Top notch workplace, challenging, positive environment, great products, great future

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
San Rafael, CA

ProsGreat team spirit, lots of collaboration opportunities - across products, across teams, across geographies. Employee benefits among the best in the business. Trusted exec management team. Suitable transparency into the health of the business - strong guidance from the top with frequent communication to global workforce.

ConsMiddle management seems pushed to limits - lots of paranoia and paralysis! Many decisions can only be made through "consensus with the world". Too many restructuring exercises resulting in job losses, product retirements and staff fatique.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time getting to know your staff - don't make rash organizational decisions without proper understanding of how it affects people, products and ultimately your customers!

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