    Not a good match for Silicon Valley - Avoid this place

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Coupons.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Compensation & benefits are on par with other local tech companies
    - Free catered lunch every day

    Cons

    - Extremely low quality of employees - few have any prior experience in the Valley culture - the rare talented ones who accidentally ended up here have either left quickly or are actively looking to leave as the economy improves
    - Incompetent management - virtually none have tech experience or have ever worked outside the old-fashioned CPG industry - literally no clue how to run an innovative high-tech company - most never leave their offices
    - No innovation - company is just a rehash of an offline idea (newspaper coupons) with no re-imagining of how to transform CPG promotions for a digital world - this is where your career will come to die
    - Silo organization & no collaboration - you have never worked for a company (esp. in the Valley) with a more hierarchical structure or less cross-dept. collaboration
    Clueless founders - they had an idea for starting the company 13 years ago and nothing has changed since then - they refuse to leave & won't go public because they fear losing control

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring only CPG industry experience for management & Sales. The company is desperately in need of new, talented staff from other smart tech companies. Founders need to go.
