    More communication and ops than dev, but learnt a lot on that

    Nov 14, 2020 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Learn micro-services development, operational excellence, visibility and incident management - Learn to work with people from many backgrounds - Things have got a lot more organized in the last two years, and we are delivering big things - Competitive salary - Stable employer in corona times

    Cons

    - Communication overhead within teams, often less time for coding - Project/program management oriented working, big top down initiatives, less chances for iterative development - Black Friday and the Cyber Week around it halts new development for weeks. Endless load tests and readiness checklists required by central teams - Yearly evaluation rounds are tiring, and might slow down your internal career advance if you don’t know how to play the game.
