Smart colleagues and amazing tools and great perks, but moves too fast and has such high turnover / internal move rate that the codebase (payments stack) was out of control. Too many layers of detritus -> too much time was required to understand what the heck was going, and by that time it had changed, and/or the whole group had been re-seated and re-assigned. Consequence: more movement, lower morale, unloved code. Continual distractions: email stream, meetings, internal news, internal research questionnaires, compulsory Unconscious Bias training etc. Great food, though, great compensation + benefits. Must be sociable!
Politics, Chaos, Low morale
