at Pluralsight full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pluralsight is setting a higher standard for how software is built. The product, design and engineering processes in place here are, simply put, phenomenal. In particular, I can speak to the engineering culture, principals and overall system architecture. There is always room to grow but I am seriously impressed with the engineering principals practiced. This is the first company I've worked where teams are able to be fully autonomous due to the implementation of bounded contexts and data sharing through Kafka. The culture is great so far and I look forward to a long career with PS.

    Cons

    Part of engineering practices here at Pluralsight is code pairing. I do think there is a large benefit to the team when code is paired on but it does take some getting used to. I think the amount of time spent pairing varies between teams but my experience is that we often pair times when it might be more appropriate to work independently. Aside from that my experience thus far has been really really positive!

    Currently going thru a reorg and this lends itself to some uncertainty - but leadership has been extremely open about the process. Also turnover of some great product leadership, so hoping we will find some amazing leaders to continue to lead

    Pros

    Culture, Leadership, Opportunity, Environment, Energy

    Cons

    Haven't really found many yet, but one thing I have seen is growing pains and org shifts. Changing who you report up to or even directly too seems to happen frequently, which can be unsettling.
