      Good experience so far

      Pros

      You feel looked after. Lots of smart people. Opportunities to try different things in the company with gigs and internal jobs being very accessible to the whole organisation Good benefits

      Cons

      A lot of people look like they are paid to do nothing and are waiting for a project. Not uncommon to see 3 people doing one person s job, which is frustrating when your own workload can be high. Famously not paid as much as other CS jobs

      The culture is changing in a negative way

      Pros

      Great product (to sell) looks modern and impressive. Some good people who are now finding the changes problematic

      Cons

      Ignorant middle managers and no leadership in UK. They don’t listen to the people, just arrogantly press on without a care. They talk about culture but these days it’s a buzzword, whereas initially it was a true thing. The company has changed so much and not for the better.
