    I think Wlb is on par/ better here than other companies I have worked at. In general teams are v flexible with working from home when needed. Many employees on the software side have kids, including many managers. it’s not full of 22yos working 80h weeks. I also think it’s a great company besides all of that.

    Depends on the position obviously. I've heard the ops suck hardcore. Idea and concept is fantastic but I've heard execution, wlb, and total comp are lacking

      What ops? Their service has like 100 concurrent users. All their issues would be on the data entry, state, and clean-up side. I'd expect oncall to be easy there - if it's not, their engineering sucks.

      @airbnb low qps doesn't really equate to lesser engineering challenge. Every service call of their's is worth n fold of any web service like uber or Airbnb. The number of pages might be lesser, but the revenue lost of even a minor issue would be huge!

    Depends on the team. There's a team selection process where you can make sure you pick a team with a good balance.

    When you are looking at teams, see what time people put up diffs, and ask to see pulse results. You can easily find a good team if you look for it.
