    I have been working at Stem full-time

    Pros

    Stem has interesting projects for the engineers to work on. There is a wider variety of technical challenges than many other software-only companies. The people are all pleasant to work with and there are advancement opportunities, but you need to push hard for them. I was very happy during my time there and would recommend it.

    Cons

    There are plenty of growing pains as they try to figure out the product development process. This caused some frustration during product development but the management team is taking steps to rectify the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Team leads need to spend less time in meetings since nearly every decision requires their approval/input. When they are not accessible productivity takes a hit.
