    ProsFolks actually value worklife balance here, but there's still lots of challenging work to be done.

    Love my job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

    Pros- Culture (company groups for photography, ping pong, NERF, crock pot classes, volleyball, soccer, women in business etc)
    - People - Most everyone is so nice and cool and interesting. All hard workers
    - Amazing product that you're proud to represent
    - Starting to innovate more and have more interesting user/artist-focused ideas come to market

    Cons- Management on certain teams is very political
    - Since we're growing very fast, some sectors are hiring too quickly without enough input from all members on teams

    Advice to Senior Management- Allow more people to interview candidate when interviewing
    - Focus on your staff instead of managing upwards
    - Stay on toes with competition

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
