    Software Developer

    So I am not from CS/IT background and in general find coding difficult no matter how much I try. I am into Angular and I found out that I like doing design part, HTML and CSS, but, don't like to do the api integration, data manipulation which requires coding. How should I procced my carrer with designing? Is it even possible? Do good companies hire people who are good at designing only?

      Great team excited about the work they're doing

      Pros

      - The team I was on was amazing, we all worked together not only to build a cool product, but also to learn from and make each other better. - Very healthy work/life balance - Co-workers and team-lead/managers who actually care and are excited about the product and the work they're doing, I think a rather rare and special trait. and no, dedication and excitement are not the same thing, but my team had both.

      Cons

      - Rather odd lack of empowered middle management for a company of this size, this has lead to a fairly significant chasm between engineers and upper management as there's no one to really bridge the gap - Compensation has not been keeping up with market rates - Lack of diversity in management/leadership level

      Pros

      Great virtual culture. Current employees make an effort to include new people in activities and knowledge sharing. Management is making informed choices about features and tech debt resolution.

      Cons

      Technical debt is being addressed but there is still a significant backlog. After several missteps, the company is making the changes needed to resolve it though.

      Best job I’ve ever had

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I’ve worked in the tech industry for 14 years, and this is the happiest I’ve been in my career: -Company mission and product direction are clearly defined for employees, and everyone seems bought in. -Colleagues are respectful, helpful, and kind to one another regardless of job title or demographics. -Senior executives are accessible and approachable, and recognize employees for their contributions. -Employees are given a good balance of clear direction and free agency to try out new ideas and make mistakes. -Lots of support and flexibility for working parents.

      Cons

      -In the development organization, there is not much movement between teams, so work seems siloed. -Colleagues in the Support organization seem disengaged and are continually leaving.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great employees who are welcoming, supporting and encouraging. Lots of opportunity for career growth and advancement.

      Cons

      A fast growing company requires frequent change to adapt to market conditions. This may not be comfortable for some, yet it also offers opportunity for individual growth.

      Solid company, lots of pivoting, little support, weak leadership

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some good people, a solid product, pretty good health benefits

      Cons

      I really didn't enjoy how the daily operations. I was constantly unaware of what I was supposed to be working on, priorities changing daily, so much work thrown out, beat up SF instance, lots of layoffs, randomly firing the CEO having a new one the same day, TOTAL lack of communication between departments. If you have to work in Portland, you can do way worse, but you can also do a lot better. Internal teams rarely communicate and if you are in the office have fun constantly getting booted from conference rooms or at least stared at even 2 minutes before the end of your meeting.
