      Pros

      Work life balance, great teammates and lots of opportunity for those willing to try. Always willing to use new technologies, and like the giveback days where you can help local charities.

      Cons

      Some older technologies as you would expect from a large and mature project. But pieces of it are slowly being upgraded to newer tech stacks.

      Pros

      - Co-workers and middle management are pretty good people

      Product with High Potential, Good People,

      Pros

      I met some really nice people in the Company from the first day on-wards. There is a good mix of experienced and fresh minds in Development team, who are willing to help at any challenges you face. Middle managers and Product Managers are really friendly and helpful with functional and professional knowledge The product has a high potential to rule the domain, once the teams and processes are properly oriented (which seems to be in progress, which is a good sign). Current stress on stabilizing the product in terms of scalability and quality, rather than adding more and more features, is a great move to better CSAT Recently, the company was acquired by a global group, which seems to be promising for the future of the product to reach new geographies, and also to straighten any process issues and provide directions to take it to the next level

      Cons

      It was sad to see some of the key resources leaving the company, for reasons that could have accommodated by management (I think !). I have felt that the management is a bit reactive to employee retention, that they try to talk to a person once they made their mind to move out (which doesn't work in most cases). At times, it becomes more of a micro-management, and you need to be answerable to 2-3 parties for the same tasks (regardless of the reporting/team hierarchy). Also, there are many distractions in the form of unplanned task (true Agile !!) Too much stress on quality of the final outcome, without forcing that during the initial phases (like design and development), thus creating overhead on testing teams (which was manual until recently) and causing defect leakages. Apart from the social hours (sorry non-alcoholics !) and annual gatherings, there's not much of an employee acknowledgement/appreciation in place. Same with employee development and training/certification opportunities.

      Great People & Forward-Thinking Culture

      Pros

      The company provides great extended health benefits, and makes an effort to bring teams together at the end of each week for a social hour. There are other perks, like free kickboxing classes and bagels on Monday morning at the office as well. But the people are the best part! I get the pleasure of working with fun, smart people who make the effort to recognize one another's achievements.

      Cons

      The parking provided is from a private lot, and the monthly fee is rather expensive. But the building is transit-accessible, so driving isn't the only way to get there.
