Pros

Company is growing like wildfire. And the really care about their employees

Cons

They dont promote management from with in on a regular basis. It is extremely hard to go from a tier 3 to an AM postion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start promoting more tier 3s to an AM.

    Pros

    Very active culture
    You get to work with very smart people
    Things move very fast so you don't have time to get bored

    Cons

    Your progress will largely depend on your manager, their claim to love numbers more than anything applies only where it is convenient.
    Horrible life work balance - you are pretty much expected to do something extra just to keep up.
    Compensation is 'OK' don't expect to see any bonuses, at work place perks. They take frugality and turn it into penny pinching.

    Pros

    Some great engineers. An impressive suite of development and deployment tools.

    Cons

    To many layers of management. Most of those management layers don't have anything to do but play politics.
