      Brilliant company with amazing people

      Pros

      * The people are the biggest draw. There is no blame culture and everyone focuses on solving the problems at hand. You'll work with some very smart and very welcoming people here. * How you work was always quite flexible, but the company has embraced remote working in recent years which is great. * The transition to the cloud has meant moving away from older, non-standard tech to a more modern stack and infrastructure. This has also presented lots of interesting problems to solve. * Internal mobility is embraced, meaning if you want to do something different you have the ability to move to another team internally. * A lot of focus has been put on benefits in recent years. Things like health insurance plan options, a personal wellness budget, a home office budget, volunteer days, charitable donation matching, etc. really show that the company cares. * The culture is unique and the company has managed to retain it even while growing across the globe. It's a work culture that I feel everyone should experience at some point in their career.

      Cons

      * There is still a lot of working in silos. Each department has their own directive and it can sometimes be hard to get them to care about anything outside of that. Management is aware of this and are trying to improve it though. * Teams are stretched thin which can result in some longer days. The work is coming faster than the open roles are being filled. * Overall compensation is below some of the bigger tech companies, so there is a big risk of losing talent to them.

      Pros

      Good Salary, Benefits and working environment. You will never feel pressurised

      Cons

      Salary composed of Base Salary, Incentive and Bonus.. The incentive is paid every quarter and bonus will be paid ones in a year.. so your basic salary will be low

      Pros

      A well established and well run corporation. The pace is medium, and although a hierarchical structure, everyone is approachable and relatively transparent. The Design-thinking process at product level has gone through a considerable positive transformational in the past 3 years. Excellent PM expertise leadership and a thriving Dev discipline.

      Cons

      Might not suit people who are looking for a super fast paced company. It's a deep domain, and will take time to accrue deep product knowledge (not exactly a con).

      Jutro was good, not clear now

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Smart and friendly colleagues. Digital transformation to Jutro is great journey with good challenges, and the new tech. stack is grand, especially Jutro Platform. New Dublin office looks impressive.

      Cons

      Income is not good comparing to other companies in the area. Creator and the main leader of Jutro left the company, which is a huge loss. Before that Front-end strategy across the company and Digital to Jutro switch was clear, and teams were working in common direction, in good relations with Product, and moving towards the Cloud. The current strategy and work split are not yet clear, there is lack of technical and strategy leadership. Same is about the leaders who really care about people. Recommendation- remove politics and retain the talent.
