Internal Communication

Very open communications.
My big gripe here: too often product design decisions were documented in IM team chats

Office / Work Environment

Company provided free snacks & sodas, also once/week provided lunch on site. I figure they did this because there was no place to get food closer than ~2 miles.
With 2 days working from home, that left only 2 days you needed to pack lunch.

Job Security

the biggest risk factor for working here.

What I like about the company

They used good technology to good effect.
They have a good, open culture.

What I dislike about the company

They seem to have a history of going through layoffs every few years.
Net: it's a good place to experience for a few years, but don't plan on staying much longer.
