Too nice, too slow

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsGreat work-life balance.
People are supportive and non-competitive.
Great for those looking for non-challenging long-term career.
Nice perks.

ConsPassive-aggressive behaviors; no one says "no";
IT infrastructure is a mess and Mac support is lacking. What is this, 2004?
Marketing is not integrated and way behind the curve in terms of modern, social web.
Inadequate support for user-centered design practices.
Takes forever to get anything done because of so many layers and departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn terms of digital marketing, hire more fresh blood with solid digital agency experience. CS should be split into digital and non-digital groups.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
