    Pros

    My team is very challenging, but often rewarding .

    Cons

    A lot of teams are asleep. As a DevOps engineer, I find it very frustrating that nobody has a clue where/how their software runs, and even moreso that they are unwilling to improve and learn.

    Used to be really great company, but as it is growing too fast not sure it will stay like this

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my experience with the company since join in 2016 until recently. Lately too much politicking happening around and too many nice ppl start leaving. Personally for me had good and bad managers (company growing, a lot of changes happening) aka good and bad experiences in the company. Still would recommend to consider the company as a workplace but be careful who the manager is and what the team would offer in term of career and learning opportunities. --- If the manager is good, as everywhere, the overall experience with the company will be really good --- Possibility to change the position/department inside the company --- Usually management is supportive around learning opportunities --- Flexibility (in my case, but not on the company level) --- Complex software so challenging enough (* but some monolithic parts of it not so interesting to work on) --- Possibility to travel and collaborate with US based teams --- Multicultural environment and a lot of nice ppl --- Volunteering opportunities --- Good base pay + Stocks --- Good office space

    Cons

    --- Inconsistency across the departments on remote work, wfh, career development --- Really bad HR department in Dublin office: all through the tickets even when urgent things are happening, easier to search for the help from colleagues as they are more responsive, no easy way to engage with HR when situation requires it as it's hard to find right person even to ask (again usually the response is 'Create a ticket'), no exit interview --- Core values are written but the actions are not aligned lately --- Company is growing too fast so a lot of toxic ppl came in the company and destroying prior really good work place to be (sad) --- Very unfair treatment in some departments around the company (like making ppl aim to ‘be visible’ to be promoted (I always thought it should be around contribution, quality of work and etc.), one of my managers for example was really arrogant, unprofessional and did a lot of micromanaging, others were from ok to great, in some teams socialising after work influence your ‘visibility’ - very non inclusive I’d say for certain categories of employees ) --- Company doesn't fire people more like making them leave. Those 3 who actually were fired (I assume they were) disappeared without a word. Which is really weird for me. --- Slow delivery to production (it's kinda good everything is tested and etc, but annoying to wait half of a year or more to see something be delivered)
