    I worked at Location Labs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay. Full featured and stocked kitchen with breakfast, lunch and daily snacks. Oh plus kegerators on each floor kitchen. Senior management makes it a priority to buy locally which is nice. Co-Workers are great and feels like you are hanging out at their house doing work (is also a con please read below) relaxed environment, benefits are good and unlimited personal time off if needed, unpaid of course but a nice option for emergencies.

    Building is easy to get to using public transportation (bus, shuttle and train) never have to deal with parking since there are several place to park. Close walk to great lunch options

    Cons

    Very "bro-ish" culture as most people are friends outside of work which makes the teams very "clickish" Very little chance of getting a raise or moving up in the company unless you are friends (outside of work) of your managers and because of this your quality of work does not matter if you are looking to move teams or changing job titles.

    The core value of the company is meritocracy and I think they have lost sight of that. I have seen really successful and hard working people lose their jobs for no reason because one or more of the executive staff do not personally like that person. Most people see that and are afraid that they will not have a job the next day because they are not personal friends with the management or the executive team does not want them around anymore.

    This creates a lot of office "drama" with people talking behind other peoples back or going out of their way to please senior staff and executive management for fear of doing something wrong that could end their employment without notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people who are not acquaintances of current employees to break up the current bias that exists in all departments. Be more transparent in your decisions and listen to your employees and not flat out right ignore what they are saying because you think it's the best option. LL states that they hire the best and the brightest as they say put your money where your mouth is and listen to new ideas and don't immediately shoot them down.

    Senior and Executive staff need to realize that not everyone you having working for you is your buddy you hangout with after work and are people who are there to help the company grow and function as we.ll as grow themselves to better their career. Stop laying off and firing people because they don't know you personally work places are supposed to be diverse and have a wide range of different people this is what makes them unique and fun to work at

    Bring back meritocracy and don't let your personal feelings affect your decisions
