      Leadership listens. Work life balance.

      Don't waste your time

      Pros

      - Decent pay and benefits (for Boise market) - Flexible WFH - Pretty good work/life balance

      Cons

      Truly terrible upper management was allowed to stay in place for over a year, despite constant reports to HR of sexism, disrespect, and incompetence. In the last year, I've seen two acquisitions, two layoff waves (of ~40 and ~75 people), and literal dozens of voluntary departures. New middle/upper management is hired every couple months, upon which we scrap the cumulative "vision" of the last collection of managers and start working on a new "vision." Meanwhile, longstanding systemic problems continue to compound, with fewer and fewer resources left to fix them. Long story short, this company has no future. Look elsewhere.

      The company work/life balance is amazing. Great benefits, management is fantastic.

      Cons

      Pay is below market average. Communication could be better between all departments.

      Not a place to work anytime soon

      Pros

      Good benefits and work life balance.

      Cons

      On top of the insane politics, the company is in a downward spiral. They are getting rid of employees left and right and all of the other employees are leaving because the company is going downhill. Not a good place if you are looking for a stable job.

      Pros

      Great benefits. The work-life balance is utterly amazing, along with the company supporting fitness and health.

      Cons

      Lack of career development. This is a great starting point to leap off to a different company down the road.

      Pros

      The benefits at the time were pretty great with 401k matching, good medical, dental, and vision options. The benefits extended to the onsite gym, unlimited flex time off, great work life balance and flexibility and a very high trust environment. They have some very talented people that do a great job of leading their teams to success and quality software in innovative and exciting ways.

      Cons

      If you don't fit the culture or if you get one of the few bad managers the amazing culture can quickly turn a bit hostile and bit you. At least one of their engineering managers is still struggling to lead well and has ruined the culture for many on his teams.

      Pros

      Great benefits, fitness focused, transparent with info on company performance. Work life balance was amazing!

      Cons

      The fitness focus can be overwhelming if you're not into it, and at times felt like a good old boys club of bros.

      Pros

      The company is very employee friendly, very good work life balance. No ones works too hard. Pay is decent for the area. Good stepping stone company to build your resume.

      Cons

      It is a bro club; very unprofessional. If you don't fit the culture you will not move up. Company changes and improvements move incredibly slow. Systems built in house severely limit company potential. Management focus seems to always be on the "shiny objects" not on actual business improvements. Career ceiling is low.
