Working at Cylance Inc. I learned of new cultures' ways. A breath of fresh air environment!
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 6, 2018
Everyone was friendly and quick to assist. The atmosphere was refreshing as everyone there had on a happy disposition. I learned how to associate with different people. The workplace culture was very exciting because most if not all people were very personable.
Pros
Lunches, gifts, get to know many different types of people!
Cons
I worked with an agency, my time there was cut short because of it.

Great place, if you love ancient technology
Software Engineer, Sr (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 26, 2018
They're transitioning right now.

They just got major Series E funding, and different factions are fighting over whether it's time to write enterprise software or if it's a startup with too much money.

Top-level tech decisions are driven by an old-school perl hacker who micromanages and wastes his time dictating trivia. Some managers want to fix the existing broken code (someday, when there's time). Others just want to focus on cranking out new features as fast as possible. Both types prefer "tried and true" technology: much of it was deprecated 10 years ago.

They spent 2 years getting a microservice into production. They totally missed the points that could have made this a good move.

But they're driving hard to force devs to write unit tests, because those will fix everything.

Data scientists write a lot of the problematic code. Then they hand it to "real" developers to convert from homework project to something serious. Usually without any explanation of how it works or what it's supposed to do.

They're trying to improve. They hired a new architect in February. He gave up and moved on in September.
Pros
Frequent free meals, well-stocked kitchen. Unlimited PTO
Cons
Good luck finding time to take any PTO

Great place to work if you are looking to learn and contribute to a worthy cause, but expect long hours.

Great place to work if you are looking to learn and contribute to a worthy cause, but expect long endless days and lots of moving and changing requirements.
