    Pros

    - Incredible, talented coworkers who actually care about the business and team as a whole

    - politics present, but kept to a minimum level.

    -flexible working hours and free lunches!

    Cons

    - Evening meetings with Korea can make WLB tricky for some people

    -Improvements can be made about inter-team comms

    -Pay is slightly below standard for a tech company in Downtown Seattle, not too serious though since benefits are pretty generous

    - Growing pains! our team is still not big enough to cope with insane growth.

    -can't get to experience the exciting part in Korea(they don't operate in USA for ecommerce :( )

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing whatever you're doing and listen to your employees!

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for developers to choose and work.
    It is an environment where you can feel free to say what you need to improve the system you are in charge of, or if you need improvements in other systems.
    So there is a foundation for further development.

    Cons

    As the service gets bigger, opportunities for communication with other teams are getting smaller. So it is a pity that we do not have a chance to know how the work between the teams is going.

    Advice to Management

    It may vary from one team to another, but it is entirely autonomous. If you do not interfere with your work, you will be able to do various things.
