Great Company, Unlimited possibilities, but they work you HARD

Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsGood environment. Good culture. Comp pretty good. Narrative process is good and helps make things transparent. Business is extremely strong. Exciting and lots of upside and opportunity. Exec Mgmt is good team.

ConsNo work life balance. They work you very hard. i have been working 20+ years at major tech companies and this is the most hours i have ever worked - BY FAR. Employees care more about doing a half baked job and doing it themselves, versus working cross team. Two teams will be doing the same thing on same project because they want to take "ownership". No teamwork mentality. no free cokes - really??

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on team work and less on individual accomplishment. Also fix the comp system so that you aren't a drone with a specific number.

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