      Pros

      As someone mentioned, nobody gives a sh*t. So you're that type of person, it's heaven. That's about it.

      Cons

      No technical leadership on all levels. The app architecture is a mess. Almost nobody knows how things work which creates bugs when developing a feature. The company doesn't care when a good/knowledgeable dev/qa quit, thinking everyone is replaceable. If you do a bad job or no job at all, you get promoted. It's all about creating a smoke screen, an illusion that you work and care. Lots of technical debt that just keeps on growing. Might be good as a first job, if you're smart you'll learn how not to do stuff. The opposite happens rarely if at all. The senior management is doing reorgs as if trying to improve things. They are either clueless or don't really want to make a great product. They will probably just sell at one point and run away.

      Pros

      You get to work on a fast paced, cutting edge tech-stack. The product is interesting and making impact.

      Cons

      Fast shifting priorities Micro management to some extent Lack of transparency Non competitive package. Rrsp matching was 500$ at that time. No bonus. Lack of trust. No much opportunities of growing

      Great place to work if you love stressful environments!!

      Pros

      This is a very good company to work for if you thrive in stressful environments. Great place to work if you love meetings, meetings and more meetings with no conclusions. Great place to work if you are okay with micromanagement from leadership, so you don’t need to make any intelligent decisions but still get paid for it. Great place to work if you like burnouts and mental breakdowns. Great place to work if you are not good at remember your coworkers names, because they will quit in less than a year anyway. Sometimes they leave without notice, which makes it less painful. Great place to work if you are excited by bad product development process. Great place to work if you are a masochist who enjoys back aches, because the company took almost a year to decide whether or not a compensation for WFH equipment is important for employees. Good news for you, our benefits sucks and there is no short term disability leave, so you can continue the suffering.

      Cons

      The positive reviews here are obviously fake. They need to hire someone to write more convincing reviews. Even a bot could do a better job.

      Great product, wrong process, slow evolution

      Pros

      - friendly atmosphere, most devs are easy to work with - kubernetes stack, each dev team gets its own cluster namespace which is awesome - microservice architecture (not continuously deployed but they're working towards that end) - use of modern techs (except for Java Spring Boot 1 services but they have nodejs and golang services) - systemic and structural problems offer immense challenges both at the human and software levels. - ultra high employee turnover ensures that no one will annoy you for very long

      Cons

      Management will make you fill out timesheets but they wont fill out any themselves, so no way to know what the managers are actually doing in their meetings. Director is asking for imputability but is not being imputable herself by putting managers between her and the people doing the actual work. Aside from that the other reviews about the company caring mostly about short selling features have been mostly right. Low technical knowledge due to high turnover.
