    The most diverse and fast paced tech

    Sep 28, 2022 - Software Engineer II in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will be working with some of the most diverse set of people. People who are very talented yet striving too make this place better. There is constant motivation to work towards a shared goal and with the new CEO things are only looking positive.

    Cons

    The only con being an engineer is dealing with code from dev who aren't around but the tech outlook looks positive and a lot of upcoming changes to drive innovation around. The domain itself is struggling in these difficult market but I think that is applicable to any place you are today.

    Odd Happenings!

    Nov 14, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Decent healthcare (0 plans covered by the company) - Decent work life balance - A (now very) small handful of genuinely nice and and competent people...all of which are currently trying to jump ship. - Some cheaper items on zulily.com are at a discount to you as an employee.

    Cons

    -Low pay , poor benefits. - Feels like they are letting people with real knowledge and experience leave to hire entry level people as replacements due to lack of budget. - 10 days of PTO which include sick days. You will not find a worse offering anywhere in Seattle. Directors and above do get separate sick days. - Random firings and layoffs. - Those recently promoted are difficult to work with and have a challenging time explaining their thoughts in a clear and calm manner. Their slap dash vision and wants completely change on a whim, creating more work and confusion for everyone else. Seems like an overall lack of experience; resumes of managers and above are overall unimpressive. -Micro-aggression misogyny thrive here, even the internalized type from other women in upper management. I have known a handful of talented women who left due to this type of toxicity. - They push DEI talks but there is a lack of diversity, inclusion, and self awareness in the company. Examples: Manager pinging on of the few black employees to do work on MLK Jr. Day (when it was a company wide holiday). Laying off POC people who have been at the company for some time and replacing with white hires.
