Boring, stable, and not to tech savvy

Web Developer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsIt was a good enough job, without too much pressure. People were by and large friendly, benies were good. They didn't expect too much of their technical staff which allowed me to learn quite a bit, even though I had to initiate it all. It would have been a great place to calcify, not learn anything, go home on time every single day, that sort of thing.

ConsNot a place to innovate, not a place to push yourself or others to do fantastic things.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need better technical managers, first off. People involved with the business, who know the business, but who can spearhead technology in a professional way. There's a very garage-y approach and I think it hurts the company.
