    GoDaddy - SDE (been here 2yrs)
    - great manager
    - awesome and smart co-workers
    - opportunities to expand and grow in technical track
    - company-wide hackathons 2x/yr
    - yearly engineering wide tech conference (techFest) that takes place at a resort in AZ (yes, fully paid for) where you get to meet other teams and learn about new tech stacks
    - benefits, compensation, perks, etc... are great
    - work schedule flexibility, work/life balance
    - most importantly, no bro-grammers

    Jet.com because they gave me generous stock options. I'm not quite set for life, but with that money I can buy a house or two.

    zuora. never felt this empowered and supported at any other company. really good people too (positive can-do attitudes, sincere, allergic to BS, etc). not a perfect company by far but I feel valued.

      I worked at zuora but left last year. Also think it was a great startup and solid choice as my first full time gig.

      Great, fun culture for sure but the pay was on the low side.

    Cameron Intl. until the Schlumberger acquisition. now every manager has become a petty "yes man" or they're fired for questioning decisions. They've lost several engineers to the likes of GE with 20-30% pay raises, while Cameron engineers are still at their same pay from 2014 with no anticipated adjustment to SLBs equivalent.

      Cam pay scale are already higher than Slb .

      Good overall pay, access to latest greatest devices, excellent work-life balance (I guess Iā€™m lucky to be on the right team/org) and very smart coworkers.
