Very mixed range of skillset, experience, and intelligence

Software Development Engineer I (Former Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

Pros- The smart ones are some of the smartest teammates you will ever have
- You WILL learn a lot
- you get paid like a boss coming right out of school

Cons- The dumb ones are some of the dumbest people you will encounter (and may drag you down with them)
- Every once a while, you may be put on a nasty project. sometimes by yourself. sometimes without any help, but they have expectations that you'll finish. early.
- you will have to wear a pager and be on call some time (some teams have light schedules, with one week per every 4 months, but some teams make you go on call one of every 3 weeks)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let someone be a manager just because they have been there for 10+ years. if they're not fit, it's time to recognize that and either add someone else or just swap him. Horrible Management means capped creativity (which kills a product innovation team)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Lack… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
