      Pros

      -Interactive and enjoyable onboarding process -Tommy in particular was great during the interview and hiring process. He kept me informed during all stages and answered any questions I may have had very quickly. He even responded back to me outside of normal working hours which I greatly appreciated -Amazing work culture (everyone is eager to help, welcoming and incredibly diverse) -Awesome Benefits (great healthcare + wellness plans, unlimited vacation, WFH) -Reachable and transparent leadership team -Lots of opportunities to learn + take on more responsibility

      Cons

      -WFH during Covid-19 makes it difficult to meet team members in-person -Such a large organization means there is a lot of initial learning to do when trying to figure out proper channels of communication

      Remote onboarding kinda sucks. You won't be coding much here.

      Pros

      - Jack is a solid dude - Good company values - Good benefits - Co-workers generally friendly and helpful

      Cons

      - On-boarding really, really sucks. - Nobody really knows anything, and people are just blindly following processes. - Write docs for days / weeks / months, no time actually spent writing code. - If you like technology and building things with code, you'll be stuck in a quagmire of documentation, reviews, complicated legacy code nobody dates touch, and robotic processes. - Nobody has figured out how to build team morale remotely, which is a problem given Square wants to become a fully remote company.
