    I have been working at Evernote full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Highly collaborative, transparent leadership (after 2018 changes)
    * Company regularly recognizes and promotes strong contributors
    * Relatively high concentration of knowledgeable, skilled developers
    * Opportunities to contribute cross-functionally (few "stay in your lane" attitudes)
    * Strong brand and passionate user base means your work will be recognized and have impact

    Shortly after I joined, I was considering quitting. Luckily the much-needed leadership changes in 2018 have set the company back on the path of improvement.

    Cons

    * Relatively small development team to support such a huge user base and brand
    * Lots of tech debt and historical decisions to work through
    * The drastic (bold?) technical/product decisions in the works haven't been tangibly proven in the market yet; TBD

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me saying there was a position open that matched my skills. Had a phone interview with non-technical questions about my career goals and past projects, and afterwards a programming question was emailed to me to solve. Sent answer, got a quick response of no thank you, even though my solution worked!
