    Pros

    * Building hardware and software experiences: Unique opportunity to work with hardware / firmware / software / platform engineers to push bounders on every end of the stack. * Constantly redefining the business (pro): Jawbone has the unique past of constantly pushing into new businesses. On the pro side, the company takes big swings to push the future. * Smart people: The company has many smart people that you enjoy working with and want to hang out with outside of work. * All of the "standard" high growth startup benefits: free lunch, subsidized parking, benefits, etc.

    Cons

    * Long decision times: In certain instances it has taken senior management too long to make a decision, leaving people to infer one. It's nice when the working team gets it right, sucks when we get it wrong. This has improved with Sameer's recent arrival but this change is still new so tbd. * Constantly redefining the business (con): Jawbone has the unique past of constantly pushing into new businesses. On the con side, it means we are sometimes churning too much while we redefine who we are. It can get frustrating when you don't realize its happening. * Challenges & the press: Every startup has challenges, the press seems to like talking about our's more than others. This impacts our ability to focus on building. Fortunately, it has not restricted management's transparency on the business and roadmap.

    Advice to Management

    Jawbone has a unique vision and opportunity. Management should plot a clear course for how we get there, continue hiring great people, get rid of the negative people, and deliver for our customers.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted by email a week later. Talk with the recruiter about my interests. Then talked with a team Manager. Then I talked with the Engineering team and finally I had an on site interview talking with several members of the team I could potentially work with. Questions were simple and they wanted to understand my interests and how I could help further the company goals.
