    Worst experience , worst management biased people

    Pros

    1. Benifits and compensatory 2. On time salaries

    Cons

    If you are working at India office , and in testing team . Trust me you are in big trouble because team mates are incompetent and no planning at all for any projects 2 ladies dominate complete team, as they have joined first but matter fact is both of them are dumbest individuals I had ever worked with. Secondly manager will only take their side IF you escalate as they are from same geographical region —- SOUTH Your opinions are not at all respected in team without trying you opinion is rejected . And if you pitch in manager then he will have only one fixed statement that is —-> “if you ask me I don’t have any solution to it , you can discuss it with in team and let team decide.” Your HR leader is most irritating personality in complete organisation Some of examples are : 1. your videos should always be turned on in meeting 2. She is more interested in your personal reasons while taking leaves 3. She will call you anytime she wants , but if you call her directly, she will humiliate you in front of everyone , saying you should not disturb her she is always in meetings 4. She is also very rude and she don’t even have the empathy to hear you . You will literally experience a HITLER while speaking with her. Junior managers behave like gossip gal , he wants to know each and everything team mates are saying about him. Unnecessary back to back meetings for 2-3 hours , in which you will never speak a word but it will waste your productive time . IN SHORT : Your efforts , opinions , suggestions are not respected and you will have a great down curve to you career.

    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.

    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.

    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

    It WAS a great place to work

    Sep 30, 2019 - Senior Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They compensate employees really well. Having catered lunches was nice. I learned a ton there and worked with some great people before they left.

    Cons

    The senior management made a lot of big bets that never paid off. There has been tons of turnover, those who stayed got promoted, even if they weren't qualified to perform the task. They treat their product managers poorly, give them little leeway to make meaningful change. Office politics were rampant if you wanted to change anything you had to back channel everything, have meetings before meetings. Decisions were not made in meetings, all discussion in meetings was futile, it was always a formality. Managers would tell you what you wanted to hear, then renege on it later. Life at RetailMeNot evolved to process without purpose, and became a total drag.

    Skeleton crews are running RMN Engineering

    Jun 12, 2019 - Software Engineer in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Free parking at Frost Bank Free breakfast on Mondays and Fridays Free lunch every day except Wednesdays Free snacks and drinks Free coffee at the coffee bar Reimbursed for phone bill and gym bill Free wellness/exercise classes Great culture and values Friendly coworkers Diverse RxSaver is growing rapidly and is an exciting space to be in

    Cons

    "Unlimited PTO" when you're being recruited, "Flexible" PTO once you actually start Relatively recent layoffs No longer a company where engineering is valued Engineers are leaving in frightening numbers, and leadership does not prioritize backfilling positions, resulting in significant loss of knowledge. Some teams are down to a single developer. Projects are being moved to teams who have no idea how to support them. The company was not willing to sacrifice short-term revenue for long-term growth and success back when we had the personnel to handle it, now teams are just trying to get out of maintenance and support mode. A lot of friction when onboarding new engineers There used to be a Wednesday work from home policy that was eliminated early this year. The number of summer interns has decreased this year from the previous year.
