      Pros

      Benefits, flexibility, great work life balance. The Source Code, when it is genuinely aspired to by leadership, is wonderful

      Cons

      Within the last 6 months there have been notable changes to the culture at Elastic, and the way that decisions are made don't always seem as focussed on human beings as they once were.

      Culture is taken seriously, I've not met a single jerk Work-life balance is taken seriously Almost everyone worked distributed before the pandemic, so you can work from anywhere and feel very engaged and connected

      Pros

      Openness: while some companies have "policies" Elastic has a "culture" of encouraging their employees to be themselves...come as you are! In the times: Elastic´s products and solutions are going to take companies to the next level, now and well into the future. It is a very relevant company, with exceptional offerings, supported by a ton of really intelligent people. The skies the limit: Whatever you can dream can, I am sure, be integrated somehow within Elastic. Work life balance: Elastic provide ample opportunities to enrich your personal life, such as offering paid time off to volunteer, plenty of PTO and encourages people to take time off in the middle of the day, if needed, to get some fresh air. Working remotely, for most, is also an excellent opportunity to spend more time with family, though also having more time to be productive...all while reducing the traffic congestion others must endure on a daily basis...win-win-win.

      Cons

      I have none at all.
