    I have been working at League full-time

    Pros

    - RMT comes into the office - Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    - No one understands the product. We as engineers who make the product dont even know what we are selling. - Office politics - Managers dont know what they are doing. Consistent fighting between product managers and "eng managers" causes the team to get confused and ends up in more work for everyone - Overtime. Lots of it - "Eng Managers" aren't even technically qualified. It would be more accurate to describe them as second product managers because they aren't technically familiar with what is going on. As an engineer, expect to explain technical details to them as if they were a non-technical audience. - People aren't open to constructive criticism. When presenting ideas on how things can be improved, expect someone else to defend the current approach without thinking about the arguments presented. - Promotions are subjective. If you are on a managers good side, promotion will come often. An eng can expect to be promoted up 1 level a year if they are on a managers good side. This means that you can become a senior eng, if you started as a junior, in 2 years. Many of the "seniors" at league are actually junior/intermediate engineers - Salary. Below similar companies in the nearby area. - Salary deferral. If you make above a certain amount, your salary will be deferred by 5-15% due to the pandemic affecting business. We were told to sign a form to approve this and get stock options in exchange for compensation. When asked what would happen if we refused to do so, we were told that the salary deferral would take effect regardless and we would forfeit the stock options we could have gotten. This doesn't sound legal. - People come and they go. People get hired, realize the mess and leave, yet "management" stills fails to figure out why they leave. - Managers are only watching their own backs. If you post a message in your teams slack channel of a milestone reached or progress you've made on a project, expect your manager to private message you and tell you that its inappropriate to do so and you should let them instead announce it publicly. Managers would like the credit for the work you do, don't expect praise or a thank you

    I worked at League full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Generous Health and Lifestyle Spending Account Budget

    Cons

    - Authenticity is hard to find in this company, all about the loudest person in the room whether they are right or wrong - If you are in the "inner circle" it's all sunshine and rainbows, if you're not you might as well be transparent... this take a toll on your self worth - Uncertainty around what the company stands for, made it hard to get behind the vision with your whole heart when it kept on changing - Kept on using the "it's a start up thing" whenever situations came up which seemed off .... working now for another similar startup I now know these situations were not ok
