    If you want to have an impact you need to be in Seattle

    Senior Manager, Product Management (Current Employee) Sunnyvale, CA

    ProsGet the chance to work with a tonne of very smart people

    ConsUltimately, you will hit he ceiling in California working at Lab126. If you want to really grow your career, you need to be where all the decisions happen and that's Seattle

    Advice to Senior ManagementDelegate more. Too many decisions are held too high up in the organization to make it an effective or efficient place to work

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