      Pros

      The initial first 2 weeks of my onboarding with my new colleagues and team have been very welcoming, and beyond my expectations. Virtual sessions with the US colleagues were well-organized, and everyone is very open to share their experiences and learnings with me. Technical team is definitely very profound and highly competent in their areas of expertise. Have lots more opportunities to learn and develop myself in this exciting growing company. Overall thumbs up and a friendly working culture!

      Cons

      Opportunities to improve in employees’ benefits.

      Bad and toxic work environment

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Nothing positive that has been found.

      Cons

      Virtually no co-op or intern wanted to go back the team after working. Very serious attrition issue due to toxic team culture. Every body uses the feet to vote. 1.Low pay below the market. Raises are very bad. It’s even worse as you stay longer. If you find reviews saying good pay, they are one type of the manipulated fake reviews from HR/manager as the other types. 2.The majority of the full-time team members don’t know anything. They undermine the others’ contributions by taking advantage of the facts that the managers are not technical. Gossiping the peers behind colleagues’ back is normal. 3.The team lead like to misrepresent the fake data and force the whole team to follow in order to cheat the credits from senior management and the product team, which is acquiesced by the team manager. 4.The manager only consider how to flatter senior executives to get promoted for themselves, neglecting engineers’ own interest.

      Pros

      Base salary, stock, and some of the employees are the main reasons why you would want to work here.

      Cons

      Upper management egos/cluelessness and stinginess when it comes to resources is why you wouldn't want to work here.

      Work is compelling. They hire smart and capable people that were great to work with. Management competent and engaged.
