    Former Employee - Software Engineer
    Former Employee - Software Engineer

    Pros

    free food; smart people; overall interesting projects; flexible work hours (still long hours)
    The benefits and salary is very good but comparing to how much you end up working is not that lucrative;

    Cons

    - Managers are too busy to give feedback (only once a month). They are not on the same page with the lead and it's quite confusing what they're looking for sometimes.
    - They don't really put you in a team that matches your experience/interest. You can get stuck in a team for at least a year when you start working there
    - Extremely high workload

    No opinion of CEO
