Disorganized, corporate, frustrating

Developer (Current Employee) New York, NY

Pros- Amplify offers a decent starting salary as it has the financial backing of NewsCorp (don't expect a raise though).
- There are still some people there that really care about doing quality work.

Cons- No room for career growth (rampant cronyism, value in previous title - not ability).
- Refers to itself internally as a startup without a hint of irony (Amplify is a business unit of NewsCorp) which leads to long hours without an equity package or a constructive, open culture.
- Serious culture issues -- saying that you have a startup culture doesn't make it so.
- Schizophrenic priorities as the company only seems to think one month out and doesn't value learning from mistakes.
- So. many. meetings.
- Negative feedback, even presented constructively, makes you a target.
- High turnover and difficulty retaining qualified people (see above points).

Advice to Senior Management- Listen to the negative feedback as it's the only honest feedback you're receiving (people that are drinking the koolaid are the ones that stick around for the paycheck).
- Start pulling favors with recruiters; even new hires are dissatisfied

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustrating, disorganized, directionless, floundering.
