An exciting, distracting, whirlwind environment that is ultimately rewarding

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

ProsThe company has been growing quickly and is experiencing great success in the industry. Coworkers are composed of all-star talent from a variety of industries. Everyone is committed to success by getting things done. People who don't pull their weight or who are on cruise-control aren't kept around. Specific work hours are flexible, but extra hours are the norm. Your ideas can shape how things are done.

ConsThe open-environment workplace can be loud and distracting, making it difficult to focus! even while wearing headphones. Many processes are constantly changing and are not documented yet. The number of paid days off is only average.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the focus on making great products, reduce inefficiencies in processes, and put proper systems in place sooner rather than later.

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