Becoming worse

I have joined the company since 2018 and enjoyed many benefits but since a couple a years, there seems to be a trend where people are less and less reliable when you need to be accountable as if you failing makes them happy.Don't share more than necessary and succeed.

Great pay but at a huge mental cost

Wonderful pay and perks. Some pretty cool projects and smart people but your mileage will vary depending on which team you're on. Some teams are great, others not so great. Lots of ego and toxic bully behavior triggered by their stack ranking performance evaluations so everyone is competing against peers. They literally encourage people to talk behind people's backs (it's called providing peer feedback). Sometimes it goes out of hand because management sucks on average. They promote people with zero people skills, zero problem solving skills, zero team building skills and empathy to managers. Really, it takes more than taking your team out for lunch once in a while to call yourself a manager. Diversity is a PR stunt only - they hire you for the stats, they boast about their diversity programs all while don't care about retention rates (they keep those secret). They really are a white-boys-under-25 club. I heard reports of people doing drugs to outperform peers and win the rat race towards a raise. One of my peers used to send pull requests at 2 am on a regular basis. All in all a great company but each team has its own little micro-culture that may be toxic and you may be stuck. I joined for the company, left because of a manager.


Great pay and perks


Toxic culture in some teams, management mediocre at best
