    I have been working at Improbable full-time

    Pros

    - Surprisingly high levels of empathy from leadership - constantly informed on updates and business progress(things typically not shared in other businesses i've worked for) - A lot of positive changes for wellbeing and employee care which is great to see. - the products are even more impressive than i'd hoped they would be. - A lot of clarity around business direction.

    Cons

    - Can sometime take a little bit of time to get your voice heard (finding the right people / right processes to go through to make change) - progression can be hard to navigate, but there seems to be some work being done on this.

    Pros

    World-class talent People are generally humble and willing to help Best management I had in my career. High-quality engineers with cutting edge techs.

    Cons

    The company has been through some transition period , constantly changing direction and lack of clear communication. This lead to tons of middle-level management left the company along with many engineers who have been with the company for a while. Product strategy wasn't really clear, decisions were made without enough engineers involvement. Reorg back and forth a couple of times.
