      Pros

      The developers here are extremely competent. Many of the senior engineers have deep experience in the industry and you can learn a ton from them. For my team, the work life balance is great (get off around 5). The office is really nice, and the views of the lake are great.

      Cons

      I feel pressure at times because team members are very talented and get their work done super fast

      Pros

      - Great benefits; - You'll get a chance to work with some of the smartest and talented people;

      Cons

      - Extremely high pace environment; - No work live balance; - Some Teams are great while others like a nightmare. Some managers are completely disconnected from reality, not listening to their employees and don't respect their feelings; - Mostly toxic culture, everyone is just fighting for a credit. When new hires come onboard with great ideas, seniors will take credit for it; - Complete disconnect between senior leadership and engineers who do the work. Managers need to do better job passing on company goals to their employees.

      Pros

      Free snacks. Some smart and friendly colleagues. Salary is ok

      Cons

      I have worked for this company for over two years. I feel this company has a weird culture where everyone says they support each other, but there isn't. Management says to care about employees, but what the company really cares about is profit, not employees. I don't feel that the company values ​​its employees, and I don't feel happy. Work is very stressful, I don't know about how others feel, but my health has been affected. Traders seem to be superior, I guess because companies think traders make profits and programmers work for them. Some traders are good, but some are not friendly. There is a famous saying in this industry that programmers are second-class citizens. I do feel that way at this company. Maybe I'm biased, but these are my true feelings. I would not recommend this company.
