    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is growing so quickly, and there is a ton to do! There are so many challenges for you to solve, some of the biggest challenges you can solve in a career. And that makes it exciting. But what's even better is that Atlassian really gives its employees the room to solve those tough challenges. More than any company I've ever been at, Atlassian tries really hard to take all of the pressures that might prevent you from being effective. From the benefits, to the food, to the healthcare, the pay, etc. It's an amazing experience. The employees are some of the smartest people I've ever worked with, and it's an absolute pleasure to come to work every single day. Of course, this could be a "new job honeymoon" - but every one I talk to, who's been here for many years, feels the exact same way still. Everyone is working really hard - and don't get me wrong, it's not like we're all putting in 10 hour days, every day, or anything. But it's when we are working, we're working hard, intelligently, fast, effective, and efficient. And the best part of the business? our company values (look them up) - we live and breathe them every day.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Another pro of Atlassian is we're always trying to disrupt ourselves, before our competitors do. But, that can sometimes cause maybe some confusion, or disconnect, or have a lack of clarity - but, that's okay. Because if we didn't do it to ourselves, our competitors would. I want to address one "con" I've seen in other reviews - and that's the pay. I think the pay is "fair" or "average" for the bay area. But what you have to really look at is the total compensation (normally I wouldn't say this, but this time I do). The free food, the free healthcare, the stocks, the health stipend, the commuter benefits, etc...

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Super interesting work on the backend, lots of learning - Excellent technical managers - Knowledge sharing is engrained in the culture - Lots of empowerment and managers progressively increase scope and responsibility to help everyone stretch themselves to the limits - The company started adopting best practices across the backend in terms of focus on reliability and maintainability, incidents are tracked and reviewed and action is taken to fix root causes instead of just applying bandaid solutions (at least my team)

    Cons

    - Inconsistency between teams in terms of adhering to best practices, need more governance and standards - Lots of changes in priorities
