    Pros

    Free lunches, beverages, lots of team building activities. Awesome close-knit coworkers, great technology. Excellent pay. Easy to get promoted if you put in the time. Great mentorship by non-management co-workers.

    Cons

    Constant change in management, lots of turnover. Change in Operations middle management was a downfall because all the good managers leave. Going public caused lots of cuts to staff. They will continue to move staff to Ohio & eventually overseas because salaries are lower there which helps the bottom line but not good if you want to stay in Silicon Valley.

    Advice to Management

    Have some consistency in middle management and the turnover will lessen.

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing, culture is great, morale is fun

    Cons

    Not sure how other departments are, but our bonus structure changed recently and its not nearly as good anymore. Very little payout and dependent on another departments performance as well.

    Pros

    The company has an overall pretty relaxed atmosphere. Unlimited vacation time, unlimited sick time, not very strict work from home rules, flexible hours, free lunch, snacks, drinks, etc. Pretty much the usual for a company in Silicon Valley/Bay Area.

    Cons

    Absolutely no personal growth or development. What's worse, employees are vocal about wanting to grow and at the very least be developed into a stronger individual contributor/employee but management just wants their employees to shove their heads into their computer screens and work work work. What makes things EVEN WORSE is that management knows about morale issues but haven't made any effort to make things better. They may have a couple of meetings to make plans about how they can make things better but after the meeting it's like the meeting never happened. Management follows up and focuses on the absolute wrong things and has no idea what their employees do day to day. There are current individual contributors who can help turn things around and these are the individuals that need to be in management roles, people that are well respected amongst their peers, focuses on motivating team members, and can develop others into stronger employees.

    Advice to Management

    There's too much corporate politics and it's led by management! Open your eyes management or you're going to lose all your top talent!

    Pros

    Free lunch, snacks, drinks etc the usual in silicon valley. Benefits are good for this sized company. Relaxed environment, good work life balance.

    Cons

    No accountability for the leadership team. They set lofty goals and when things fail, they just lay off people under them. Just ask people how many lay-offs this company has had in the past 2-3 years. Management also seems to be lacking people skills. In one instance, they awarded someone with an very very expensive gift while giving the rest of the team close to nothing. I understand that person is important and did a good job but it was a team effort and not a one person job. By rewarding just one person, the management is saying they only care about the people at the top and not the individual contributors. It gives the wrong impression to the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look at all the comments here and think why the rating is so low and improve the moral!
