    Boring corporate environment that is too rigid and stuffy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    Pros- occasional parties and happy hours to help boost morale

    Cons- you had to fight for other roles in the company. i mean FIGHT. i had a manager tell me that he had other applicants coming into his office daily to try and secure the job in question. i guess applying, interviewing, checking in and prior experience with the company meant nothing.
    - very political and you basically have to know the right people to get anywhere.
    - sales people threw their weight around and barked orders

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    culture of professionalism and openness

    Director (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsFantastic corporate culture. Through many years of change, a genuine sense of teamwork has always persisted.
    Despite a complex business, departments and teams are managed in such a way as to create a sense of place and purpose.

    ConsIt can be difficult to convince upper management to change, even when data exists to support such a notion. This might be a function of the complex nature of the business: for every analysis that can be done to support one conclusion, it's often possible to create compelling arguments to the contrary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake risks.

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