Not JS, but I've worked for a couple of competitors and can confirm. There were a few truly brilliant individuals, but most of the staff was unexceptional, and the general level of the tech varied between standard corporate and outright appalling. It turns out that if you have enough money, you can simply keep throwing programmers into the firefight until something sort of works. They're truly too rich to fail.

But, not an enjoyable ride if you actually love quality tech.

(But, money! So much money!!)
