    Pros

    Brilliant people
    Meaningful work
    Crazy opportunity to make a difference
    Autonomy and teamwork

    Cons

    Working to navigate out of some pretty PR rough waters/sins of the past
    Have a tendency to try to boil the ocean

    Advice to Management

    Gain and maintain focus on only as many projects as your teams can handle. remember that new initiatives need to be balanced with existing projects, maintenance and constant system improvements. In software there is rarely, if even a project that is one and done... maintenance, improvement and iteration never ends until its time to EOL.

    Pros

    Despite some bad article online, this is actually good place to work

    better work-life balance than before

    bad reputation caused by misleading article and news online
    management is a little weird
    the market is not good for its business now

    Pros

    Free food. Standard compensation.

    Cons

    Subpar quality of engineering leadership. 90% of remaining engineers are from exactly same background. Basically everyone who is capable of getting a job somewhere else, has already left or looking to leave.

    Positive work culture focused on delivering a great customer experience. I'm respected for my contributions and have the ability to make improvements daily. The leadership is transparent when it comes to our objectives.

    No job is perfect, but this is best job I've had in a relatively long career, so I've got no complaints.
