      Management is a mess

      Pros

      Brilliant colleagues, excellent vacation and sick time policy, great location

      Cons

      Management and communication are a complete mess. There are so many daily meetings and emails it’s impossible to get any real work done. More than 50 internal emails every day that you’re expected to respond to ASAP when necessary. Management treats you like a cog in a machine, gaslights you, throws you under the bus. Lower pay than competitors. High turnover.
