No room for advancement. Too much politics with senior leadership. Product teams are very good. Great Care and Field operations teams. Tough environment to work in right now because of too much competition in the industry. Will be more layoffs and consolidation in near to mid term.

Pros and Cons
Good reputation. Great engineering teams. Learn Agile.
Too much politics.
