Would not recommend

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsImpressive product pipeline, company prospering financially, many (but not all) friendly and helpful coworkers, fun social activities, great compensation and great core values.

ConsUnderstaffed departments resulting in workers being overloaded and work/life imbalances, people unqualified to lead are promoted to management, managers are self-serving, do not communicate openly or transparently, the work environment is too political with cronyism and cliquish team members who shut out those who don't "fit in" regardless of how well they do their work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting inexperienced people to managers and department heads. Just because someone has been with the company for X number of years and plies their particular trade well (ex. sales, accounting, law, etc.), does not mean they will make a good manager. Establish a methodology (via an external third-party) to collect truly anonymous feedback about managers and take action on the problems. You will continue to be a revolving door and lose good talent otherwise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
