A comfortable company with good work/life balance at the expense of technical skills development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

Pros- Good work/life balance. I could easily maintain a 40-hour work week and still do well.
- Good benefits. Nice commuter benefits and generous vacation.
- A variety or products and projects to stay busy.

Cons- Older technology stack. The site is old, and attempting to use newer technologies is difficult.
- Underpays employees. My salary has increased by ~24% since joining 5 years ago.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
