Pros

Tremendously smart, capable well intentioned people.

Cons

No emphasis on teamwork, people development or work life balance.
"You're smart, you figure it out and let us know when you're done"

Advice to Management

Slow down from day to day metric management to focus on training your front-line and middle managers on how to develop people and processes

    Pros

    If you are a SDE the company will do their best to keep you. Value of RSUs increasing.

    Cons

    Anyone else isn't valued. There is an expectation to work 70+ hour weeks. Promotion to senior levels is rare, company instead hires from outside and this is destroying the company culture. The leadership principles used to guide the company but with all the new hires they are losing their value.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up...it takes great employees to keep you at #1 in customer service. Take time to train new managers on what the leadership principles really mean and how to apply them.
