Great Environment, Opportunity for Growth and Smart People

Senior Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

ProsI didn't know how I great I had it here or I would have never left! The environment can't be beat and is extremely creative and energetic, while also casual. The people are very smart and there is plenty of growth opportunity for those who stick around and prove themselves.

ConsThey seem to repeat similar cycles every three months and every year, which can get a little tiresome (haven't we been there, done that before)? It also can be a bit depressing to be such an underdog.

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes the management they introduce can be a bit erratic and off mark, but overall a great place to work and great visionaries in leadership. The key will be to stick to a long term strategy that works for growth.

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