I have been working at Amplify full-time for more than a year

Pros

As long as I work here, I feel like I have a chance to improve the state of education and help poor kids overcome the economic achievement gap.

Cons

Drive-by management from C-levels. Pretty clueless senior product management. Several internal divisions are in silos, seemingly by intent, leading to reinvention of many wheels. One division is further silo'd into boutique studios that are barred from collaborating. Nepotism. Budgets designed to protect friends at the expense of project success.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and the people are great

    Cons

    Middle Management suffers from a lack of discipline; no career path provided. Good talent winds up leaving the organization after banging their head against a wall.
