    Pros

    Very collaborative environment, constructive meetings, serious customer focus, and amazing long term perspective. Nothing is done to make this quarter look better, it's allways for the long haul.

    Cons

    Engineers own software that is delivered as a service and they own every aspect from design to development to test to operate to firefight to maintain. This is largely a good thing, but being on a pager duty rotation can put a damper on home life.

    Advice to Management

    Foot the bill for ops folks that can resolve more tickets.
