    Pros

    The perks, people, and company culture are brilliant.

    Cons

    It's a young and growing company so support infrastructure and processes are often playing catch up.

    Pros

    Great culture! Truly fantastic to see a company be successful by promoting respect, work life balance, excellence and collaboration. No BS processes for the sake of process. Employees keep themselves accountable for their actions, no micromanagement (at least not in my team)! You're encouraged to speak up and lead. The founders are an inspiring combo of vision and execution of strategy. Loads to learn from them!

    Cons

    More attention could be paid to satellite offices. Not a disaster (yet) but could be improved.

    Pros

    - Interesting technology, years ahead but competition hot

    Cons

    - Company puts the cult in culture, its culture is 100% fabricated. - Diversity hires being celebrated over the employees that have actual merit. - Seeing candidates rejected because they don't hit narcissistic checkboxes. - "talent acquistion" have clear political agendas - Bubble money has led many to think they are more talented than they are. - Salaries below average for the industry. - RSUs clearly not going to compensate for salary long-term.

    Pros

    Well funded, innovative technology if you get to work in a core team

    Cons

    Over-hyped, artefact culture, imported from Xmos and Icera. Extremely self-entitled, chaotic and poor practises in place. Aggressive hiring needs to be justified. Middle management needs not to improvise.
