    I have been working at Amplify full-time (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.

    I have been working at Amplify full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are smart, talented, and great to work with. Cool DUMBO location.

    Cons

    Out-of-touch senior executives/management. Bad reorg is not a solution to product development. Ill-defined/non existent biz plan. Talented people are fleeing bc management is stymying them.

    Advice to Management

    Let experienced people lead product development; not armchair executives.
