    Pros

    Awesome culture, coworkers are smart and collaborative, the work constantly changes and you learn a ton, excellent ESPP program

    Cons

    growth comes with growing pains… sometimes mid-level new hires are under-qualified and/or don’t jive with the culture (but usually realize it and leave), career growth can be ambiguous as org charts evolve

    Pros

    Good health insurance, snacks in office, a lot of fun event.

    Cons

    Company recently hired a lot of new people and whenever there is difficult in one particular area, they either high a new person to cover it or recommend to re-org. This caused a lot of confusion and frustration among the employees because people don’t know what to do. There are new leaders coming from other local small firms, had no idea what is everyone doing, but still try to play “boss”, which caused additional administrative work that adds no value. Upper management does nothing to fix the problem, other than just want a stable team. Because of the large amount of new hires, the original friendly freedom culture is diluted. It is now more “Corporate “ like. People are told not to ask out of scope questions, don’t act too fast without proper guidance and etc. There had been talks about try to achieve work-life-balance, but there is also clear requirement that you need to make timely deliverables no matter what ( including canceling vacations). It is a conflict thing, but upper management calls it “ listen to employees’ voice”. Overall, this place is getting disappointing and bureaucratic, you don’t need to be smart and proactive and opinionated, you only need to smile, obey the order and follow “the big picture vision”. Had it not for the stocks, a lot of the talented people would have left already. A lot of the senior person remain quiet now and are waiting for their sabbatical leaves and plan for the great “exit”

    Poor Career Choice

    Dec 8, 2022 - Sr Staff Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great pay, good benefits, nice office

    Cons

    A lot of organizational churn and poor technical decisions due to inexperience. Nice people, but incompetence leads to a lot of churn due to indecisiveness. I have been with the company a bit over a year and have seen 3 re-orgs in my team alone. As a senior member, I had to constantly deal with false promises which is a bit exhausting. Ultimately, I am pretty disappointed with this career choice.

    Great Company; Frustrating Office Experience

    Sep 12, 2022 - Finance in Los Angeles, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great company overall. Excellent benefits packages in all areas. Pay levels near average most likely, though perhaps above average.

    Cons

    Company has recently required employees to be in person 3 days a week. When working from home was an option, that was chosen by big majority and so it is clear that most employees are disappointed with this requirement. Biggest problem is the open office floor plan. Very noisy at times and very little personal space. At times good for socializing but not productive for work.

    Great Culture and Benefits

    Apr 25, 2022 - Engineer in Boulder, CO
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Excellent culture where people are, on the whole, genuine and caring - Mangers care about your career growth - Fun problems to solve and easy to make an big impact with your work - Great work/life balance. Long hours are rarely required - Leadership is responsive to feedback and welcomes critical questions - Company still has a lot of room to grow - ESPP program is very generous - Company-wide “Palooza” events are a great time - Compensation is competitive (especially after recent adjustments) - CEO has a good vision for the company

    Cons

    - Though still excellent, culture has grown slightly more “corporate” over the last couple of years - People who aren’t great at management are sometimes moved into management roles - There are a handful of overbearing individuals in leadership - From what I’ve heard, some other orgs are less good to work in, but I’m speaking purely from my experience in Engineering
