      Broken to its core

      Pros

      - Decentish pay and benefits - Solid Work/Life balance - Working in an emerging technology (and Magic Leap 2 is so much better than the first one) - Most of your teammates will be cool, and there are lots of great people at the company

      Cons

      - Those great people are not the ones making decisions, there are some astoundingly terrible people at VP and above levels (tempted to name drop honestly, but I'll refrain) - So many teams are driven by ego and uncooperative outside their immediate orgs - it makes getting work done impossible and the fact this tribalism exists is incredibly frustrating - The wrong people are constantly given platforms to make decisions and gain clout and there's no consequences for those same people not actually doing a good job or being a team player - its very easy to fail upwards it seems - You will waste a lot of time on work that gets scrapped, and it doesn't seem strategically sound why - Benefits feel static - they feel lesser each passing day in the current world's state - Way too lean, the constant excuses I hear from the lack of collaboration or things falling through the cracks is 'all hands on deck' or 'not enough people' ... it creates a vicious cycle - We have values like 'customer centric' and 'unity' and yet... we don't actually fulfill those ideals. I get company values are often... not "real", but in Magic Leap's case it feels particularly true. - Morale seems low, lots of turnover - These excuses existed pre and post layoffs in 2020... which makes me think this is just the core of Magic Leap
