    Pros

    Great workplace culture, tons of flexibility, and closeness among employees. Conducive to a great work environment. Had a wonderful supervisor.

    Cons

    The year-end period calls for long, stressful hours for a few months, but it is made up for by the lower stress and flexibility of the rest of the year.

    Pros

    Medium sized company with some interesting work and opportunities. International company with many different cultures.

    Cons

    Boys' club culture with limited accountability; no strong leaders with clear and inspiring vision.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring/promoting technical people without people management skills. Stop asking us to give feedback on the culture when you don't actually want to listen.

    Pros

    Interesting business with very good compensation that is being reduce under private ownership. International culture with fundamentally good people.
