    Pros

    The team likes to problem solve, believe in the mission and have fun. In the past year there has been a decent amount of house cleaning on the engineering side. There were engineers who didn’t do anything, showed up to RCAs meetings not knowing why their service was down and refused to put in more than 30 hours a week. The team had to pick up their slack. It almost seemed like they didn’t have basic problem-solving skills or the desire to learn. Glad most of them are gone!

    Cons

    This has been a journey though and we continue to learn and evolve. Strong engineers will help raise the bar.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
