      Pros

      Pay and benefits are excellent. Management is open and transparent with any and all questions. Onboarding was the best I’ve ever gotten, and there are so many opportunities for professional advancement. I have 1-on-1 mentorship from industry vets once a month, they have paid for 3 professional certifications (Agile Facilitator, CSM, CSPO) so far, and I have access to whatever I need to continue my development to support my teams.

      Cons

      There’s a lot to learn in the first few months.

      Organizational Incompetence

      Pros

      Good place post 2020. Financially successful, good benefits, good people overall.

      Cons

      Lack of wisdom, process, and best practice, during my time there (pre-2019). Things are better now for newer folks (+2020). Talk and building relations seem to be how to elevate oneself in the org. Make the right relations and you're set. It's less about doing the wise/right thing but saying the right thing. Leadership fail upwards. Very click-y.
