      Pros

      Good work life balance. Good level of autonomy, engineers are allowed to make decisions about tech stack etc.

      Cons

      Decision making at middle management level can be baffling at times. Lots of reorgs happening, about once every year. Sometimes it is disruptive to productivity as people are shuffled around. Pay is not so ideal compared to other tech firms.

      Awful Senior Leadership

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Great company with great reputation - Access to buying shares as employee

      Cons

      - Favoritism from Senior leadership is obvious and announced based on people perceptions and likings rather than results produced - "Senior Leader" reviews for professional development are often sessions she drives using personal attacks on the person reviewed rather than constructive criticism with key points to look into to improve - Promotions within or outside the team are done based on tenure rather than impact on the business - Changes are operated without being explained or thought through before taking actions, leading to situations where the direct managers don't have enough tools and data to help drive their teams / business - Overall lack of transparency and honest feedback from leadership
