    Pros

    The people who work here are the best in the Valley. It all stems from these awesome people, most of whom I call good friends. The benefits are above average. And, Ryan, the CEO, is the most down-to-earth millionaire I've ever met. He genuinely cares about every single employee and his company.

    Cons

    If you keep a positive attitude, you're not going to be able to come up with any "cons" for this company.

    Great company in the early days, not anymore with purpose being short-sighted & greedy.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits including reading program, fitness & health club reimbursement, educational & certification reimbursement, amazing corporate culture and lifestyle-oriented employees, fantastic career potential in the mid-2000's before sold out to Liberty media.

    Cons

    Management has lost its focus on the customer and taken short-sighted actions that have decreased market share and negatively impacted the shopping experience, especially for International customers. Management is ego-driven and greedy, consolidating power into very few hands at the top to control the flow of information and hoarded power. This has stifled creativity and created a workplace that is oppressed and unlikely to voice opinions or contribute wholly for fear of conflict and subsequent retaliation by the power elite.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the roots of the company, the CUSTOMER. Every idea, initiative, action should positively impact the shopping experience from placing the order on the site to receiving the product quickly, without surprises and undamaged. Your market share is not secure w/out the customer, don't ever forget that. The cost of shipping or pleasing the parent company matters, but significantly less than your real shareholders.
