Great boss now, but wasn't always the case.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat discount and gratis. Really fun people to work with. Great company values, they just don't live them.

ConsConstant chaos. I have had more bosses than I can count. Some have been good, but most were really, really, bad. The company never seems to know what their next move is and launches are not successful many time because the teams have no idea what is going on. Sr leadership does not seem to care, and people who perform poorly are often kept around because upper management likes them. Promotions also seemed to be based off of popularity and not actual skill for the job. If you are not someone who adapts to change easily, you will hate this place.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean house starting from the top down. Promote who is the best for the job and not who you like the most...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
