    Pros

    - The guy/girl sitting next to you might be nice and you can probably hang out. - People are generally knowledgeable and will happily share their knowledge. - Some of the people are even real gems, on a personal level - unfortunately, those are rare and they appear to have no say (notably those are often the older employees who have a little bit more experience). - Free treats (also see 'Cons' below).... Conclusion: you might like it here if you just want to take your money home and don't care about company culture that goes beyond free pizza.

    Cons

    - Too many of the wrong kind of people in some of the most powerful positions: people who have been with the company from the start have been pushed up into higher positions regardless of whether they have any kind of leadership/management capability - HR overly enthusiastic about the company turning a blind eye on things or blaming the employee/making the employee responsible, even when things go terribly wrong -... Employees 'bribed' to feel happy in the workplace with lots of meaningless free treats - A lot of the employees only care about their career/themselves and do not care about the company one bit. - Likewise, the company does not care about the individual. - What is deemed to be an 'anarchist' culture where supposedly everyone can say or do what they want is actually just a system of tyranny where your boss can tell you what they want and you're supposed to clap when he is finished. If you don't like it, there's the door. That's your freedom (that and the pizza). - Due to this a lot of people are just keeping their mouth shut. - Average age of the employees (Engineering and HR!) is too low. The company likes to hire young people between 20 and 35. Diversity (or lack thereof) is an issue. Overall the problem is that the company wants to think they are something that they are absolutely not. I have found it deeply depressing to work there.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop turning a blind eye on people abusing their power. - Some people in management positions really should not be where they are... - Be a little bit self-critical - there is no way to improve things without first acknowledging that not everything is perfect.

    Pros

    Working with some great engineers on problems with challenging aspects like handling significant scaling and a fast-evolving landscape. Some great tooling such as unlimited on-demand replicas of the full stack allowing much easier investigation, debugging & testing. Fast release cadences supported by significant CI pipelines, automation. Lovely offices with nice perks. Flexible working really does mean... flexible here, rather than being a codeword for allowing you to do unpaid overtime if you want.

    Cons

    Engineering is isolated from it's CTO by a layer of non-technical people at VP level. They're not bad people, but it makes for a difficult experience and restricts potential career growth opportunities once you're near the top of the Engineering tree. Salaries are decent, but very widely variable within a role - if you don't want to negotiate hard you are likely to do worse than colleagues more interested in... fighting for more.

    Advice to Management

    Address the VP-level air-gap. Follow-through on projects - MVP&I doesn't stop after one iteration.
