Great place and people!

Marketing Operations Manager (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsGreat culture, positive place to work, great benefits and overall compensation. Very comprehensive employee services with attention to detail for those services (e.g. gym offers many different classes every month).

ConsVery fast paced and if you are not up to this pace you will get lost and/or lose credibility with your peers in this organization. Also, work life balance in my opinion continues to be a struggle as part of this hard-driving organization. Expectations are VERY high of all contributors with those willing to sacrifice family time or other work/life balance continues to be a struggle.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease provide more cross-organization "pollination". Formal rotation programs across functions -not just for Finance or other established organizations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
