      Pros

      Amazing people, helpful, enthusiastic and smart. Good mix of experienced professionals who've been with the company 10+ years and younger professionals with fresh ideas. Office location was great. While there was a lot of change in the business going on there was also lots of opportunities to learn.

      Cons

      Try to compete with other big players while also trying to improve the tech stack so we were on a level par meant any new features got shelved.

      Cons

      Poor salary - raises were virtually non-existent year over year No growth opportunities without relocation Mundane work Lack of internal communication (yes, I'm aware of the irony) Revolving door on management

      Pros

      Great location, decent pay, relaxed culture

      Cons

      Toxic work environment (which may seem to conflict with the relaxed culture mentioned as a pro). But, the issue here is the lack of transparency from the management / managers to those under them. One cannot be blamed if they perceive that their supervisor is hiding a lot of things from them. Nobody trusts each other.
