    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good location, great compensation, perfect work life balance, good culture

    Cons

    From developer perspective, this company lacks engineering gene. Performance review is not tailored to tech role and it is pretty frustrating when customer is one key criterion to judge a coder when BA takes responsibility to ensure customer satisfying. Developers are mostly new graduates who are painfully naive and inexperienced. Truely experienced and intelligent developers might face challenge to improve their skill further. Most of teams base their development on fancy CQRS+ES paradigm which means you need to spend one whoe month to finish some basic CRUD service and full of bugs.
