Sort: Popular Rating Date

Pros
  • The work/life balance was the best from all places I've worked in (in 53 reviews)

  • It also encouraged flexible working in which employees could work from home or anywhere really without having to come to the office (in 47 reviews)

Cons
  • Some of the disadvantages are: senior management is not always available, sometimes there is a feel of a barrier between seniors and regular employees (in 18 reviews)

  • Sometimes as it is a big Company you need to involve quite a few people to progress with a project (in 15 reviews)

    Pros

    Good salaries and benefits. The offices are all very nice.

    Cons

    Very challenging environment culturally and bureaucratically to get things done. There are numerous decision makers for all expenses and opaque processes to sort through to develop products. Face to face communication is essential to moving the needle.

    Pros

    Easy work that requires a lot more skills keeping everybody happy than doing actual engineering work. Fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    Work estimates often way beyond what was really required. Contractors often treated badly compared to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Direct managers did as good a job as they could. Leadership should be aware that if there is not a lot to deliver people will start playing politics instead of doing work.
