Good company company to work for - but difficult to figure out how to move up

Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsWork culture is good - there's a good sense of trust and delegation. Managers strive for work/life balance. In addition, there's a lot of diversity of job functions and roles.

ConsFor those coming from smaller companies or companies with less virtual meetings, adapting to the semi-virtual work environment takes time. Even if someone works at HQ, they might spend 70% of their time with virtual teams. Promotions take longer than at many other companies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
