    It was good for a while

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good with the company. Allows working from home during COVID.

    Cons

    Change of ownership during 2020 seemed good in the beginning then the honeymoon passed and things rapidly changed. The new parent company is moving tons of engineering offshore with the pretext that Austin is too expensive. Key positions were eliminated and Engineering teams are asked to wear 2 / 3 hats to accommodate more responsibilities. This is in lieu of cost reduction but if you see the balance sheet the company still makes good money. Also, the core values that made the company great are no longer followed. The only valid bottom line is only one thing: save $ and cost reduction.

    Things are changing and engineers are leaving

    Jan 14, 2021 - Senior Backend Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company has been very flexible during the pandemic and we still have some good people that started few years ago.

    Cons

    The CEO and CTO were removed after being acquired by a previous company - we recently moved under a new company and things are getting worse. The engineering side is the most impacted at this point since all of the positions under the temporary engineering head are being shifted towards the office in India.

    Glory days are long gone

    Aug 25, 2020 - Engineering in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They may still pay reasonably well?

    Cons

    zig-zagging senior leadership with a pass-through mentality reflects on work climate. Most good folks from the better days who could afford to leave have done so.

    Good learning experience.

    Jun 9, 2020 - Staff Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are many able people there who are exceedingly good to work with.

    Cons

    Company has gone through major transition as part of Harland-Clarke catalogue. The fact that the business itself has been changing significantly has not made that easier.

    Restructuring totally destroyed the company

    May 15, 2020 - Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    None, they took away all of the perks, culture and good leadership to become a corporate machine

    Cons

    Marissa is no longer the CEO. They fired her, got rid of the perks that made sub-standard pay seem legitimate, and the new CEO directly told the company he does not care about cultural autonomy, that revenue is key. There is no more free food (once the office opens up), no more 401k matching, “flexible” PTO is being rediscussed, major leadership is leaving in flocks; it is turning into an awfully-oiled machine.

    Great place, but losing all engineering

    Oct 3, 2019 - Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Really great pay - Really great benefits (free lunch, snacks, fridges always full of beer/wine, amazing facilities) - A lot of really smart, kind, helpful people work here

    Cons

    - So much attrition from engineers (over the last year, probably 40% of eng staff left) - Upper Eng Management (VPs and CTO) don't seem to care about keeping engineers or backfilling positions - New initiatives keep starting even though there is not enough staff to maintain current initiatives/projects
