    Pros

    I work with some of the best engineers that I've seen. Company not too hierarchical. Good work is highly recognized. Ideas are listened to. Technical decisions are made with careful analysis.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Too much email. Open space. Frugality. Sometimes work is not very engaging. Suffers from being too large. Internal tools sometimes a nightmare to work with. Specialization is difficult. Too much on-call duty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest on better tools, with better documentation. Deprecate old things. Strive for good simple designs. Encourage specialization.
