    I worked at Secret Escapes full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Dedicated time to work on your own personal development through hack days and personal objectives

    * Everyone is super friendly and always willing to help out

    * Recognition for when you do something good!

    * Constant strive to improve processes and code base

    * Good software development practices (code reviews, TDD, retrospectives etc.)

    * Team rotation ensures things never get too stale

    Cons

    * Application is becoming a bit too large of a Monolith.

    Advice to Management

    Try and grow tech team significantly larger so time can be dedicated to restructuring and splitting up the app into separate services using better languages/frameworks
