I have been working at Huge full-time for more than a year
- People have the technical knowledge according to their roles, there's no fake titles or people not knowing what they should. - Great place to grow professionally surrounded by pro's. - Very human... and employee caring CEO leadership. - Benefits are a nice extra bonus. - Salary is higher than the average and makes us feel well compensated. - Projects are interesting. - Work equipment is the best possible for us to have optimal tools.
- Not all the managers and team leaders are aligned with the CEO, on hard times they keep expecting us to be 100% productive while CEO has stated multiple times that they should be more tolerant and... not expect that due to the situation. - CEO and Talent Team are very caring for us as employees and humans, but some teams ignore that and only care about results without any empathy with their members and whichever situation they are going through. - Some Tech Leads only have the Tech, but not the Lead skills, they are excellent technically but lack all the soft skills of a leader, such as empathy, support and guidance. - The entry level bar was lowered to fill more required roles sacrificing quality over quantity, some of the pros listed above have been diminished because of that, as they have been hiring non-ideal people as they did before, some of us wonder how did they even pass the "cultural-fit" interview, and in some cases, the technical ones. - Benefits have been reduced because of the latter, as before they could be of quality, now their quality has been reduced as they need to focus on quantity.
Advice to Management
Pay more attention on how teams are being handled to ensure interest and priorities alignment, as even though the company itself, it's CEO and Talent team have great values, some of the team managers... and leaders don't, and it generates confusion and frustration as the employees generate certain expectations from top management's speeches and statements, but receive something very different within local team management. Make sure that the leaders do have the required leadership soft skills and not just the technical ones, because they can be excellent technically, but jeopardize the team productivity and synergy by being very mean to it's team members due the lack of soft skills on communication and empathy. Go back to prioritizing quality over quantity, there's no longer the feeling of being part of a family, now it's just another regular company that hires bulks of people and they come and go very quickly so now we don't get to really know anybody, this also injures the preservation of knowledge. It is better to do little but high quality work, than tons of mediocre work by hiring non ideal employees by the hurry of filling up a role vacant. The office got packed of people more and more before the pandemic, we lost many office benefits, like couches and relaxation spaces just to fit in all the bunch of people that was being hired, now given the pandemic we lost all the in-office benefits and have been forced to run with the expenses that were dealt at the office, public services, internet, no more free snacks, etc. This could be addressed, since as of now, the only benefits we have, are: Still having a job and being well paid, which isn't bad, but there's no longer the extra bonus of all those benefits.
