Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at eBay full-time for less than a year

Pros

Impactful work Fun culture (even during remote working) Intelligent, capable colleagues

Cons

culture can vary from team to team

Current Employee - SDK Developer

I have been working at Ably full-time for less than a year

Pros

- There are valuable colleagues: emotional intelligent, smart, experienced or all simultaneously. E.g. I was in a call with 3 people, and we had 50 years of experience in technology. People are... thoughtful when needed: long term strategy, short term tactics and communication. - There are even more perks, but here are some I like: Juno (which is an app with extra perks like food delivery, apple watch, based on accumulating points), healthcare, snack budget for every friday meeting, which goes between 4 to 5pm. - There is an outgoing, friendly and dedicated people team, who are detecting any issues they find. The people team have introduced an anonymous form for people to submit further information if they have any issues. They also share resources online, and recommend/ (advocate on slack) people buy resources/ books and get them expensed. - Organised: the confluence pages are well written - Very open. Things are very transparent. Adding an anonymous Q&A in the weekly meeting.

Cons

Nothing so far to mention.

Advice to Management

I like seeing the people team's engagement (e.g. in slack, in Zoom calls). I think there won't be any long term cons when issues are found and addressed like they are now.
