    Pros

    Company culture strives to minimize process in favor of trusting employees and giving them room to run. This results in an organization powered by experienced self-starters who are incredible people to learn from. It provides the maturity of a larger company with talented people, while still enabling considerable creative freedom. (Applies to Los Gatos HQ)

    Cons

    Coordination can sometimes be weak due to "loosely coupled" culture. It is very easy to get out of sync on goals and expectations with teammates and managers unless one is very vigilant and communicates well. Most managers try to adhere to the culture, but each deviates in their own idiosyncratic way.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger cross-function consistency as regards to commitment to culture would be ideal. Product, Content, Marketing, and Finance have all substantially deviated in their own ways.

    Pros

    Very fast paced. Exciting projects!
    Exceptional pay.Work with exceptional talent every day.
    Freedom and Responsibility culture works the best.
    Have a challenge? Find the solution and move on to the next - is the core principle.

    Cons

    It can be tough to adjust to the freedom and responsibility accountability approach but that is the best way employees are challenged to provide the best value add to the work.

    Pros

    The pay was extremely comparable to other call center jobs in the area. I found that success was completely individually based - essentially, if you wanted to do well you had to really focus your efforts on coming into work with a fresh attitude.

    Cons

    The call center environment makes you feel like you are "just a number" often. It is also difficult to be gauged how successful you are at your work based off of each individual you talk to (via surveys).

    Pros

    Great people, full of intelligent hard-workers and top performers. You'll have exceptional coworkers. The company is extremely transparent in every way so you'll always know where you stand.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is sometimes hard to manage. They expect top performance from everyone, which can take a toll on home life. No vacation policy, yet hard to find a time to take a vacation due to how much work you have.

    Advice to Management

    No advice here.
