      Decent, but not amazing place to work.

      Pros

      - smart friendly people to work with - decent amount of freedom when choosing technologies to work with - wide variety of programming languages and technology teams to work on - most of the time a fairly relaxed work environment Overall I'd actually have given a 2.5 star rating it was an option, 3 is too high.

      Cons

      - formerly a tech first company, now more of a business first; this certainly makes sense from a management point of view, but it is worse from an engineer's point of view - new reorganization of teams into something more cross-functional has made it significantly harder for developers to do work; once again from a product/project management point of view things may be easier, but for engineers it is now harder to do our jobs - significant lack of focus on code quality a lot of the time, more of a get it done now rather than correctly way of doing things

      Interesting Business Model; Technology-Driven Company

      Pros

      Collaborative work environment. Tremendous reputation in the industry. Lots of really gifted people, especially developers. Freedom to work in your own style. No silly rules about dress code or face time.

      Cons

      There have been major changes in senior management since I left so this may not still be true, but there was a lack of transparency, communication and process that could make it a frustrating place to work. They tend to be stingy and inconsistent with compensation. Half the company is developers so the whole place is very engineering-focused. It can feel like the tail wagging the dog sometimes.

      Pros

      The developers there are smart, relaxed and fun to work with. It is an enjoyable work environment with a lot of interesting projects going on.

      Cons

      The management is reorganizing and the work environment is shifting. Things seem to be going downhill a bit but they may stabilize
